Q. My Shih Tzu is not eating, what should I do? I have no money
A. Withhold food for 12-24 hours. Allow small amounts of water or unflavored PediaLyte. Resume feeding a bland diet (1:1 ratio of plain boiled boneless chicken and plain white rice). Feed in small, frequent amounts. Serve it warm or mix in a teaspoon or two of baby food to stimulate the appetite. Transition to the regular diet once the appetite returns. If it doesn't, you will need to see your vet to determine the reason and treat as indicated.
