[QUOTE=Purple-Hops;634406]I wonder if it could be his immune system reacting to all the travelling. One style cage, scents, water and sounds at school would be far different than that from a quiet relaxed home environment with different water and sounds. Could just be upsetting him so his immunity is down.. That's a long shot idea but I would not rule it out.
Right now Honey is living at school. He is not traveling at all. The problem is that he gets sick at home, but his health is much improved at school. I am no longer going to school, so I only see him from time to time, and must depend on the vet tech students for his care. Before bringing him to school, I was considering putting him to sleep because I believe he was suffering. I have tried the ez mats before, and they work well. I feel the risk that he might rip a toe nail is very small, and I would be willing to take that risk if the mats helps his condition. I do have an area for him to run and exercise in, but I want to clean it each day before I let him out. I can only let him out under supervision because of the other pets in the house. I believe that there is no perfect solution, I just have to do my best for him. I thought he might be allergic to the wall board used on the walls in the room, and the carpeting, so I have put in new sheet rock and new flooring. He has not been home to test it yet.
