Hello Ruth, I'm Dr. Deb.
I recently came online and see that your question about Timmy hasn't been answered. I'm so sorry that you've had to wait for a response,but if you still need assistance, I'd like to help if I can.
First, let me express my condolences to you and your dad on the loss of your beloved Charlie. I know this must have been a very heartbreaking decision for you both.
And, now this current situation with Timmy is obviously a very distressing as well.
I do have a few questions to ask first, if you don't mind:
1. Has Timmy been losing weight?
2. Any change in his drinking or urinating habits?
3. No vomiting or diarrhea?
4. Does he seem at all confused or is he still mentally alert and aware all of the time? 5. When he's inside your dad's flat, how does he behave? Is he anxious, excessively vocalizing, for example?
6. Has any recent blood work been done on him?
There may be a delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you and I may be offline at the time you respond. But I'll get back to you as soon as I can since I'm on the computer some part of every day.
Thanks for your patience. Deb
