We have a young B&W Columbian that has very suddenly become visibly ill. He is rolling his head spasticly and seems to have very limited use of his front legs and feet. He's repeatedly sticking his tongue out in a very abnormal way. Our exotic vet is closed for the day and I'm not expecting him to live through the night which is breaking our hearts.

I'm not expecting a miracle cure, but if anyone has any suggestions please don't hesitate. I'm more curious if this sounds like anything any of you have seen. I'm hoping that we can learn from whatever mistake we must have made

He has constant fresh water, eats 2-3 times a week rotating between pinkies and lightly cooked ground turkey with a broad vitamin supplement that we cook into it at the proportions the label suggests.

Any thoughts would be helpful.
Thank you,
Kerry
