Amethyst made some good points, and she has way more experience with chins than I do. The fact that his poops seem to be improving and he's starting to eat on his own are encouraging signs. Sometimes recovery can be more gradual than we anxious parents would like, but it sounds like he's starting to move in the right direction, at least!His poops are still soft but compared to yesterday they are better! The vets his normal one but I’m not sure she has a clue tbh haha
You said that he seems to eat and move around more when he's out of the cage, so my best advice would be to try to have him out (as long as you can supervise him) with a nice supply of hay and pellets and access to water to try to get him eating as much as possible and moving around. Physical activity can really help get that digestive tract moving. When my chin got a little gassy a couple weeks back, some gas drops and playpen time seemed to make all the difference and got her pooping normally pretty quick. Aside from that, I'd say just keep up with the meds the vet gave you, keep a close eye on him, and stay in contact with your vet.
It's good to hear that he seems to be showing some improvement! So long as he's showing improvement, I'd say you should stay the course for now! Perhaps your vet knows what she's doing after all.
