We have been treating our Marco for a month and change for SBD. He has been in QT with treatment, daily water changes etc. and he never got fully rid of the bloating. Now the nail in the coffin.. dropsy. We check him daily when performing the water changes to make sure nothing else is going on and today it was there, the beginning signs of it.
I am sure the constipation and the inabilty to get everything out of his system brought this secondary condition and we fear that this will be the end for our poor Marco. I have literally spent hours each evening tending to him, getting the water perfect for his changes and doing the best I can and it just wasn't enough. Now we are faced with euthanasia which really really sucks but I don't want to see him suffer. The SBD was one thing but this is too much..
