Fergus update

Post by Summerills » 10 Nov 2020, 16:16

It’s been a month or so since I last came on concerned that fergus was loosing rather than gaining weight since being with us.
It turns out all he wanted was for me to spend some money in him. The day after I paid for a worm testing kit to be sent through, he set about eating everything put in front of him and generally being much more active.
His worm test came back negative!

Anyway whilst we haven’t won the supplements battle with him yet but he is now weighing in at a hefty 37g having dropped down to 29g, so I’m starting to think about reducing what we give him (and trying to add in the supplements again)!

Thanks again for all the help and advice

Nic and Fergus

Oh wow, that is brilliant news -- and thanks so much for the update! It sounds like he has turned a corner and I hope he decides to behave himself and grow properly for you. :D

I agree Nic. It is great news and a huge weight off your mind.
Thanks for updating.
