Dog Specialist: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 8 months ago

Have there been any changes to the diet? New food, including a change of flavors or protein source within the same brand? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment?

Any diagnostics performed such as bloodwork?

When did Duke begin feeling unwell?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
no changes to the diet, All is blood work came back normal. I'm wondering if he might have ate something that made him feel sick. He seems to be better today, but still not eating- if I feed him biscuits he will eat them
Dog Specialist: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 8 months ago

It's very possible. Is he on any medication at this time?
