No good news for today, dear Friends!
Our young friend was isolated a month ago because of sudden weight loss. Kala had a runny tummy and looked extremely depressed. At first, salmonella was diagnosed . Treatment started immediately and we all were convinced Kala would be better soon.
However, Kala’s health didn’t improve.Therefore more health checks took place: this time intestinal infection was found and new treatment started. But Kala has become stubborn: he suddenly refused to take in all medication and has turned into a fussy eater. Things he loved to eat one day were totally rejected the other day.
Today, one month later, Kala has lost more weight. He still doesn’t want to eat much but likes to drink water. His stools are still the same…We try to stay with him, to talk to him, to groom him… he really loves to be hugged and can stay for hours in our arms…
We are very worried about him. We are struggling every day to give him the best but it is as if he doesn’t care about any thing, as if he were depressed… I wish I could let one of his chimp friends come and stay with him, but this isn’t possible since we don’t know what Kala is suffering of…
Before I end, I wish to thank Fabienne, who is taking good care of Kala and who always try to stimulate him with new enrichment! Many thanks also to Papa Augustin and Maman Angeline whose patience helps us a lot as they manage to have Kala taking his medication! Thanks also to J.A.C.K. vet Jean Claude who does his best to assist and help whenever he can! And of course, I won’t forget PASA vets Christelle & Carmen who have always been of great advice!
