Cullen isn't eating!!!! Why???/

So, I took Cullen in to get his pup shots yesterday ( one more to go and we are clear for a while). He had eaten like a horse the night before, even finishing off the chicken paws and extras Giz left behind as she wasn't eating too much that day. He ate breakfast, and we went to the clinic. When we came home, he was pretty much normal, then came dinner... ground beef, chicken liver, and chicken paws... He ate three bites and that was it. I coaxed and coaxed, he ate a bite out of my hand, and then he was finished. I had to toss it after about a half hour.

This morning, he woke up, wasn't quite excited about breakfast ( still mixing TOTW and Orijen) with a lil canned. Went to his place, picked up a few single kibble, and then was finished. I sat with him and he ate a few handfuls from me, and again was finished. It this normal behavior for a pup?

maybe he's not feeling good from the shot.
when you took him in for his shot did
the Vet examine him?

i find the first year or two with a GSD is
the sensitve/delicate years.

Yes, they did an exam, the typical one. Paperwork says no concerns, and they said nothing to me.

Hopefully he's just off his schedule due to the vet visit.

If he's able, I'd just make sure he has a full and happy day out visiting people, exercising, and working up a great appetite for his next meal!

He ate a little more. I am leaving the food out and taking it up, then offering again... will stop around noon as dinner is around 7ish for them, so want to make sure he eats ok!

Well, feeding update:

He ate a little at a time through the day, and stopped around noon when I took up the last little bit. Dinnertime, he ate every last bite, and then searched for more, so we did a little training for treats, and he seems content. I overreact a lot, because I am just really concerned and don't want anything to happen to him!!!!

It sounds like he overate the night before so he just wasn't hungry.
