UPDATE: We just returned from the vet a few minutes ago. Joey is very anemic, dehydrated & has some jaundice. The vet said it could be (insert big word here) a blood parasite, which is treatable or something else (didn't say what) that isn't. He gave him an antibiotic shot & fluids, along with a dose of liquid vitamins. He sent home the vitamins & some antibiotic capsules & said hopefully this will work. I waited until he was done before I told him I couldn't pay him today, so he let me charge it. Please pray it's the blood parasite & that the antibiotics knock it out so that Joey can get well. Thank you all.
Joey took a bad turn last night & is barely hanging on. I called the vet this morning & he was going out on an emergency call & would let me know when he was back in the office, but that it would be around noon. I just got a call & he's pushed it to 1:15. Please pray that Joey can hold on & that he can be healed from whatever is making him sick.
