what to do with continued loss of appetite w/o any other change in behavior?
(apollo beach, fl)
I have a 5 y/o Jack Russell. I came to FL from MD for a med school rotation and brought him along with me. On 8/19, last Monday he started vomiting mucous fluid. Went to vets on Wednesday 8/21 due to continued loss of appetite and was diagnosed w/ a tape worm and treated for that and given anti-nausea meds. Lack of appetite continued and he went back to the vets on Saturday, 8/24. Blood work revealed only slightly elevated white blood cell counts so he was given antibiotics as well as something to help with his diarrhea. Still showing no appetite. Have been administering meds w/ yogurt and canned dog food to get something in him. Also syringe feeding protein-based baby food for nutrition. Throughout this whole time he has continued to keep drinking on his own and he still enjoys playing fetch. Only change is lack of appetite. Any thoughts or suggestions?!?!
