What can cause a dog to stop eating?

Some conditions can cause a dog to simply not feel hungry, while others lead to a hungry dog who is unable to eat, for example, due to pain or nausea. 

Some dogs can experience a temporary decrease in appetite if they are stressed, or if there are too many changes in their environment.

My dog’s not eating, what should I do?

If your dog stops eating for 24 hours or more, seems unwell in themselves, is eating less than usual, or is showing any other signs, then you should make an appointment with your veterinarian.
