> i'm sure teddy bear will be ok. i think it's the
stress. pedialyte is great and maybe you want to mix
some baby chicken food with it. my kids (fuzzys) get
it whenever something isn't quite right. right now my
barney has insulinoma and i give him chicken broth
and the baby food. he lives for his treat. its so
funny to see him on the rug in my kitchen waiting for
it. good luck
