Customer Question
Hello, My dog has...

Hello, My dog has a hernie and a pancreatitis and refuse to eat. He has a lot of food allergie, so I gave him Horse + sweet patatoes, but refuse it. My vet told me to force feed him. I did for 4 days, but he continue to refuse. He has a lot of medication (famotidine, metronidazole, anti pain, anti inflamatory and anti histaminic). Should I continue force feed him, or is there a solution to help him want to eat? Oh, he also has laxatif because he is a little constipate because of his discal hernie.

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

Natsu

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Natsu?

Nothing, just that he has a lot of food allergy... We tried to gave him Royal Canin convalescence with serynge but there is lactose inside, and he has also problem with lactose. He lost 1 kg, but as he was overweight, now he is good (8.15 kg) but he cannot lose more.

Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I'm sorry to hear that Natsu isn't eating by himself. I recommend asking your vet for an appetite stimulant? Anti-nausea medication?

He didn't react weel with Cerenia. He doesn't react well to medication, so she told me his anti pain (Alvegesic) also has anti nausea inside. Do you know of an appetite stimulant without side effects (because Natsu react badly to a lot of medication ans I don't want him to have another problem)?
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Rachel, Dog Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

I recommend trying some mirtazapine.
