Did he pass any stool with the enema?
Did the Vet give you an idea of what he felt mey be happening?
Is Spiro taking the food willingly?
At this point we need to continue the soaks which are very important. You can continue the prunes. The Vet may have to prescribe Lactulose which we give for problems like this or they may give Paraffin which is also used. The massages will also help. Sometimes the prunes are not quite strong enough. The under the tank heat on the abdomen should help too. Joan
I am so happy to hear that Spiro went on his own! That is great news! I would like to eventually start him on soft bodied feeders. We can discuss that once we know he is back on track and ready to eat. The site gets quirky sometimes and I am here for you and Spiro. Joan
