Dog that wont eatI have a 2 yr old Jack Russell bitch that simply wont eat. In every way she is fit and healthy but eats just enough to keep herself alive. A mouthful every 3 or 4 days, I have tried every type of food known to man. I have taken her to the vet and he gave her steroids which worked for a while but obviously I dont want to keep on giving her steroids its just not good for them. Right now I am back to force feeding her, literally shoving every mouthful down her. I have even had a visit from the RSPCA after a neighbour reported me for starving my dog which is so far from the truth. They were lovely about it and I showed them what she does when you give her food, sniff it and walk away. I am at my wits end and really need something to give this dog an appetite so she doesnt look like a cruelty case and doesnt compromise her own health anymore.
