Temporary loss of appetite for a day or two is nothing to be alarmed about.  However, prolonged appetite loss is usually caused by some underlying health problem. Dogs and most cats typically have healthy appetites, although occasionally animals are picky eaters. Occasionally your pet may lose his or her appetite due to stress, a lack of exercise, or even a change in the weather and like humans, when our pets do not feel well, they sense the need to cleanse or detoxify.

However, if your dog suddenly loses her appetite or stops eating altogether for more than two days, coupled with weight loss, then you should take her to the vet for a check-up. The dog appetite loss is most likely caused by some underlying health problem.

Common reasons for appetite loss include:  

Stress

Dogs and cats prefer habits, routines and dislike stress. When daily routines are disturbed, are stressed or ill, or a new pet is introduced, appetite loss may follow.  

Digestive Problems

Digestive problems such as diarrhea, vomiting, constipation, Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Irritable Bowel Syndrome can cause appetite loss. Fasting or withholding food for 24 hours is recommended in the case of diarrhea, however, adequate water must be provided to prevent

dehydration.

Bacterial or Viral Infections

Infectious diseases can cause serious illness, fever and loss of appetite. Fasting or withholding food for 24 hours is recommended to allow your pet to devote less energy to digestion and fight infection. However, adequate water must be provided to prevent dehydration.

Respiratory Diseases

Upper respiratory disease such as asthma and Kennel Cough can stress your animal and may prevent them from being able to smell their food.

Other health problems that may cause dog appetite loss include:

Dental or periodontal diseases

Pancreatitis

Kidney failure

Urinary tract infections

Severe worm infestations

Addison's disease

Cancer

Diet may be responsible for appetite loss. When dogs and cats are presented with food they dislike, they may simply stop eating. Also, changing your pet’s brand or type of food may cause digestive upset, meanwhile, some pets require dietary changes to keep them interested. It is recommended that you feed a holistic, grain-free and all natural food and suggested brands include Blue Buffalo, Evo, Merrick, Natural Balance and Wellness varieties. Some foods contain digestive enzymes that help support healthy digestion, absorb nutrients and promote microbial balance in the gut.

For some animals, heating the food may encourage your pet to be more receptive. Dogs and cats tend to prefer foods with strong smells and warm food provides more scent and often, palatability.

Many health issues can manifest as loss of appetite. If your pet has not eaten for 48 hours, seek medical attention immediately.
