My Coton is 8 mths. He threw up week ago once. Then he started having diarrhea. He was eating some and drinking. I came in Tues. He was sitting with his head hanging and felt hot. I took him to the vet. His temp was105.3. He wasn't dehydrated. They did subcutaneous fluids. Then had to do fluids in the vein to get it down. Did again next morning when temp was103.5. Since he chews things, they did a xray to see if there was a partial obstruction. Showed maybe coton in is intestines coming out. His poop is normal now, no temp, Still just sits around lethargic. I've noticed a slight wheezing every so often. He also grunts if I pick him up with my hand under his chest. Vet couldn't say why his temp had gone up or seem to find anything wrong. Still worries me because he is usually so active.
