I was hoping to hear right back from you so we could talk about Frankie's diarrhea.

The chin sore is easy to fix. Apply some raw honey 3 times a day. It is an amazing healing agent. You can get it in a health food store. It is safe if he licks it.

The diarrhea is most likely caused by a GI upset. Get a few jars of chicken or turkey baby food with no onion or garlic. Add one tablespoon of rice cereal or boiled white rice to each jar. Feed only this or boiled chicken till his stool is normal for 48 hours

Please let me know how Frankie is doing.
