Dog not eating

Short version: How long should I wait before bringing him to the vet?


Long version: My dog was staying with my parents Fri-Mon. When I got him back, he was reluctant to eat... but that is pretty normal, since Grandma gives him lots of treats and people food. He did eventually eat. That was Monday. Tuesday and Wednesday morning he had some vomiting and diarrhea. I figured he got fed something that upset him and to wait. But it's now Thursday night and he hasn't eaten a full meal since Monday. He has eaten a few treats and a Greenie, but if I were sick I would prioritize treats too. He's behaving normally otherwise and he had a normal poop today.



He can be a picky eater but is this going on for too long?

When I first read you post I kind of stopped after seeing that he had vomiting and diarrhea and was more worried, but then went back and read the full post. If he's acting normal and doesn't have vomiting or diarrhea then he might be feeling better. I'd watch him closely and if he does have those symptoms again, or if he's not eating tomorrow, I'd bring him in.

Try some kibble soaked in broth, either beef or chicken, whichever he likes best. See if you can ring his bell with that.

Well the dog is OK - just picky! It was Grandma's spoiling that did it. He is still a bit reluctant to eat his food, but he will once he realizes there is nothing better coming.

Glad he is ok, they can quickly develop a taste for people food over dog food. Hard to convince them that's what there is for them.

This is what I am going to reply too lol. Grandma's spoiling is the reason that's why it needs time for him to eat his own dog food.
