Hey all,

My big male Baird's is in gurg mode and can't keep down anything but very small meal. It's been going on since July 1st when he gurged up one of two medium rats (total weight 170gms, his biggest meal). Since then if I feed him more than a couple fuzzy rats or small mice he'll gurge at least one. He does digest some and but sometimes there is partially digest content in his feces.

At first I thought he'd just get over it but now it's becoming very worrisome. Outwardly he appears healthy as ever but is much more laid back than usual.

Oh yeah, in late October he got a dose of flagyl but can't say if that helped at all.

Hoping for some good suggestions etc.

Thanks,
Brad
