    Default Herc not eating

    So Hercules out of no where is not eating his dinner, normally he is an absolute pig and ate his lunch with no problem... Should I be worried?

    If he is drinking water, using the bathroom, and is around his normal energy level I wouldn't be too concerned. Sometimes they can get picky or are upset with you so won't eat out of protest. If he isn't drinking water or starts heaving/throwing up that's not a good sign. Otherwise I'd wait and see if he eats tomorrow.

    It could mean he's just NOT himself tonight… as long as he's acting normal otherwise I wouldn't worry about it. If he refuses food in the morning, then I would call the vet.

    Frankie will sometimes stop eating. He just gets bored with his food. He will scarf it down with a treat in it though. How is he acting otherwise??

    Well he ended up eating his food late last night(left it out for him) and then he ate this morning... Guess he just had an upset stomach. I prolly jumped the gun worrying but he is normally obsessed with food so it was pretty shocking to see him not eat

    @kenc87 - you are not the only one, Ms Ellie had a HARD day of playing at doggie daycare yesterday, and we took her to a family function outside of our house, so she did not get her regular night time "nap" and had a late snack, so she was TIRED this AM, and did not want her breakfast, but I checked on her at Daycare this AM, and they said she being her normal self!!


    Thanks and much Love,
