ShihTzu puppie has Loss of Appetite.  What are some causes?

Sometimes loss of appetite may be due to a pups constipation.  So be observant as to the bowel movements…AT ALL TIMES.
I always suggest taking a look at the consistency of the poop.  Look for blood, or mucus or just simply too hard or too loose.
Then you can talk knowledgeably with your veterinarian when they ask you “how long has the pup had this problem”
Because they will ask you that question.  They will ask for a stool sample.

Can you answer this question?……

treatment for loss of appetite in shihtzu ?

The loss of appetite can vary with the reason why, obviously circumstances that brought it on can be many.
Loss of a human or animal friend can trigger a loss of appetite along with depression.
An internal infection or pain may cause the pup to lose the appetite.
The moods of the pups owner can also attribute to whether the pup eats correctly or at all.
Since there are undetermined factors here, it is difficult to answer this question with one answer for all symptoms.
When in doubt see your veterinarian.

Change of food may be an alternative for awhile. As the pup gets back to a good schedule weening the pup
on a gradual basis can bring them back to a quality dog food to stabalize the eating habits.
