Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

I am so sorry to hear about Bandit's condition and I am very sorry that it has taken so long to answer your question. I am hoping that he feeling a bit better now. I worry very much that he may be suffering from Liver disease because of teh symptoms that you describe. This could also be due to some form of toxin that he may have ingested. If he is still lethargic and unstable, it is important that you take him to your vet for testing. It is hard to give you any further recommendations without more information on what may be causing these odd symptoms all of a sudden.

If this continues or gets worse, take your guy to teh ER vet for testing so that he can get the treatment he needs to get past this.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.
