Sick Pigmy

gishparJanuary 12, 2013

I bought a month old baby pygmy. He was fine Thursday when I brought him home. Today is Saturday and he seems very weak and lifeless but still crying and breathing. I have tried giving him Ultra start Milk Replacer. I have given him so Gatorade. I don't know what else to do. Is it because he is homesick? Thank you for your help.

Does he have a runny stool?

If not-I would switch to whole vit d milk (the stuff you buy from the store) and or pedialite-this will help balance electrolytes.

Check chest and makes sure its clear.

He may also be in shock-keep warm and quiet. Try to make bottles of Pedialyte to keep him hydrated.

Hope this helps
