    In need of some more thoughts:

    Friar Tuck lost a bit more weight today, going from 1200 to 1186. He picked at hay, lettuce and corn husks today but didn't seem to actually eat them.

    Does Baytril diminish appetite so much because it causes nausea? That's why I'm curious about Reglan, it says it's for nausea during GI issues in the GI Stasis and stress sticky thread.

    Friar Tuck is (all things considering) doing good today!

    His eyes look good and his energy level is up a little today. He hasn't lost weight! If he did it was VERY little.

    He picked at his hay a little after his latest critical care feeding right now! Probably ate two strands, and then he again chewed on his woodblock a little.
