    Arlo has been sneezing over the last few days. He has a wee bit of discharge around his little schnoz, but he is still eating & drinking & talking. (beep beep beep) I am worried about him. I cant take him to a vet because I still owe them & I'm too ashamed of that to face them. I am worried about my sweetie, he is so little. His poopies are normal. lso, I can feel his breastbone when I hold him. I have a Vicks VaporSoother & I'm wondering if I should stick him in the bathroom withh it for an hour or two to clear his little chest. Myy poor little guy! I'm very worried!

    Has he ever been wormed? That can cause him to lose weight. For the sneezing, it could be a respiratory infection. Tylan 50 from Tractor Supply or feed stores is a good medication.

    Neither of t he feed stores had Tylan 50 so I got him som vitamin/electrolyte solution. He is eating well but losing weight. there's not much of him to start with!

    i would worm him still with Wazine or Safeguard liquid goat wormer, to see if he stops losing weight. If you can't find Tylan, try getting some Equate brand Childrens Cold & Flu medicine(grape). Depending on his size 1/2 - 1cc 2 x daily. Is he a bantam or Standard?
