i am using a springe to get the rehydration sachet into him and he is after getting a good bit in, the only thing is that he is trying to cough but can't cough fully like he is doing short coughs and this only started this evening? He is lying on my knee he is coming back to him self slowly!!!

What should i do??

Ring your vet and describe the cough to them, they will tell you whether or not to bring him back in, stick with it though, every little bit you get into him will do him good whether you have forced it into him or not, sometimes they get worse before they get better but soon bounce back!!

Another thought have a look at his gums, if they are whitish in colour then get on to the vet straight away as this is a sign of anemia!

I know how you feel right now, one of mine had to have a cabinet full of drugs for a horrendous eye ulcer tonight, stick with it girl, he'll be OK!! :lotsaluv: :flwr:

he has stopped the coughing!

Question he has not pee'd since earlier today good or bad?

9th July 2007, 09:03 PM
just as i posted that last comment he did a big pee so i am a bit happier now!!

9th July 2007, 09:58 PM
