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, but can you tell me: How long has he been losing weight?Is he passing diarrhea?Does he drink or pass more urine then usual?When was he last treated for worms?Are his gums pink or pale/white?

Hi again,I am glad that you have had him seen if his gums were pale (since that is suggestive of anemia that we can see with tick borne disease). Since we weren't able to help you when you posted your question, I will now send it back to customer service.Best wishes to you both,Dr. .
