Well I'm sorry to report that Ollie has been quite ill. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] He began throwing up last nite and continued into the wee hours. I was just about to take him to the emergency vet when he finally relaxed and fell asleep. I stayed up all nite watching him to make sure he didn't take a turn for the worse. I just got back from the vet. He has coccidia...an intestinal parasite. Normally it causes diarrhea moreso than nausea or lack of appetite. He got a shot, a medication to take for 8 days and a special food. My poor little baby. He is so tiny and I hate seeing him sick.
Hopefully he will improve but if not he may have to be hospitalized. I am hopeful the meds will do the trick. He is certainly feeling better this morning after several hours of deep sleep.
So send some good thoughts Ollie's way...maybe it will help him get better sooner. In a few hours he can have a tablespoon of food.
