Q. My dogs is a very active dog and just recently ge started to not be active hes drinking water but not eating.

A. You might need to keep an eye out for symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhoea and tempt him to eat with something light and in easy to digest ( in case he has an upset stomach). If anorexia ( I.e. Not eating ) is persisting for more than 48hrs , it is definitely the time to have him checked over.
