DOn\'t know what else to tell you other than take him to the vet. There\'s only so much we can help you with here. Sounds to me like they\'re very sick though and need medicine. Sometimes there\'s just no way around a vet.

Maybe someone will respond with another suggestion but all I can say is he needs to go to the vet :/

go to a vet or they will die. i just spent $80 (and that was the cheapest way to go!) on one 5 month old RES. it\'s very expensive, but it all depends on if you can sit there and watch them die or give in and pay the money to get them \"fixed\". good luck!

take them to a vet..if u couldn\'t afford it then at least take one and if they have the same case then treat both of them the same..that\'s stupid i know but they have to see a vet ASAP
