I am very sorry to see that none of our other Experts have reached out to you before now. I just came online and found that your question had not been addressed. How is your companion at this time? What breed is he? You mention a loss of appetite but that he "gobbles his food up when fed". Can you further elaborate on the loss of appetite?
