At this point it's an hour by hour struggle to keep him alive. He's had one feeding of fluids and will continue to receive them every four hours. The first one was straight Lactated Ringers, the second one in a few minutes will have 5% dextrose added. Then, if he's still alive I'll add some AD critical care food to the fluids. It's a thick pudding consistency and will be diluted somewhat so it will go through the stomach tube.
Keep your fingers crossed and your good thoughts on this very sick little baby. Thank you.
SAD NOTE: Baby DOVE died last night. His body will be sent to the WY State Vet Lab for an autopsy and testing for WNV.
