Gina, Take a breath and then seriously consider taking Whisper to another vet, this vet doesn't seem to have a clue. Do you have Whispers blood work results, if so can you post his HCT, RBC, HGB? Has his teeth been checked, drooling can mean bad teeth, stomach upset among other things?

You should be able to get copies of the tests to take to any new vet or have the old vet transfer them, my guess is the old vet will want to charge a fee to do this, which is acceptable as long as it isn't ridiculous. Another thing to think about, is that if you switch vets now, the new vet

Hi Gina, I am sorry that Whisper is going through what he is, poor baby. But you have found a good place for info. and encouragement. I have a few questions for you: is Whisper eating at all? If not, you have to get him to eat, even if you have to syringe feed him chicken baby food
