All in his head??
Stosh mysteriously stopped eating this...he had vomited one morning but he's 8 mos old and I blamed it on a pig's ear, too many treats, too much of something. After that, he refused food- he was obviously hungry but when I put the food in his elevated feeder he would shy away from it. I did everything but handstands to encourage him, even getting him started by feeding him out of my hand but he ate a few quick bites out of the bowl then would slink away, looking like he was being punished. The vet was ready to start diagnostic testing until we came up with the crazy idea that maybe it was the bowl. Last night I fed him on a flat plate on the floor in a different location and he inhaled every bit, same story today. I guess eating out of that bowl then feeling nauseous gave him an aversion to it. Can't really come up with another explanation other than it was all in his head, not his stomach!
