Experience: Hello, I am a small animal veterinarian and am happy to discuss any concerns & questions you have on any species.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:
How is he now?
Any blood or mucus in the diarrhea?
Is he eating for you?
Are his gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?
