Generally intestinal parasites will cause increase in appetite and weight loss or diarrhea and occasionally vomiting.

With Snoopy's age being 15 unfortunately, we also need to be concerned for possible cancer somewhere or organ failure internally.

I need to recommend that Snoopy get some blood work checked and imaging of Snoppy's abdomen. If you have a regular veterinarian please get him seen as soon as you can as with an older pet things can get much worse very quickly.
