snow will only eat chicken and rice will not eat her regular food or biscuits. all bloodwork is normal. she did eat a plastic bag which she passed I believe. this was two weeks ago. she is not eating enough I believe to sustain her. and she has lost weight. I am sick about this.

Has your vet done any x-rays? Maybe she has an obstruction and that is causing her not to eat. How old is she? Does she have any other medical conditions?

If she has an obstruction the plastic may not show on radiographs but, a gas pattern will. You vet could also run a barium series.

Is this is an option for you? if so I'd schedule sooner rather than later. Paws crossed and healing prayers.

Can you try feeding her other human type meals, like hamburger, salmon, sardines, etc? She may just not like her regular food anymore. I make burger patties with hamburger, chopped zucchini, chopped carrots, blueberries, an egg, some oatmeal - sort of like a meat loaf - then make patties and grill them. They always get mine to eat. You can feed by itself, or wet the kibble and mix it all together. Try just the patties first to see if it is the kibble she is refusing. If the patties work, maybe a kibble change may also.

 

I don't know if she has problems with other proteins - mine actually doesn't tolerate chicken well - but maybe it is worth a try to see if she will eat other things.

 

I would go back to the vet too for extra tests if she still isn't eating.

Snow's ultrasound came back ok - nothing extremely out of the ordinary, she is eating a little better, but still does not seem normal. any one have any other ideas. I know I am not walking her as far because of the heat and her almost collapse in it, but does any one think it is her age and she is just changing. She is nine going on ten.

It might be the heat combined with her age. Dexter has been off and on his food all summer, and him being off mostly coincides with it being hot. Now that fall's approaching and it's getting closer to a reasonable temperature, he's back on his food. And he's a lot more lively too!

 

We tend to keep our seniors (right now, just Dexter) just a touch heavier than ideal to allow for loss of appetite because it seems to be a common thing. So even though Dexter's been varying up and down about 5 lbs this summer, he's been between 2lbs over and 2lbs under his ideal weight, and not getting down to 5lbs under.
