    Hi All

    Pip has refused her breakfast today, but her tum is making all sorts of strange noises! Her ears are down and she just looks sad.....

    Do your dogs get off days where food just doesnt interest them?

    Thanks

    Sometimes Selma will go for a day or two without even nibbling at food. I don't worry about it, she won't allow herself to starve!

    If you're worried, keep an eye on Pip and maybe try some plain chicken or scrambled eggs in the morning. :)

    Bess sometimes does this, she may have eaten something and her tummy is a bit upset, she should be fine. However if she still deson't eat within three days it is best to take her to the vet :)

    Dogs do have off days and dont eat much just like us really,but the noises could be a tummy bug.....our sharpei is prone to tummy problems(most sharpei have stomach problems!)when his makes rumbling sounds and you can feel his tummy kind of fizzing we have to take him to the vets and vet gives him an injection of antibiotics and then a course of antibiotics......if Pip isnt any better in a day or so i would ring your vets just to be on safe side....
    Hope Pip is feeling better soon :)

    I would try giving him some plain chicken and rice or maybe scrambled egg just something easy on his stomach and if he doesn't get better in a couple of days take him to the vet. It could just be an off day.
