Q. My dog was diagnosed from DISTEMPER?and he wont eat please give advice

A. Has he received medications to help him with the sickness ? If so you can try to encourage him to eat cooking some chicken , offering small amounts at time. Warming food up slightly can help too. Offer the food and then remove it, so it doesn t dry up. He is probably thirsty but don' t leave a bowl full of water down, offer small amounts little and often. If drinking a lot with nausea increases the chance of sickness , so little and often is the key.
