Question
Good Morning Donna,
Thanks for the reply u know last night Migi gave me such a hard time he didn't want to go to his pen so i left him outside & told him when he was ready to come inside but he refused and stayed out all the way till 3:00 am. in the morning. Hes still nibbling at his food, only drinks very little water i haven't seen him pee yet pooping very little dog like soft poop. I wormed him yesterday. This morning i took his temp it was 100.3 i gave him his probiotic paste. No vitamin b-complex today, no MOM just left a bucket of hay/snack foods he only nibbled on some raisins, hay. Both sides of his tummy looks sunken in. I really don't know whats going on with him this is the first time hes acting this way. The weather is very cloudy other than that everything seems fine no rain/wind. Thanks Donna

Luv,
Me & Migi

Answer
Would just wait and see - with his sensitive digestive track you may find that some days he is just off a bit - would  not overdose him on things - try and let nature take its course and let his system come back to normal by itself, unless there are certain symptoms that you find alarming and then giving remedies is a good idea.  Hope this helps - Donna
