thats ok SPRV. Just got back from the vet and seems Joey has the vet just as puzzled as he has me. Vet said they could keep him ovenight for me but that a vet only comes in evey 4 hours to check on them so I decided I would rather have him at home where I can sit up all night with him if needed. Vet has given him an injection for the pain and something to settle the stomach but seeing as they don't know what is wrong he is unsure if it will help. Joey seems comfortable for now snuggled up in my bed but is not happy that he can't have his friends to snuggle with.....looks like a long night, not that I would have got much sleep due to worrying.
