Gilliam isn't doing too well. He's lost a lot of weight and his breathing is a bit labored. We went to the vet yesterday and he's on Baytril. Unfortunately, he doesn't want to take his meds. This is very unusual behavior for him as he usually loves the banana flavored medicine. I even mixed some blueberry syrup in. He'll take a lick or two, but that's it. Fortunately, he doesn't need to take much, but he just has no desire to eat much. Yesterday he chowed down on some berry crumble dog dessert and spaghetti. This morning, he didn't want spaghetti. He finally did eat some. He's 2 years and a month, so he is elderly, but he's not that old. I'm hoping he can stay with me a bit longer. Ancient rat Leon is fine as is Palin, Gilliam's remaining brother. The little boys, Josef and Snickers are fine as well. So, please send good healing thoughts for Gilliam. Thanks.
