Customer Question
I have a toy...

I have a toy poodle and he is 9 years old. He has been diagnosed with a sensitive stomach and his diet is the special Hills diet for digestive problems. He has always been a pickey eater, but I am having problems with him eating at all. He will go 2 to 3 days without eating. I cook him chicken and sometimes he will eat it and sometimes not. He don't like the special diet food. We have always fed him dog food grain free. I guess I am a worry wart.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

3 or 4 years ago he got a virus and was very sick. they kept him in the animal hospital in Waco for 3 days and gave him IV's and medication. But until a month ago he was fine, and he spit up some blood and that is when we put him on the special diet.

Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand your dog is not eating his prescription food for a sensitive stomach. I am sorry to hear about this problem. How many days has it been since the last time he ate food? Has there been any vomiting or diarrhea?
