    Default Bertie off his food

    Bertie stopped eating this morning. Had a couple of nibbles about 8.30am then nothing. He has been to the vet for gut stimulant. I have been back to the vet myself to buy metacam. The vet agrees with me that his problem is moult related. Please send prayers / vibes for my boy. I want my furry hoover back!

    Thanks both. It seems to be taking longer than usual for meds to kick in.

    Should I try to give Critical Care if he doesn't eat soon? He dislikes handling and has already been lifted a few times today.

    Have they checked his blood glucose? And done an xray? Or ruled out a blockage? I wouldn't force feed if they haven't ruled a blockage out personally.

    Could you call your vets if you're unsure and check, they should be able to advise based on what they checked etc.
