Diarrhea and vomiting.  One stayed overnight at the vet getting I.V.
fluids.  He wouldn't eat or drink at all.  The other is not so bad, so far.

Normally they do get boiled chicken and rice with their food.  Not that
they're pampered or anything.  We have noticed that the stools get messy if
we run out of rice.
