Six Common Causes for Loss of Appetite in Pets

Loss of appetite, also known as Anorexia, is fairly common in pets. More often than not it is an indicative symptom of an underlying disease rather than a disease in itself. Besides complete disinterest in eating regular food, some early signs of anorexia could also be lethargy, eating less food than regular diet, vomiting, weight loss and loss of excitement for treats.

Here’s listing down six common causes for Anorexia in Pets:

1. Infections:

Infections such as Liver infection, urinary tract infection, pancreatic infection or other common infections like gastrointestinal infections and periodontal/ dental infections can cause loss of appetite.


2. Medicinal Side Effects:

Pets tend to lose appetite when introduced to new medications. It also reduces their medicinal threshold in the course.

3. Infestation Of Ticks And Skin Disorders:

Presence of ticks and mites in the fur coats of pets cause excessive itching and other skin problems. This may also lead to loss of appetite.

Any adverse impact on them such as negativity in the house, separation from owner or death of a family member can also lead to anorexia in pets.
