Does anyone per chance know if buprenorphine can cause more urination or incontinence?
This morning I've chopped up pepper and lettuce really fine and she's been "nibbling" at it, so that's good.
I wish things would look up for her. She has URI, arthritis and reoccurring bladder issues too :/ She came from a very bad place when we adopted her 2 years ago and x-rays showed she must have had scurvy when growing up as all her bones look brittle and she has spurs on her joints. It's probably why her teeth are weak.
She's my favourite at work as she sounds like my Nibbler ;)
Any handy tricks? She does however eat pellets if I put them in her mouth, but it takes an age to get through the right amount. She has a firm hate for syringes now........
Think I preferred her doped up ;)
Also, if she doesn't have bloat problems, try coating the end of the syringe with a little tomato juice, or even rubbing a little banana on it. They tend to take it into their mouths easier if they get that flavor.
Ahhh that's the stuffs..
Remind you of anyone??
Tashab, I'll try the pellet dough if she gets annoyed with my 2ml syringe.
Sidera, I used a 1ml and that 20x or more each feed. I've switched to 2,5ml now so it's a little quicker :)
She also takes veg, pellets and hay as long as I shove it near her molars :) The vet was pleased with her progress, but told me to hold off on night feeds for now as long as I get the acquired amount in her during the day.
I did a 10,5 hr working day today so I happily take him up on that!

My girls hated C&C initially but I realized that they have to get use to the taste. Now they're much better. I feed it to them on and off, mixed with veg juice and their pellet mash just to get them used to the taste. Hopefully, it will be easier in the event that I do have to syringe feed.
She does look like Nibbler. Loved the last pic where she's on the alert for whatever the human might be up to next ... like another syringe feeding session?
