After the vet visit, our overriding concern was for Bezukhov to 1) not lose more weight, & 2) put weight on.
Bezukhov not looking well
On our return, Bezukhov ate a reasonable amount in the Manor that evening. The next morning he barely touched his food & worryingly, neither did Phineas. I held up food to them but they just did not want it. I suspected that Phinny was now picking up on Bezukhov’s stress, hence his loss of appetite too. Though they had started eating seed in the new cage (as well as the Manor) the previous day, I made the executive decision to remove the new cage & reinstate the Ferplast (originally replaced due to the medication problems). I hoped the chopping & changing would not set them back further. I began the eating log primarily for Bezukhov but obviously keeping an eye on Phineas to note unusual behaviour.

Barely ate in the morning. Moved new cage out & Ferplast back around 13:30.
Tried to vomit but nothing came out.

Throughout the day I checked to see if he would eat vegetables. He had a tiny bit of carrot, some apple & broccoli. He did not want cucumber.
Threw up a bit of apple on window perch.
Another two vomiting episodes although nothing was thrown up. He attempted to carry on eating through the 2nd one.
Poop note: I only noticed 3 solid-ish poops from Bezukhov during the day but overnight poops 22nd/23rd were much better.
