Try baby food, beef or chicken.  Your vet might be able to give her an appetite stimulant.

if your dogs going thru kidney failure,
The kidneys function is to filter out and excrete toxins from the body through the urine.  One of the first signs of kidney failure is an increase in thirst and urination.  This is why: A healthy kidney can concentrate toxins into a smaller amount of liquid to be urinated away.  When the kidneys are damaged and become less able to concentrate the urine, more fluid is used by the body.  As the kidneys become less efficient and the disease progresses, other signs of CRF begin to emerge such as weight loss, nausea, constipation, low energy / fatigue, and poor appetite.

your dogs dying,  how old is she?? shes most likly in pain, and if she cant keep down water, shes gonna dehydrate, have you talked to the vet about the options??? sometimes the best thing you  can do, is let them rest in piece, dont let her suffer, when the kidneys fail, so do other organs
