    Help!!! Dog not eating for about 1 week

    Hello all, I have a 5-year-old puggle that won't eat anything for about 1 week now.

    Wednesday: He only ate half of his food (Taste of The Wild), which seem abnormal, He went to the back and started eating grass and threw up. Drank Water ok
    Thursday: He vomited up again mostly biles i gave no food since he vomited. Drank more than normal water
    Friday: He vomited biles, few times during that day, he ate a very small portion of boiled chicken. Drank lots of water
    Saturday: more vomiting, but keep drinking water
    Sunday: ate very little of rice, lots of water and lots of peeing.

    Monday(yesterday) lots of vomit on the morning (biles), energy level seem lower than normal took him to the Vet, they ran a full blood exam on him came everything came back normal, they ran X-rays and everything seem normal, they gave him some under the skin fluids, and some anti-vomit medication, also gave me some pills to to kick his appetite, i gave him one, he threw it up, gave him another one i left inside the crate a small amount of blend formula food

    Tuesday: When I woke up this morning he ate that, but peed a ton (inside his crate, never done that), more than I ever seem him pee. I left him with a bit more food, checked back on him few hours later and no eating, took him back to the vet, they repeated the x-rays (just in case) and did a urine test everything came back negative...

    So the doctor gave me a few pills for like gastroenteritis, another for vomiting, one for the stomach and one for parasites. She told me she had no idea what's going on and why he won't eat but to try that...

    Im very worried that ill wake up next morning and my dog will just be dead from starvation. Any suggestion is greatly appreciated.

    I am so very sorry to hear about your dog.
    I have no advice other than to recommend you see another vet and get a second opinion.
    Also, I'd keep offering a little bit of chicken and rice throughout the day.

    Can you get a second opinion from a different vet? Did she do stool samples?

    I hope your dog is okay. It's time to get a second opinion from a different vet clinic.

    She did not because he is not pooping at all.

    In the meantime maybe you could try giving him bone broth or some other liquid with some nutritional value.

    Have his teeth/mouth been thoroughly checked?

    Has he lost weight? Is he eating treats or anything else?
