According to the vet, healthy dogs and cats can last "three, four, five days without eating, many even longer than that.

Food is not the main issue, but water is.

If your dog is not eating or drinking water, it can be a big problem.

  1. Coat stools with hot sauce or lemon juice. Add a few tablespoons of canned pumpkin to his food bowl each day.
