I'm out of ideas! Any help?
Right, I'm completely out of ideas on this one. I'm welcome to suggestions! For a few months now, Raisin has seemed a little bit down. I first thought that this was due to them being a dark corner in our previously cold, damp house which we've now moved out of. He's perked up a bit but still doesn't quite seem himself. And he seems to have lost a bit of weight.
A few weeks ago he has a weepy eye and i noticed his bottom teeth were overgrown (him and rum have dental problems). he's been to the vet and been checked over, had his teeth trimmed back twice now, and the eye is looking better, more weepy in the evening, fine in the mornings. So i'm happy this isn't a problem.
He has been eating fine, drinking fine, playing in his wheel lots as normal, faeces are fine, accepting treats with serious enthusiasm. I've checked him over for cuts/lumps/bumps etc, nothing. he even came out and snuggled on my lap yesterday! My usual source of degu illnesses has a few symptoms, but they are combined with others he doesn't have!!
So, he seems okay healthwise to me, but he's lost weight and seems a bit down. Any ideas????
