Max didn't eat breakfast or dinner last night. And he didnt eat breakfast today. He seems very happy and playful , and is his usual self. However, I felt his nose, and it seems dry, indicating a cold. Right now, we don't have the money to take him to the vet. So, if nothings better in two days, we obviously will have to. But, we're trying to give him a chance. Any suggestions to get him to eat, or home remedies to get his wet nose back?
I had always heard the wet nose thing was a myth. Our dogs get dry noses quite a bit.
If he is acting okay, I wouldn't worry. What breed is he? Some working breeds are very efficient eaters. I know my dogs only eat when they are hungry. I stopped freaking out about it a long time ago! LOL!
You could try some cooked rice (slightly cooled) and some boiled chicken. Also maybe some chicken broth. Those things are easy on the digestive tract if he is a little upset. Very palatable as well. Let us know how he's doing.
Thanks for the advice. He's a pomeranian, so I guess sometimes he is a picky eater. I was worried, but I mixed his natural balance duck & potato formula with a little of cesar's wet beef food, and he went for it. I guess he was getting bored, lol. Seems fine now though, thank god.
yeah the dog's nose thing is a myth. Dog's nose is often dry after sleeping.
Regarding adding ceasars to his food, I think that's a mistake, because he's going to expect it now. Missing 2-3 meals with a dog that normally eats fine can be worrisome, but if he is otherwise acting health and happy and playful, I wouldnt' sweat it.
Never trust a tall dwarf... he's lying about something.
