He should not go anytime without eating after this. He may need to eat wet food or soft food for a few days after the tooth extraction but overall he should be fine. If your doctor is telling you that he is going to need to go without eating then I suggest finding a new doctor. T am a vet tech and have experienced many tooth extractions and have yet to see a dog who is in so much pain that they will not eat.
