Hey everyone,

We took Biscuit in to the vet's the other day because he was wheezing again. The vet had a good listen to his chest and he has another URI. In fact, he was so chesty that she couldn't hear his heart.

This is his third URI and he is only 7 1/2 months old. She agreed with me that we need to do some tests as to why he keeps getting URIs (heart condition, residual lung infection etc.).

Because of the timing with appointments etc. we couldn't get him in for tests so he's on marbocyl for the next 10 days to clear up this URI, then we'll get him in for tests before xmas.

On the plus side, he's just over 1kg! So he's recovered from all his other illnesses pretty well :)

aaw i really hope biscuit is ok. you obviously care very much about your pets and I'm glad he is with you so you can give him the proper care he needs.

my david was poorly when i got him for a long time, and it can be very upsetting so stay positive and look after your little boy x
