A while ago, Mikey and I made yet another tip to the vet when he again was not eating (or at least not when I was looking) and his stools were somewhat splatty; they also had a few traces of blood. Uh oh!
During the course of the visit, the vet took blood and urine samples. The good news is both tests had positive results, and he had gained a few ounces!
However, since at that time Mikey was experiencing the diarrhea, the vet suggested we try him on some pro-biotics for a time to help to settle things down. She prescribed Purina FortiFlora, and said you just “sprinkle it on the food”. She added that if his brothers would happen to get that food it won’t hurt them.
