Talked to the vet this afternoon, & they gave him insulin & his glucose level is dropping, it isn't down to "normal" but at least it's headed in the right direction. I asked if he would have to stay on insulin when he comes home, & she said that's what they are hoping to avoid.
She said yesterday he was kinda "punky", didn't eat very good, seemed lethargic, ran a temperature last night. But today he was eating & seemed brighter, so hopefully he's on the mend. His muzzle is still swollen, but she seemed to think it might be a little smaller.
Heard from a good friend that runs a donkey sanctuary in Colorado & she said that liver problems are quite common in donkeys. I guess because a lot of them are fed a diet that is too rich for a desert survival animal. I know Quilla was fed wrong for years. She said usually if the liver is really bad, they just die...........so I'm hoping since he's hanging in there, that he'll make it.
