Loss of Appetite

A change in appetite is one of the first indicators your pet may be experiencing a health issue. If your pet has a decreased appetite, is refusing to eat or seems to be in pain while eating, they should be promptly evaluated by a veterinarian. Take note of when your pet’s loss of appetite began so you can share this information with your veterinarian.

When to visit VCA Urgent Care

  • Your pet hasn’t eaten for more than 12 hours
  • A diabetic animal that refuses even one meal
