I don't know about the vet care. A more experienced owner will be able to help with that. All I know is you have to make sure he is eating. Keep giving him chicken and syringe him water every couple of hours. You can also syringe him canned cat food. Just make sure there are no by-products or chemicals in the ingredients list. There is a list in the diet and nutrition section of this forum for dry food and most of those come canned as well. If you need to feed him baby food. Chicken is best make sure it is low in sodium. He can also have banana.

Never get him treated with Ivermectin again. I'd say that's what he's reacting from.

I hope all goes well.
