I took Sebastian to the vet today for a follow up. He no longer shows signs of an URI, but he may be prone to having respiratory problems. His eye problem is due to a blocked lacrimal duct. The vet prescribed some eye drops to give to hopefully loosen up some of the mucos and unclog it. I have to continue warm compressing it to keep it clean so no infection occurs. There maybe scar tissue in the lacrimal duct and if that's the case he'll probably always have this problem. They made sure I have some Critical Care at home incase I can't make it to the vet fast enough and need to hand feed one of my piggies. She noted that he had lost weight with a loss of appetite while on the Chloramphenicol. The vet tech gave him a few cuddles which he enjoyed.

He is happy to be back with Pierre and Pierre was happy to see him when we got back.
