Jack Russell not eating
by: Anonymous

Your Jack could be constipated from not getting dietary fiber. Will your Jack drink? You could give him some pedialyte to get his electyte and glucose levels up. You could also hand feed him yogurt from a dropper or try to prepare some bland food like chicken and rice to see if he will take it. However, if it has been a few days since he has eaten you should take him into the vet because it is unusual for dogs to stop eating.

Hope everything is ok!
