Ask a Vet and Get Your Veterinary Questions Answered.
Good Morning and welcome. I am Dr. Loretta , a licensed veterinarian and am happy to answer your question.
I have a few questions to help me better assist you.
Does Leo have diarrhea or loose stools?
Is he still eating well and active?
Has anything changed such as different food or any stress?
Sincerely, Dr. Loretta
YES IT WELL GO BACK AND FORTH. tHERFE IS NO STRESS THAT I CAN THINK OF. HE STOPED EATTING AND PLAYING YEASTERDAY AND HAS BEEN JUST LIEING UNDER MY BED WERE HE SLEEPS MOST NIGHT.
Fast Leo for 12-24 hrs which he is doing himself to allow the digestive tract to calm down and heal.
Give Leo Pepcid AC or Famotidine at 0.5 mg per pound every 8 hrs. That can be purchased over the counter at the pharmacy.
Give only small amounts of water during the fast or ice cubes
After the fast, feed rice and boiled chicken (2/1)
If he is feeling better, Charles, then wean him back to his food. If he is still having problems, then take him to your vet. I worry about the fact that he has not had vaccines and this could be caused by an infection that will require veterinary attention.
Does that make sense to you, Charles?
