My Sheltie is recovering from severe acute pancreatitis and sepsis. Drinking water. But he will not eat a thing. Any suggestions on how to revive his appetite? I've tried chicken and brown rice, wet dog food, and cheese. Thank you

Mix ground meat with white rice. Serve it warm not hot then you can mix it with the dog food. I think chicken can upset the dogs stomach. We never used chicken and brown rice. If the dog won't eat it with the dog food then give just ground meat & white rice.

Thank you for the suggestion. Unfortunately, this dog is allergic to beef. Have to stick with chicken for this guy. But I will try mixing it with his wet food.

You might try what my Vet told me to feed my Hound when he got pancreatitis. I just feed him white rice and cottage cheese. Took him a day or so and now he eats it right up. I've slowly been adding some good dry dog food into it   and he seems fine. I wouldn't use any type of meat unless your Vet tells you too. Sometimes chicken is OK. Try the white rice and cottage cheese ! Good luck!
