Not eating after neuter
Can't seem to figure out why Roscoe isn't eating today. Yesterday when he came home from surgery I offered him about 1/3 of a regular meal, which he gobbled, although I had to feed it to him by hand as he had his two top baby canines extracted and the vet said he might be too sore to pick the food up. He kept the food down well, so after about an hour I fed him the rest of his meal.
Today, he hasn't eaten ANYTHING except for a few treats that Tim has offered him. We tried feeding him by hand again and he's totally not interested, although he was just interested in my fettuccine alfredo!
Is there a reason he wouldn't be eating? We called the vet and she said that if he still isn't eating regularly by Monday to bring him in. I can't help but think he's just being a picky boy, but I'm a little worried because he usually scarfs down every meal, although every now and then he's not really interested. Help?
