I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on your dog, please?

I agree that a 14 year old that hasn't eaten in 4 days is likely to be lost soon. He needs the attention of a vet at your earliest convenience...if only to be euthanized. You didn't post a specific question; please clarify.
