Post Surgery Concerns: My Papillon, Dog will not eat.

Help: My Dog, Pet just got back home from Surgery and will not eat.

  • Put his regular Kibbles away, he may not want to eat his regular food.
  • Cook him some nice lean, white chicken, turkey, or lean meat,(protein) and add rice, pasta, or even potato to it.(carbohydrates).
  • Try canned dog food; if not eating alone, add a tiny bit garlic powder, or chicken, beef broth to it.
  • Gerber Baby food, with meat, veal, chicken, or turkey.

Whatever food it is, warm it up just a little bit to enhance it's flavors.
Do not wait too long to feed your tiny Papillon, have Nutri- Cal handy to avoid Hypoglycemia

    He might have an upset tummy so food is not appealing to him. Treat the upset tummy if he is still not eating. I hope he is on the mend soon.

    I use Pet n' Shape freeze dried chicken liver treats as a seasoning. They are healthy, crumble easily and leave a fine powder in the bottom of the bag. Put the powder into a shaker-top spice jar and sprinkle over food for a reluctant eater. You can also make more by putting some chunks in a plastic bag and beating them, like bread crumbs.
