"it could never digest because of your temperature being too cool, and/or the meals too large to be digested within those given temps. This can also happen from the water being fouled as well."

I only give them purified water, this guy has never regurged or defecated in it and his water bowl is brand new, so that part should be fine.

Ambient temperature is 80-85 during the day, 70-75 at night. When it gets down in the 70's I've been giving him a light to make up for it (he doesn't spend any time over the UTH, and I had the same thought as you: that might make him too cool for digestion). This is also why I've gone all the way down to Hopper mice, and they've been thrown up just the same.

He spends all of his time in the cool side hide, and I just went and bought a temp. probe at PetSmart (his stick on temp. thing is on the glass obviously): right now it's 81 in there. He's not getting the light tonight.

Nonetheless I've made a vet appointment for tomorrow, and will bring your medication recommendation with me. If the Dr. says anything else, I'll wait on treatment until I've run it by you.
