Boiled hamburger mixed with cooked plain white rice is the usual thing for dogs with digestive issues. But if it's an appetite thing, he may like canned dog food.

First make sure his lost appetite is not because the meds aren't working. Has he been on them long? If it's more than a day or two, and he's not feeling better yet, I'd call your vet.

The pedialite is a good thing though. You don't want him dehydrated. You test a dog for dehydration exactly like you test a scouring baby calf.

Maybe I didn't interpret the title right. You asked, "Anyone have any tips for getting a dog to eat." My thought was, the younger, fatter, and more tender looking, the better. :wink:
