Princie has been getting worse over the last two weeks. He stopped coming out at his regular time to go in his playball.
And when he did go in his ballie he wasn't using his legs right. For the last week he's given up on wanting to come out of his cage.
There is something wrong with his front right leg and he turns his head down and in the direction of the leg. It's like he had a stroke or something. He gets exhausted right away when he tries to do anything. He will stop and rest but his breathing is heavy and rapid at times. Princie over 42 months old so I don't know. It hurts to think that this may be his time. He comes out for food still but he can barely walk and he falls over alot, mostly in the direction of his bad side. It's so sad to watch him going through this. He's a tough little guy though. He's not giving up easily but I don't he has much longer to go. I'm wondering is there anything I can do to help him feel more comfortable? I took him out earlier and held him for about an hour petting him and letting him know I love him. He just slept in my arms. Oh well, I afraid there isn't much else I can do...
