Rudi, who is almost 18, is suddenly losing weight, not eating or drinking and moving very slowly. We took him to the vet yesterday, who took blood, said his heart is racing, and thinks he could have an overactive thyroid. He said Rudi is dehydrated, but would not hydrate him until the test results are in. Since yesterday, Rudi is hiding in the closet and sleeping...is there anything I can do for him? I feel so helpless!
Hopefully the test results will be in today so you can bring him back to the vet for treatment. He may start to feel a little better once he in rehydrated. vetcare
