But he hasn't been on mino for 5 days, he's been on it for almost 10.
Also, since efforts to medicate have failed, including a second course of Maracyns, I am also considering that the cause of his bloating and pineconing is not a disease as originally suspected but in fact a tumor or internal growth. Is it possible for you to post a pic of him, Danifacetastic? I may be able to tell from a pic if it is a tumor or not.
If it is indeed a tumor, there is nothing you can do but ensure he is comfortable or humanely euthanize him. :(
In the meantime, Danifacetastic, if you want to continue to try and treat him, then look for Seachem Kanaplex. You will almost certainly need to order it online and you can get it here:
$5.95 for 5g (all you need) and shipping costs/time which varies depending on the method you choose.
If you do choose to pursue treatment and you order the Kanaplex, I again recommend taking him off the Maracyns and keeping him in only 3 tsps of epsom salt. His body WILL need a respite from the medications he has been on before he is treated with such a stronge med as Kanaplex.
I am also going to ask OFL what she thinks, as she has seen many cases over the years and may also be able to tell if this is dropsy or a tumor. I was and still am hoping very much it is not a tumor.
Hang in there.
