I own a male neo mastiff which is like around 5+ years old. All these days it was good in aspects of his health except a few surgeries he had undergone like cherry eye in both his eyes which I heard that it was quite common in this breed.But nowadays he is not eating his food properly except his favorite chicken and Mutton and not even eggs.Consulting a veterinarian told that everything is normal after a few medical check ups including blood test.But still the problem couldn’t be diagnosed but the doctor told it may due to some nutritional deficiencies.I am too nervous that he didn’t have his food from 2 days.
Kindly advice on this. Is this a problem caused due to gas trouble

Wanted to add.. If he has gas then yes it could hurt his belly but that could indicate his body doesn’t agree with the food and needs to be slowly changed up.. He could have a food allergy and sometimes it takes patience and effort to figure animals out. They can develop allergies later on or at any age.
