    Default Not eating

    My Finley hasn't been eating well. Last week, he would eat his morning food topper, graze a little but ate dinner.
    This week he isn't eating much of anything. No changes in personality or activity. No poo changes. I haven't weighed him, but he appears to have lost some weight. Should I be worried?

    How old is he n what are you feeding him? Is there any missing bits on his toys/ropes etc.

    Watch his poops...are they normal or soft serve?

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    Finley is 11 months (Next week is his 1st birthday!).
    No poo issues, always on top of that. LOL!
    I took him to the vet today. The physical exam was normal. Finley refused everything offered to him by the vet. Labs were drawn; expecting results tomorrow morning. I made him boiled chicken and rice as per vet and hand fed him. He didn't eat much.

    As long as he’s eating a bit it’s still good. Definitely keep us posted with the results from the vet.

    His appetite should come around, just make sure he is still drinking water or talking ice chips.

    Thanks so much for your encouragement and follow up.
    Update: Lab work came back negative but he began having watery stools midday. They were too watery to test.
    After lots of sleep yesterday, he appears better today. No diarrhea, grazing food, & played fetch. I'm keeping a close eye on him.
