I would suggest you few things.

3. You can include Syp. Nutrolin B for his treatment.
2ml twice daily can be given.
Are you following?
4. If tiredness is increasing, or if urine output is decreased you will have to take him to the hospital.
It is ok. Have you followed?
Please continue the present treatment.

If fever is occurring, he will need antibiotics.
