Find a Question:
my 5mo shih tzu pup who’s a super glutton suddenly stopped eating. help!?
he’s also not as active/hyper as before. he spends his idle time sleeping.
it started when we moved houses and left the other pup behind with our cousins.
i tried feeding him people food but to no avail. i did see him gnawing on a steak bone and grilled fish. i fed him small bits of bananas but he only ate 2 bits and didn’t touch the rest. he also loved cotton candy but i was afraid it’s bad for him so i didn’t give him much.
i tried to just feed him puppy treats but he’s picky about that and would only eat the bacon and not the liver sticks.

Okay, I know this may not be funny, my Shih tzu suddenly began eating like a Saint Bernard!!! I actually called the vet to find out the recommended amount for an almost 2 year male! Good luck and try not to worry, I bet he’ll start eating again soon!

Your dog might have a bone lodged in its throat or stomach. Maybe it has the parvo virus. Take it to the vet or he could die!!!!

It is generally not recommended that you feed him human food. (It is probably the reason why he doesn’t like his kibbles and puppy treats anymore) Many human food are WAY too salty for him (even though human food tastes better!), his body couldn’t handle it for long, and it is really bad for him if you are feeding him a lot.
It’s possible that he’s just missing the other puppy and old home and is still adapting to the new environment. You should give him some time and try not to bug him that much. If he doesn’t want to play, just let him be on his own.
There might be some other reasons that he’s loosing his appetite. But with the information given, we couldn’t really say much if he’s physically sick or not.
