ENCOURAGE THEM TO EAT.
Research shows that sick dogs recover faster and better when they eat sooner. So, try your best to encourage your dog to eat. Something other than their regular kibble might whet their appetite. Try some bland food like boiled chicken breasts or vegetables like pureed squash to aid their digestion.
Dogs refuse to eat for a variety of reasons, and it’s not always about underlying medical conditions. Often, if your dog skips a meal or two, it’s no cause for panic for as long as they’re hydrated. But if they’ve gone for days without food, it’s critical that you take your dog to the vet right away. Your vet will determine any health issues your dog might have and advise you on how best to care for your pup.
