Nicky became listless over a few days, then started having loose stools. We took him to our vet on the 3rd day after his 1st loose stool. The vet tried an antobiotic & fecal tests. Nicky eventually had other drugs, lab, & a sonogram. He is finally much better. We have used our ASPCA before, & they have always been caring & helpful. I think Nicky has better insurance then we do.
