I have a 1.5 year old female akita that has stopped eating about 3 days ago. Her attitude and body language seems fine.. very playful and looks happy but just not eating at all. She is still drinking water and able to keep it down.
I am concerned how long I should allow this before taking her to the vet. Would it also be a good idea to try wet dog food? I will be making her boiled chicken and rice today to see if that would work.

Thanks

3 days is the longest I'd be willing to wait. You should take her to the vet tomorrow.

Yes I agree you really should take her to the vet if it's been this long.

But has she eaten anything else? Treats? Offer her a piece of chicken or cheese and see if she'll take that. If she does than it might be she's being picky. If she doesn't eat that then I would be very concerned about a potential medical issue.
