Deworming a rescue is always a delicate situation. They can't really gain with a gut full of worms but deworming can cause problems too. ****ed if you do...****ed if you don't.

If he isn't in pain and just isn't eating, I would wait for the vet.

Rescues are challenging and this one sounds pretty bad. It is always hard to say but find comfort in two things. He can either get better or worse. Either way, he has known what it is like to be cared for -and- if it gets worse, you can give him the final gift of kindness and mercy.

Thank you for your kind words.
We don't want him to suffer and are trying to do the right thing for him. If we lose him at least we know that in his last days he was given food,shelter and much love and attention. He has been groomed everyday since we found him by my friends 8 yr old daughter. She sings to him and he seems to enjoy it.

The rescue lady said he is likely not yet 4 yrs old so maybe his youth will help.
BTW she also noticed that his face has scars and white hair exactly and completly where a halter goes. She thinks someone also left thehalter on to long in the past.
Poor little guy has had a terrible life............

Just makes me sick that he has had to suffer so....

If they are on a website you can copy and paste them, or otherwise when you go to the bottom to reply, instead of a quick reply, click the postreply button and there should be an option to manage attachments, there you can upload up to 10 pictures.

I wish you all the luck with the guy! And i'm glad he found someone to give him a fighting chance!

I catn figure out how to do pictures even with your instructions

Your best bet in this situation is to keep fighting for him. Don't give up on him, as others will tell you to, unless you know for certain, that he must go. As for the eating, Alfalfa is very rich, and I'm suprised she told you to give him that. However, as long as he is DRINKING and staying hydrated until the vet comes, he should be okay for the time being with whatever little amount he has eaten. Has he eaten any grass?

Upload your images to photo bucket or the like. Copy and paste their path.

When you post you will see the icon that looks like a mount scene with a stamp in the upper right corner in the second row of icons at the top of your message window. (It is 5 in from the right side.)

Click that, you will get a pop up.

Paste the path into the space available in the pop up.
