    I have a lab (he is about 9) that has some kind of infection! he has been to the vet and is now on a big dose of antibiotics which is making him lose his appetite! he has barley eaten anything in the past day or two I know it's the pills!!!! my question is does anyone know what I could mix up that would be really nutritious that I could force feed him.


    Any info would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!

    I'd really suggest you call your vet back and get some advice from her/him.

    He does have to go back in a few days! I was just wondering if there was anything I could do in the mean time!!!!

    He is eating enough to survive though!!!

    I agree with the above posters, you can try however in the meantime to tempt him with white fish, tuna, scrambled eggs or some chicken..... do mix some white rice with the fish/chicken or you may have a lot of runny poop to cope with too!

    Best of luck!

    Okay......... for anyone else dealing with a sick dog.


    #1 see you vet!!!!!

    #2 if you know the antibiotic pills are why your dog is not eating you can try what I just found
    it's called Nutri-cal
    http://www.petco.com/product/7708/Tomlyn-Nutri-Cal-for-Dogs.aspx

    It's loaded with calories!!!! and my sick dog doesn't seem to mind it.

    #3 See your vet!!!!!
