Why won't my new doggie not eat today?
I've had my rescue chihuahua/miniature pinscher for a week now. He's supposedly 1 yrs old, but I believe he's no more than 6 months. He's on antibiotics because of his kennel cough & he is quite underweight-- 3.5 lbs.
When I was sent home with him, they told me to feed him chicken broth and plain baked chicken (shredded). We fed him that about three to four times a day and then we added in different types of food. All organic. His favorite now is salmon and sweet potato by purina beyond with some kibble on top of it. He enjoys bacon treats and mini carrot sticks.
Today, though, he won't eat anything I give him. No treats, no meals, no chewy bones. He's not even drinking water. He has pooped and peed twice today and he obviously loathes the cold today, so he doesn't want to be outside for long. He seems to just want to cuddle and sleep all day today.
Should I be worried? Or maybe this will pass?
