    Unhappy 4/5 year old male stopped eating?

    Hey someone please give me your thoughts, heís 4/5 years old and hasnít eaten in about 2 days. I have given him all his favorites. Idk what to do? Is he just getting old?! Please help. No prior medical issues. He is pooping and peeing and moving around still. Doesnít look like heís lost any weight. And i did see him clean himself for a short period of time today. OH and after he turned down all his favorites, i did try to take him outside to eat grass, he DID eat a LITTLE. Please help

    If he is pooping and peeing he's eating something. Are you SURE he's actually the one pooping?

    Regardless, if he's stopped eating he needs an exotic vet, asap. Make sure the vet checks his teeth thoroughly.

    If my old man didn't eat for 2 days, I'd be making an emergency appt with our vet. Not eating for that long is not good at all.
