    Thank you everyone. It was definitely a stressful time. I took a holistic approach using homeopathic remedies along with conventional antibiotics, good nutrition, and small amounts of movement. I placed a heating pad on low in his cage to help regulate his body temperature. Kept pushing fluids (water, Pedialyte, apple juice) and offering foods every hour or two. Since he wouldn't eat solids at first I went back to formula and gave him Nutri-Cal. I alternated very small amounts of milk thistle and bentonite each day and gave him a calcium supplement and Acidophilus as well. Over time he started perking up and eating solids. He's not 100% yet, but is getting closer every day.

    Saving this in my notes! So Diggie's Friend will this possibly work for other small animals like a Sugar Glider/rats/hamsters also? Vet care would always be the first approach if possible but sometime even the Veterinarian's need a little friendly tip or two

    Small single gut mammals (non-ruminant), including humans, have been found to benefit from Milk thistle seed MTS extract. Milk Thistle seed, MTS extract lends protection from damage to the liver from mycotoxins consumed and inhaled. For ingestion or inhalation of mycotoxins (alfatoxins one form), MTS along with ATC are commonly used by veterinarians to counter toxins, even for the accidental ingestion of some human dose meds. (Always best to check with a veterinarian for specific antidotes for meds!)

    The most common source of food found to be contaminated with (Aspergillus flavus) toxic fungus, is corn; this fungus is commonly found in other grain sources. Other sources of mycotoxins commonly found in foods are found in the fridge, the optimum place to support food, 'science experiments'.

    Aspergillus flavus, which produces alfatoxins, is actually present most everywhere, as the spores travel in the air. The spores are generally are more concentrated indoors than outside in the open. This form of fungus is also found in the soil and in other mediums like molding hay; due to it's toxicity caution should be taken in disposing of it properly.

    Other sources of mycotoxins are commonly found in foods stored too long in the fridge, the primary incubator of molds, aka: 'science experiments'.

    "Oregon Wild Harvest" also carries a combination liquid extract of MTS and Dandelion root, both known to be effective liver detoxifiers. Having this liquid source on hand can save a life. (store in the fridge)

    MTS for prophylactic use towards preventing illnesses in small mammal pets from air and food exposure to toxins that aren't obviously contaminated with fungal/mold toxins, the powdered organic source from, "Dr. Forest" is the lowest and most easily reduced to a Teaspoon fraction measure. when supported by miniature teaspoon measuring spoons, to add directly to mix into a moist food. Organic baked Butternut squash would be my pick for the moist food to include as a staple in the diet daily.
