Jack russell refusing to eat

by Amy
(Ontario, Canada)

My 8 year old jack russell is refusing to eat. I can hear his stomach grumbling but refuses any kind of food (regular dry food, treats, carrot sticks). I have added a bit of water to his dry food and it still did not make a difference. He has been lethargic most of the day and was slow on our walk this morning. Any tips?

Here is a recipe for dogs I got this recipe from my vet and I mix it into there dry food and my 3 Jacks just LOVE it and best of all it is so easy and Healthy
Please email me directly at

Please let me know if you decide to make it for your baby?And it freezes very well too so you can use it as you need it
Good Luck and Enjoy and I do know your baby will eat this!Here is the recipe below!

This is all the ingrediants,Crockpot
Whole Chicken cut in half
Chicken Liver a whole Package
Can of Pumpkin
Fresh green beans Package
Package of Baby Carrots
Package of Yellow Squash
Pkg Celery
2 Sweet Potatos cut up
I sometimes put Broccili in it too you can mix and change all the veggie and you can even add fruit like Apples,Pears etc.
You start with putting in the whole chicken both halfs and then you put in the Carrots,Chicken Livers,Can of Pumpkin,Sweet Potatos and then you put as much water as you can to fill it up and them you let that cook for about 8 hours and I keep draining the fat out every so often
After that you cut up and wash all the veggies and put in the Celery,Squash and then I wait tgill about 1 hour before it is done and then you put in the green beans my 3 like the Green Beans crunchy
You cook it a total of 12 to 13 hours and it freezes well I use it as I need it .It lasts me a wek or 9 day for 3 doggies!

Good Luck and let me know when you make it?

Jack not eating
by: Patty

To me, anytime a dog refuses food for more then 24 hours, it is time to take him to the vet. It can be an indicator that there is something wrong since most dogs love to eat.
Please keep us posted, I'm sure everything is ok but it never hurts to check with an expect when something like this happens!
