When we got back from our vacation we gave Piglet a cagemate. She began to move around more, and now you wouldn't even know she had ever had trouble walking.
However, she must still have some nerve damage. She must dribble urine or something, because she's always wet and gets that scale on her back legs. I was cleaning her off and massaging some coconut oil into the area yesterday and she had a seizure.
She's had seizure-like episodes when she first came here. It seems to happen when she's being handled and is very upset.
I don't bathe her or use the Desitin as much as I'd like, because of the seizures. I'm trying to do it every few days.
I think I'll take her back to the vet, and get a culture to find out exactly what's going on.

Heaven knows Piglet has every reason from her past environment to react this way.
It's very possible that she has alot of underlying problems - that is, if she was handled as badly as "The Thing" was.
Tater's seizures look very, very similar to Piglet's. I don't think Piglet's are mite related, but you never know. Piglet had another seizure today while I was trying to clean off some of the gunk around her private area.
I haven't had a chance to take her to the vet, with all the abscessed males I've been dealing with. I hate to leave her all gunky and smelly, but I also hate the seizures.
I wonder if bedding her on fleece would make her less gunky?
