My poor doggie

My poor doggie Shiloh is feeling horrible (not eating) and the vets have no idea why. :(

Awwwww..... poor pup :( Have they done x-rays? Have you switched her diet? She looks like a sweet girl and I hope you get it figured out soon.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

How old is Shiloh?? And what is his breed mix? Maybe something genetic with one of the breeds he is might be affecting him?

I would see another vet for a second opinion. Most vets at least run blood tests and try to find out what is wrong.


What other symptoms does Shiloh have? Is he pooping, peeing, vomiting? Weak? Lethargic? playing? Panting? ((Panting excessively without environmental cause is a sign of pain))

I agree.

How long has this been going on? I might try boiling some chicken and then making some rice (cooked well) adding it to the shredded chicken with a bit of plain yogurt and a touch of canned pumpkin. She will likely eat this and it is easy on her tummy if she is sick to her stomach.

You might encourage her to eat what Inga suggested by adding a bit of garlic to it. Garlic is good for digestion. Also, if you can get your hands on Apple Cider Vinegar with "mother" (organic and such) this might encourage her health to spike up for the better. The vinegar is a tried and trusted holistic method for many ailments. Best yet, you can find it in regular grocery stores for like 3$!! My senior muffin loved it.

He said if he didn't eat any boiled burger to bring him in for further testing.
