Good morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and would like to help.

Due to the nature of this venue, I cannot diagnose or prescribe but can offer advise and possible home remedies where appropriate. The website will offer a phone call but I cannot make phone calls at this time but am happy to help.

I am so sorry that sweet Rubie is not feeling well. Most likely she is still in some discomfort from the extractions during her dental or feeling nauseous from the anesthesia. Often, giving Rubie Pepcid AC 10 mg every 8 hrs will decrease any feeling of nausea that may cause this lack of appetite. Many people recommend trying rotisserie chicken from your grocery store which is very aromatic and may tempt Rubie ....I have other tips but if you would prefer to speak, I am unable to make phone calls. Let me know if you would prefer a call and I will opt out.

Please let me know how Rubie is doing and if I can answer any other questions.

Sincerely, ***** *****
