    Okay not great news but not the worst... He shed earlier this week ate it and then threw it up but that’s the only instance where he has thrown up he’s to the point now where we assist feed him because of his loss of interest in food and his diarrhea is now off and on but when it occurs it’s not as bad as before he has gotten a little skinnier but it’s not horrible yet (hopefully it won’t become horrible) but it’s hard to tell if he’s making progress at all it feels as if we take 1 step forward then 2 steps back.

    A vet can run a fecal and prescribe medicine for parasites if necessary. Parasites can be hard on your leo. He's family.

    If he has parasites, only medicine will cure him.

    So itís gotten to the point where I am now having to force feed him to keep him going. Heís gotten skinnier but his poops keep slowly improving. I really donít know what to do Iím coming into some not completely stable financial ground and I cannot take him to the vet and not only that the closest one is 2 hours away. The only activity he takes is to go sit out infront of his water dish but never drinks. Any home tips I can take to try to get his appetite back and get him to put on weight again? Really need the help.

    I think that you could take a fecal sample to any local vet to check for parasites; it would be cheaper than taking him in, and if it is parasites, perhaps that vet could confer with an exotics vet to check on antibiotics dosage. If it's parasites, there is nothing you can do besides medicine to make him well. They won't go away on their own.
