Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. That ball was most likely Kingston's security. He had been so attached to it for 7 years, that I have no doubt it is causing him stress. If they wanted to take the ball away from him in order to keep him more calm, it should have been done many years ago. It is too late to do that now. I would give the ball back to the Kingston, and hopefully he will start eating again. If he doesn't, then he definitely needs to see a vet. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
