Hey all, I'm sorry that ir has taken me so long to get back to the post and up date everyone. Iggy went back to the vet and he is going to continue the fluid treatments. He is taking his antibiotic everyother day and taking the fluid injections now once a week.
He is eating much better. In fact when I fed him this evening he attacked his food and then he went and took a nap.
I really appreciate all of the concern that everyone has shown for Myself and for Iggy.
Now that he is better we have to concentrate on getting his weight back up to where it needs to be.
Again, thanks to everyone out there who really cares for our little and not so little green babies. I will keep you posted in the comming weeks to let you all know how he is doing. Debbie and Iggy.

I just learned that Iggy had a health challenge! Brava that you are taking such wonderful care of him and I know he wiill feel like a KING in his new Home. God bless you, Jon and Iggy! Please send pics soon!
He is eating very well. He attacks his food when you feed him. lol ;D
He is gaining weight but has slowed down. He is getting collard greens turnip green and musterd green and greenbeans and butternut squash and snow peas and and and..... I think that is all but not too sure. OH and pasta for the fat.
He has started a very healthy shed and is very sweet now.
His attitude I think was because he was so sick and we did not know it.
I am going to purchase a baby scale so that we can weigh them weekly.
Important statement you made: Iggy's behavior was off because he was ill, in this case a systemic infection.
Very important that everyone monitor their Igs behavior regularly. It's fine to have a bad day here and there, but any prolonged behavior change is usually indicative of a health or psychological problem.
Fortunately, you caught Iggy's in time.
Be diligent and take note of any off-behavior. It could save an Igs life!
