She is on flagyl and albon, getting CC mixed with pedialyte and poop soup...what else can I do???
I love sitting and watching tv whith her...I twist her long locks of hair while she snuggles under me neck...I will miss that...my other 2 are short haired.
I just called the vet and he is going to refill her AB's and go another week.
I just went to the fridge and she came running out of her pigloo wheeking for veggies...guess that is a good sign...when no veggies appeared she went back in though...
Tonight she chased Cass around the cage and did one popcorn...
I am not giving up...just down in the dumps today...my daughter got sick, I gave my son a black eye when he ran up behind me while I was vacuuming (I was on the back motion and ran it right into his eye and laid him out on the floor), our new house leaks (1st rain today) and my dogs had a fight and I got bit breaking it up...it's been a day for sure!
- For the Love of Pigs
My daughter says she usually has 2 days of soft or mushy poops, then a day of formed ones. It varies. But in the last 3 weeks she's done this thing of arching her back and making a pain sound some of the time when she poops on her bad days. She has had an xray & the vet didn't see any stones or anything else wrong. I know your little girl doesn't do this.
I don't have an answer for the flagyl question. I don't make changes without consulting the vet. In fact Ellie seemed worse after she started the Bactrim & we called the vet and she wanted her to stay on it.
In general, stopping an antibiotic before you or the pig has taken the full course of treatment leads to antibiotic resistant bacteria - super bugs. They're the ones that have survived a few days of medicine and are the stronger ones. Then you have the stronger bacteria left to multiply.
I am looking for some hope I guess...
I still plan to give cc every 6 hours...she is eating still but I think she needs the boost due to the poop issue
Fecal came up neg again (excpet for protazoa that should be in there)...but no parasites
Poops are not quite as alarming as I thought they were.
She is a bit underweight so he wants me to give her a bit of alfalfa for a couple of days (warned about stones) and keep on CC
No lumps, masses or stones apparant...but after the check of her abdomen she had a bit of discharge from her vaginal area.
So, we are now on baytril (which scares me to death due to all I have read) and if she does not improve we may be looking at a spay.
