We have an 11 Year Old Sheltie who has been picky lately and not eating his dog food. He's always had a sensitive stomach and would sometime vomit his food but for the most part he's been healthy and energetic. The past month he's started to act a bit more lethargic and refusing to eat his dog food. He has no problem eating human food(following strict guidance for safe human dog food) but he tends to spit it up sometimes. He's been to the vet before for problems with vomit but this time he seems a little different and not as energetic. We have tried multiple dog foods, wetting his dog food, and mixing it but he seems to simply want to eat the human food. I know he is getting older but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as we are planning to take him to the vet in a couple days to get checked out.View Thread
