Have you thought about tempting him with a bland, home-cooked diet, like half white rice and half ground beef? If that doesn't work, you might try low-sodium chicken or beef broth.

If you believe that your dog's quality of life is suffering, and medical measures are not working, it may be time to think about letting him go. It would be good to talk with you veterinarian about what measures or options might be available.

At that age. If you can find something they will eat. You go with it. I have had to put older dogs on s diet of just canned food and even cooked for them. I wish you the best and hope you find domething they like
