Your dog’s not-eating may be illness (enteritis, stomach ulcers, pancreatitis, addiction, etc.), pain, stress, or simple complaints. Also, he may not be able to eat it because his mouth hurts, such as periodontal inflammation and alveolar abscess. Give him delicious snacks. If he doesn’t eat snacks, there is a possibility of illness or disease.
If his loss of appetite is the result of an illness, your veterinarian may recommend a prescription diet to meet his nutritional needs while the underlying disease is treated. These diets aren’t always particularly tasty, especially if he is used to regular treats or human food.

In more severe cases, your veterinarian may prescribe appetite stimulants, suggest syringe-feeding a liquid diet, or insert a feeding tube.

If his symptoms persists so far, take him to the hospital. However, if not, keep an eye on him 2 days.
