Louis came to us on 2nd December weighing 300g, he was very cold, wet and very lethargic. He had a nasty cough and heavy lungworm burden, and was very dehydrated.
He was so poorly that we did not think he would make it through the night. We gave him sub-cut fluids to rehydrate him, and treated him for the lungworm. We gave him fennel tea to try to improve his hydration and appetite, and fed him on Hills a/d recovery food.
He lost weight every day for a week, before he started to get better, and put on weight. It was 3 weeks before he got back to his entry weight.
He is still quite poorly, but getting brighter, and putting on weight – he now weighs 308g, so we hope he will make a full recovery.
He loves his heated mat, which he got for xmas, and fleece pocket, which he can normally be found hiding in.
