food for an 18 year old chihuaha

My 94 year old mother's service dog is an 18 year old chihuaha who will not eat any dog food anymore.
Any suggestions?

First you should go see a vet. In my heart, I would say, at 18 years young, feed it what ever it's little heart wants. Good luck and give us updates and pictures.

18years? I agree with Shaykeija. If this doggie wants people food give I'd say it's well deserved. Not pasta, but an egg, some chicken, beef whatever.

I agree with others, but I would certainly see a vet ASAP. To encourage dogs to eat, I always buy those ready made greasy chickens - it always works even with the dogs that I get that are literally dying. The only ones that did not respond where parvo dogs.
