all for too long.....only drinking water.
We have looked in his mouth and it seems that
his teeth are going frot and maybe has a little abscess.
I googled it and it seems like this does happen
and then because they are not eating they die.
He is an old boy......nearly nine years old.
I do not want him to suffer. Can anyone suggest
what I can do?????????
