Hi , I'm James DVM MRCVS and would like to help you with your question

I am sorry to hear about your little friend .

At times when dog don't eat , it is not always due to them not liking the food but rather as a result of other underlying problems .

Problems such as dental diseases (which Yorkies are know for) , internal disease such as kidney and liver disease and the list goes on and on .

For us to try and discover the reason why Rosie is not eating we must have her examined by a vet which will be able to instruct you on what might be the problem as well as advise tests which will help him come to a diagnosis and a course of treatment .

I hope this has helped you .

If you have any further questions, please do no hesitate to ask
