Wondering if anyone has any advice or thoughts on this: surgery a week ago today. 

Brought her home Thursday night and she didn’t really want to eat. Had bouts of vomiting everything she tried to eat Saturday night into Sunday and then wouldn’t eat. Took her in yesterday for the antinausea injection and got some meds. She ate a can of the science diet in small amounts yesterday afternoon into evening.

Since last night she has refused to eat. Tried regular kibble, ID, and plain rice with no real interest. She’s spent a lot of time in her kennel today. Why else can we do?

Vet said maybe a prescription for entice to cause her to get hungry next?

Here and Now

What meds is she on?  Is her pain being managed  well?  Os it possible  she is hurting?   Sometimes  pain is the reason for not earing..

Try any amd every yummy  food you can rhink of....cheeseburger, scrambled eggs, bavon, cheese pizza, etc.

Ask the Vet about Pepcid also.

Paws crossed for improvement

We finally got her to eat after getting the Entyce! She’s now in Day 3 but eating closer towards her usual each day. Still picky, but we’ve found that she’ll take the old wet food we would occasionally give them as an addition to their regular kibble. Thank you all for the help!
