Jax08 Go get some slippery elm. Ruth is right, it works wonderfully

GoSailGo I was right it was the Clavaseptin that has been making him sick. Now I can't get in touch with the vet to find out if I can stop giving him this stuff altogether, since the cause of him being sick was never found in the first place. Called the vet office last night and they said call at 6am, now they're saying call at 10pm.... They must have been giving him injectable antibiotics when he was there because he was fine the night I brought him home and has been declining ever since. I missed a dose and now he's eating and not depressed.

BowWowMeow It's very inexpensive. You can find it at any health food store or grocery store with a good health food and supplement section. It will also help heal his gut. It's really good stuff. I use it too sometimes and it honestly saved my cat Cleo's life. She had very severe digestive problems that caused her to stop eating on a number of occasions. Slippery elm, probiotics and digestive enzymes helped her so much.

Thanks I will take a look at it. After the thousands I have spent on vet bills over the last few months I don't have much to play around with different things.

GoSailGo Could this Clavaseptin be to blame for it? The vet prescribed it for Navarro when I went to pick him up and told me to give it to him for 7 days. I have had to force feed it to him. We never knew what the cause of his puking was, but the side effects for this stuff I am just reading are nausea, diarrhea and loss of appetite...

BowWowMeow He is probably nauseous. Get slippery elm powder or capsules and either stick them down his throat or make a paste and give it to him about 20 minutes before you want him to eat. Then feed him something coated with very stinky stuff and see if that will get him started.

There is also this tincture I used to use for Cleo that had B vitamins in it and was an appetite stimulant. Let me see if I can find it.

Loneforce If he was eating at the vets, what were they feeding him? Maybe try that for a little until he is back to normal.

trcy it's not much, but maybe some broth in the water he drinks.

He won't starve. He may just know what's best for him right now.
I don't know if that will work. He won't even eat canned food of any kind.
