Get Pet Questions Answered by Pet Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Can you tell me more about the passing of his cage mate? How old was he? What happened?Can you share pictures of what you're seeing?How long ago did this begin? When did the increased water consumption begin?Any changes his urinary output, such as blood?
Are you seeing any profuse grooming on either side with the fur loss or does it appear to be coming out on its own?
Given the fur loss on both sides of the body and high volume of water consumption, the risk of Cushing's disease, diabetes, kidney disease, etc. is quite high. I would arrange a visit with your vet to have Stephan Furry examined and treated. Your vet will want to start with diagnostics to determine the cause of the symptoms. Do you already have a vet you're seeing with your GPs or do you need help finding one?
Can you tell me the city and state where you reside?
It looks like you have quite a few options in your area, including a specialist:1) http://www.unionlakeveterinaryhospital.com/veterinary-services/pocket-pet-care.html2) http://www.animalhospitalmapleorchard.com3) https://www.vetclinicwestbloomfieldmi.com

Checking in. How is Stephen Furry?
Did you have success with the links above for vets near West Bloomfield, MI?
Are you able to afford the cost of euthanasia. This would be an ideal approach to the situation considering the unfortunate circumstances.
Following up, JACustomer. Did Stephen Furry make it through the evening?
I'm so very sorry to hear of his passing. My greatest condolences.
