meanie--quick question--how did you know sparky was out of gi stasis??
i have been handfeeding richie for a month now and i still every once in a while there will be a little of the mucuousy gas bubble that comes out on his poop. he is on still in the cisapride 3 times a day, he is also on tramadol 2 x a day & metacam 1 x a day.
i just went out & got him the gas drops to see if that would help.
his initial x rays at the end of may looked just like sparkys with all the gas, so i just want to make sure that i am doing the right thing. you can pm me if you want.

Thank you for showing us all what it can take to help a chin recover from this. It is a real eyeopener and you are an angel for going through it with him.

What an amazing story. It's heart wrenching to see that little guy looking like that in those pictures. It's so amazing what you did for him and saving his life. He's one lucky little chin!!
