My 12 yr old corgi is not eating as he used too. He still eats all of his food, but he eats maybe 4-6 hours after we give him the food. Whereas before he would eat right away. He doesn't act much different otherwise. Still has a decent energy level, nothing else seems unusual that I would need to worry. But is this something I should see the vet about? I'm asking here first because I don't really have the money to spend on the vet.

Yes, you definitely need to see the vet. When a dog that has always loved food begins to shy away from food, that probably means that he is feeling sick, and not eating until he gets super hungry. A vet can do a blood panel to look for diseases that may not show up otherwise (yet). Most diseases can be treated or alleviated with the right medicine. He might also be having problems with his teeth. Animals can often suffer, but cover it up quite well, so please get him checked out.
