    Castropony*- I am not able to take him to the vet until next Friday. If I do nothing, it will probably be to late.

    Can you call the vet and explain your financial situation and ask them if you can pay with a post dated check?

    The company listed on this paper should have some type of tubing that you could use for tube feeding:

    This is what I was referring to...


    I'm not going until this evening since it's not wise to take Lamont. In the meantime I was wondering. About my post earlier. Niacin or not, with water, ACV, and sugar? Since my syringe is only 1ml and he only takes. 50ml at a time, how often should I five him water? Crumbles and water are available to him, he just isn't intrested. Lastly... someone somewhere said I should wet his crumbles and force feed that... my syringe probably won't work. Do I just continue to use baby food?

    I don't know where the pad came from, but that company isn't in my area. I plan on calling some pharmacies to see if they sell urilogical catheters. I've got a listed things to get when I'm able to. Unfortunately not until sometime after 4 or 5pm. Given ample lighting, I am sure I'm not getting anything into his traech hole.
