11 year old schnauzer won’t eat his kibble (will eat treats), and had collapsed today
(Ontario, Canada )
I have an 11 year old miniature schnauzer, he has always been healthy, and had a full appetite. Llatley he avoids his food, doesn’t get excited when we mention his dinner and simply will not eat anything other than treats and human food. I am glad he has an appetite at all, but I wish I knew how to get him to eat his dog food. I have tried soft food, i have tried mixing meat or treats into his kibble and nothing seems to help. Any ideas?
Also, today (he hadn’t eaten breakfast or dinner) he was laying out in the grass when our neighbours dog ran over, he got territorial as always got up and barked until the dog left. Then went back to lay down in the grass again and collapsed as though his legs gave out, he didn’t lose consciousness but was obviously shaken up at what happened. I have been monitoring him ever since, he has had a nap and is now in bed but you can imagine how horrified I am and all the many thoughts running through my mind.
I will be getting him to the vet as soon as possible to be checked out, but I would appreciate any advice. Thank you so so much!!
