Aww, poor sweetie. What meds is Tig getting at this point? How much food, and how often?

Do you have a heating pad or hot water bottle? I would make sure to wrap it in several layers of towel, and in the case of a heating pad, only put it on the lowest setting, and only use it if you're home and can monitor Tig. A large sock filled with uncooked rice, warmed up in the microwave for 20-30 seconds (depending on the amount of rice) can also be a nice source of heat. Just make sure whichever method you use that Tig doesn't get too hot, and that he can move away from it if he wanted too.

Don't hesitate to call the vet again if you're concerned. They might have some ideas, (for instance, maybe a dose adjustment of a med that Tig is on).
