    He's at the vet's right now getting some tests done. The vet thinks the reason he has trouble eating is because there's something wrong with his throat that's causing him to not be able to swallow properly. It's also caused him to lose quite a bit of weight (at least two pounds), I feel terrible for not noticing earlier :/

    Just asking for some vibes that they figure out what's wrong and he can feel better soon

    Well he's back home now.

    They did some x-rays to see if maybe it was some sort of obstruction or if they could find anything that might tell us something, but nothing obvious. They sent the x-rays off to the radiologist, so we should hear back by Monday if there is something. They also did a fecal to see if the weight loss could be from parasites, but he's good on that.

    Th next step would be to do a full blood panel and thyroid and see if anything pops up there. We have to schedule a follow up appointment once we hear back from the radiologist to do whatever needs to be done.

    So that's it, he's not out of the woods yet, but hopefully this'll give us some answers!
