no appetite for a week, a day of full eating, then no appetite again!
Cali, my year old Airedale suddenly stopped eating one morning a couple of weeks ago. This dog is a food hound and this happened literally overnight. She went 6 full days without eating a single thing. Drinking water normally. A couple of vet visits during that week; barium x-rays, bloodwork, etc. and no blockages or abnormalities at all. Skin good, temp. good. On the 7th day, vet gave her an appetite stimulant and antacid and she finally ate a couple of treats and a small bowl of food. She came home that night and ate a few more little bits. The next morning, she ate her kibble, some treats, and by the end of the day she was eating well. The vet has put her on antacid liquid and anti-depressants which stimulate appetite. Then a full day of eating like a food hound again. Tons of energy, loads of appetite. Apparently, back to normal. fast forward to today, after 2 days of eating, and she won't get out of bed and will not even look at food AGAIN!
It's like a switch going on and off. Absolutely bizarre. $1400 in vet bills and this is where we are now. No answers and no clue as to why this is happening.
Does anyone have any ideas?
