    Has there been anything that may have triggered this at all? Have you had her teeth checked?
    What was she eating before she stopped? had you changed her food?
    Has she had any previous illnesses in her life?
    Sorry lots of questions,just trying to get a good picture.

    have you thought about trying another vet?? 2 weeks is a very long time for this to be going on so i think a second opinion would be a good way to go

    just to add my lab is very picky and has times when she`ll leave most of her food then times when she`ll eat like a horse but i still think a second opinion is a good idea

    You say your bitch is having a phantom, how far pregnant does she think she is?

    Just had a thought, Has she got any sign of discharge or a temperature.
    I'd be concerned about Pyometra :(

    2 weeks. I am no vet but feel concerned, it seems a long time. Something must be wrong somewhere. I see Rona is asking questions about the phantom, so will leave it to the experts but I think you need to be taken seriously.

    My girl had quite a few phantom pregnancies to the point where the vet strongly advised us to have her spayed. I didn't experience any feeding problems just the other signs. Good luck x

    I think i too would get a second opinion.Even if it was a phantom pregnancy,she would be eating,probably more than usual.
    Has she actually eaten NOTHING ? or just picking at food?
