Unhappy At my wits end

I just don't know what to do anymore.

Monkey has lost 35 grams since the dental work was done. He hardly eats anything and may have to have more dental work done.

I now have to force feed him and he'll have to be on medicine. I'm going to have them do a full body x-ray to make sure there's no underlying problems that could be causing his lack of appetite.

I feel horrible for him. I'm not ready to let him go and am going to do as much as I can to make sure whatever is causing this gets taken care of.

Can I tell you that this sucks in the worst possible way?

Monkey goes in on Wednesday for his x-ray, so I'll keep you updated on what is said!

Misty....the little one is doing just great! We had a problem with a hair ring (we got it off right away) and a little swelling, but that's gone down! I hope you don't mind, but I renamed him Chilli.

Very cute name! I don't mind at all!
Hope he's doing good for you!
He likes to "pleasure" himself, so we always tried to check him for rings really well.

Update

Ok everyone....here's the update on Monkey.

They did a full body x-ray, and they only found two things (minor) wrong with him.

One was a bit of spurring on the lower molars and a little bit of gas (the vet said it was nothing so terribly bad to cause concern). I am going to see if I can take a look at the x-rays myself.

They said force feed him CC and give him the antibiotics for another week and call back. If no improvement, they're going to run bloodwork and see if there's something going on with an internal organ. I hope it's not that. I really do.

So, there's the update!

Karen

I hope he starts gaining soon. Is he eating anything on his own? How is his demeanor?

He'll eat some of the pellets on his own, and he'll take a treat, but when it comes to medicine and being force fed, he's not happy at all. He's still friendly, but squawks a lot when it comes to getting him out of the cage!
