When we first brought Buster home from the shelter, he had a lot of gut issues, including unexplained vomiting and diarrhea.
Our Vet used a type of canned food [not the ID formula] that Buster gobbled up even though he was not interested in the boiled chicken and rice I had given him in the morning. I do not know which formula this irresistible canned food is, but maybe your Vet used that to get Poppy to eat at the office and maybe s/he would let you have some of that to add to the ID.
Regarding the Hill Prescription ID formula, Buster eats the canned ID from time to time whenever he gets really soft poop from eating something he shouldn't [usually grass]. I keep several cans on hand. I have warmed it up in the microwave after refrigeration to make it more fragrant and palatable when Buster seemed to be bored with it. That helped.
He is not fond of the kibble ID, but he likes the canned version. After a few meals, he is usually "normal" enough to start re-introducing his regular food, EVO Red.
I hope Poppy is feeling better by now.
