We were told about the silly hats when we came here but never expected to look this silly!

Yesterday the 15th was our first birthday but Mum and Dad celebrated today as they wanted the 15th dedicated to Jessie passing.

Don't we look silly? At least the gifts, treats and cuddles made up for a little of the humilation of wearing those hats. If we have to wear them next year we'll see our lawyers!

Happy first Birthday to us-Jaffa, Jill and Jupiter(in order of picture.)

Thanks for the replies C. Cole-Chakotay and GrannyJu1. Thank-you for the compliments. Can you believe we got spolit again on what Mum and Dad call Christmas. Want to call it the good life? It's no wonder we have chubby bellies though we tell Mum and Dad we're big boned.

Jupiter for the last week has been sneezing so when Jasmine, Jan and Joy went to the vet on Monday we also took Jupiter.

Carol found a nasty hay seed in her eye BUT she kept sneezing, so today when my husband did her eye with the ear and eye ointment he got a nasty hay seed from her nose.

BUT she's still sneezing, then you would NOT believe it, when going to change bedding and feed Jupiter and Jill, Jill had a grass seed in her eye.

Now on advise from Talishan we give the girls Meadow and Oaten hay BUT how can we stop the girls from getting seeds in their eyes? Short of buying them little googles? And their blankets are just covered in seeds.

Hay seeds is why we stopped giving them Meadow hay, any advice much appreciated!

Are there lots of seed heads? Could you remove them easily? Beat the seed heads out of the hay?

Here in the states, you could (often) order third cut timothy from KMS Hayloft. I think it has very few to no seed heads (correct me if I'm wrong, people).

My only thought would be to pick as many seed heads out of the hay as possible before giving it to them.

Damned if you do and damned if you don't, I swear. They have to have the hay. I wish you didn't have this much trouble with it. :-(

Beat the seed heads out of the hay?
I will try this method and see how we go. Both Jill and Jupiter are going to the vet Friday to have eyes checked and Jupiter's nostril checked.

Look at what our slaves did us yet again this year. This fashion trend will never take off. We look like dills. It was our 2nd birth on the 16th of this month and look at what we had to wear! At least we got spoilt rotten on our special day. Just get rid of these silly hats GRRRRRR!

It's enough to make a piggy cry and go on the wagon and no more carrot juices. (Just kidding).

I have just cut/trimmed Jan and Jupiter's toe nails and found Jupiter to be having trouble breathing. Her mouth is open, rapid heart rate. She also feels floppy at times.

When we did bedding change earlier and feed her and her sister Jill both were Okay. We are scared to handle her as flashes to how we lost Jemma have come flooding back.

Can anyone suggest what is going on and how we can treat it. She and her sisters turned 2 last month.

We did get hay Oaten and Meadow from different places than usual. Could this have something to do with it?

It is not quite 1.00am here and vet will open in 7 and a half hours. Please if you can help much appreciated.

Thanks GrannyJu1. It is exactly the same as Jemma well the symptoms are anyways. If we handle Jupiter she gets stressed and starts gasping for air.

Jupiter is not eating so tried to hand feed her without stressing her. NO such luck. She started to gasp for air and jerk bodywise and rapid heart beat. I only got 2 syringes in not even sure if she swallowed them.

It is now less than 2 hours till vets open but then what? They had NO idea what was wrong with Jemma and after she had passed I wanted an autopsy done they said THAT WILL ONLY TELL YOU WHAT SHE DIED OFF. Well gee that's what I wanted. That mistake could cost me Jupiter but who thought history would repeat it's self? Jupiter is the black piggy.

Are they all siblings? This could be a heart condition. Heart conditions are more common that most people believe. They can go on heart meds to increase their longevity and comfort. You may want to read up on the medical page about this.

I wonder about a heart condition too. I am so sorry she is having these problems.

Thanks for the replies WICharlie and Lynx. Yes they are all siblings but on Jupiter is having problems.

Went to the vet and saw a different vet who was really nice. She saw Jupiter's rapid heart rate, and heard noise in the chest.

As for heart meds even if a piggy was on death's door a vet would not prescribe them!

Jupiter is on Baytril for two days-she got injection at vet. we have to touch base with vet on Friday. She said Jupiter may have infection but that's not to say she might not have an underlying problem.

At least Jupiter is a little better from this morning, I can tell you one thing for sure-I will NEVER cut her claws again. Vet can do it!

Vet warned me about stressing her too much to the point where she can't breathe. Didn't need that warning as that is how we lost Jemma and a rabbit and one of our dogs.

Will keep you posted, Jupiter is still not eating by herself and I know she must be hand fed but am afraid of stressing her out to where we lose her!

This person is from Sydney. Maybe your vet can contact their vet? They posted recently:
