Its been 2 months since I started feeding raw and it's been great for my girl. Now all of a sudden she has lost her appetite tonight I gave her a chicken quarter and all she ate was the leg portion and left the rest just completely refused to eat it. I did start a very strong antibiotic for her about 2 weeks ago because she has a bacterial tick disease, Ehrlichia. She takes 4 100mg pills twice a day so she's getting 800mg a day of Minocycline. I'm assuming its related to the meds cause we didn't have this prob at all till just the past week shea taking the meds for 4 weeks. On another not I have done kibble left from when I switched her over and just to try I have her some she ate it when I tried but then it took her half a day to eat it yesterday cause she has to eat with food and she threw up cause she didn't eat it in time after I gave her the meds in the morning. Anyone have any thoughts or any experiences similar too this? I have looked up the meds and can't find anything that could relate to the situation. I would appreciate any help since she's not eating much at all and I'm afraid she's gonna get malnourished!!! Thanks

Definitely call the vet!!!!!!! If there is a pet ER near you, you might want to contact them. I really hope everything's okay and assuming it is, make sure she either eats before you give her the antibiotics or mix it with her food. Antibiotics are very hard on the system with out the food and can upset their tummies terribly! Hopefully that's all the problem is - just upset.

You see, I'm not like a alpha,

I'm the ALPHA

The vet said to the with a full meal so that tells me it def can and will and had upset get stomach I make sure she eats something before I give her the meds. I'm also increasing her exercise cause she had more energy since we started the meds and I'm wondering too if she's not bring enough off for her to be hungry enough to eat twice a day cause before the meds she ate once a day and did fine I think that's part of it too she's just not as hungry as never when she says once a day??
