the vet did say that they felt like he was sick before we got him and just didnt show any signs until after we brought him to our place. he is sequestered with his father ( who is showing no signs of illness). are you saying that after a certain amount of time of being anemic there really issnt anything we can do for him? or do you think we/our vet has been aggressive enough in treatment ?
I agree that it is possible that he may have been incubating a problem until he was stressed by moving to a different home, This can cause disease or a medical condition to flare up or to show up. It sounds like your vet has done a good job of treating the symptoms, however there other things I mentioned like the excenel and the oral binding boluses may help or at least may be something to try. THe boluses I have used are called intestisorb and are licensed for use in cattle, but have been used in sheep and goats. Since your vet has used some medicines, asking him about using these would be the next step to see if he feels they may help.
