POTP for Whitey

After being away for a week, I'm afraid I have to ask for POTPs for Whitey.

He hasn't been eating well these days. 

At first, we just thought that he was getting picky again-- hoping he'd pick up on his appetite eventually.

Unfortunately, this hasn't been the case. I wasn't here to observe it first hand, so I didn't pick it up soon enough. It seems that his condition is worsening by the day.

Whitey, our Senior White Dog.
He's only consuming enough for him to have energy to wake up, walk a little and move a little. On the bright side, he still has enough spunk to get mad at the boys when they mess with him, but he's worryingly old. Also, because he's a senior (about 10 to 12 years of age), he has muscle atrophy, too. 

Should I be expecting his health to rapidly deteriorate like this? Two weeks ago, he was slowly but surely gaining weight. This week, he's just getting thinner by the day.

I'm started feeding him our recovery formula (Royal Canin's Recovery Food and Cerelac). We pray that he'll get better soon, but it'll really help if you could pray with us.

Update: We had Whitey admitted to the vetties today. He will be staying in their clinic for 24 hours with a drip.
