A. It maybe that he has just picked up a slight infection. You can try tempting to eat with some cooked chicken and serve it whilst it is still warm as it smells stronger and can encourage eating. If there is any chance that it has got hold of any toxins then you should have it checked out by your vet straight away. If the chicken doesn't work then it's worth having a check up and maybe some blood tests anyway.
