My male Cavalier has stopped eating. This has been going on for a few weeks. He only nibbles at things, and won't eat what he has been eating for years. Vet said bloodwork was fine.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the dog's name and age?

Domi will be 4 on April 2nd.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Domi

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Domi?

Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

Weight loss?

Vomiting?

Did they check his urine and his heart?

Paul

No weight loss. No vomiting. Physical exam, listened to his heart, and blood work. No urine test.

Okay thanks

If he is not losing weight and has no GI signs then to be candid I am not worried just yet

Does he appear to be in any discomfort? Out of sorts?

Paul

No weight loss. No vomiting. Physical exam, listened to his heart, and blood work. No urine test.He does not appear to be in any discomfort, and other than refusing to eat, acts normal.

Okay thanks

I dont like the fact that this has been going on for a few weeks

If this was my patient then I would do an abdominal ultrasound right away just to make sure there was nothing going on in the abdomen

Always better to err on the side of caution

Does that make sense?
