Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you and Boo today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 25 years experience and would be happy work with you but need a bit more information in order to better assist you if you don't mind.

Does the appetite pill help to encourage him to eat?

Is he vomiting?

Are you saying he is lethargic now that he is home?

Has your vet suggested any further testing?

Thanks and I will respond further after you reply. There may be a slight delay while I formulate and type a thorough response or I may be offline, but if so, I will respond as soon as I am able.
