and how and when did it happen? either during/after the dog food mistake, which i doubt, he would be much sicker. or it was when i put the food dish near the indoor covered litterbox. that also coincides with about how long he was sick. when we first discovered it, there were no signs of jaundice yet. it was in the three days until we could get him to the vet that it developed.
he's lost a lot of weight, but hasn't lost his robustness, which made it even harder to tell. it wasn't until i picked him up and noticed he was much lighter that i thought something might be wrong.
so it isn't like we neglected him in any way. i wish i could convince doc of it, but as i've said, since henry came home, doc has been coping with the illness much better. he doesn't like to be out of control. i know it kills him to have to go to work and leave me home. that is part of why i'm so stressed out that henry isn't keeping down anything i feed him. i want to do this right for henry and to prove to myself i can do it. i can do it. i am doing it.
time for another feeding. i'll keep him in his pen this evening and maybe he will stay calmer and not throw up.
