Anorexia is a condition in which a dog becomes unwilling to eat. Anorexia can be caused by many factors, including illness, pregnancy, and stress.
When a dog stops eating, she can become dehydrated and malnourished. This can lead to serious health problems or even death if it goes on for too long.
Anorexia usually occurs when dogs are stressed out or anxious about something. The most common causes are the loss of a family member or changes in the household. Dogs also may stop eating due to fear or anxiety related to thunderstorms and fireworks displays.
However, anorexia can also be caused by a physical illness such as kidney failure and severe dental pain. If your vet suspects that your dog’s anorexia is due to an underlying medical condition, he’ll take a blood sample and run tests on it to find out what’s wrong with her body and how best to treat it.
