Question:

Dog is just recovering from poison.hr has been treated by a verternary doctor.he is not eating anything.how to make him eat ?what are the foods came be given?

Answer:

You really need to directly treat the cause of the inappetance, which depends on the type of toxin, so I'm not going to be able to properly advise you without more information except to say that it is ideal to have that veterinarian recheck him, run bloodwork, give anti-nausea injections and fluids if needed, etc.
