I will look into that medication, Fortekor, I believe you spelled it, because it sounds like it might be a good thing.
The thing that is good right now is that she loves all of the medications she takes. She adores benebac, and metacam, and even the baby's gas medication. It is Walmart's brand, equate, and she loves the taste, for any of you that might need a tasty gas medication for piggies. She also loves to chew on the syringes.
She has been pulling her leg under her and using it more, which I am proud to see.
Once again, Silky and I both thank you for everything!

Pinta had luck with a pig with kidney failure, using daily subcutaneous fluids and I believe aluminum dioxide. Do a search for posts by pinta about Dom.

If you decide to feed her Critical Care it might help to run the dry CC through a blender. Then when you mix it with water it's much smoother.
My thoughts and prayers will be with you all.
- You can quote me
Benazepril is a common human heart medication (ACE inhibitor). Any human or veterinary compounding pharmacy can mix it up for you easily and quickly, if your vet will call it in. Get a light banana flavor, and she should love it.
If she needs it, it will help her quickly and possibly dramatically.
Where's the treats? Is the silver flashing thing a treat?
Silky's weight was up to 752g, which is better than before. It could be extra water and stuff, but still, it sounds good. I've been feeding her more, she can use it! She had had flakes around one eye, so I was worried, but he said her eyes looked great, he thought maybe she needed more C in her diet, he examined a piece of flake and saw nothing there. I've noticed her leg is better to the point that she can sit back and wash herself again, and her eyes are clean again.
She has some skin flakes, he did take a flake and hair sample, and saw nothing, but we treated both piggies with revolution again, just in case. They've never had critters, but it never hurts to be sure.
We discussed the medication for her heart and kidneys, and after some discussion, thought it might be best not to try it. Her heart beat was twice as fast as Moose's. Moose's was much louder. Moose has gone from 1166g to 1312g. Moose is getting pudgy. Moose takes after his Mom.
I thought I would update you all. I will be a sad piggie mom tomorrow night, because I will be leaving them again, and this time they can't come with me. But I know they will be in good hands. But I'm going to miss them!
