When I woke up to feed veggies and tidy the cages, I noticed in Barnaby and Ernie's cage there was one set of regular poops and one set of small ones.
So I noticed right away that Barnaby had a round tummy, so I took him out and his tummy was kind of firm and you could even notice gas in it. I swear I could see movement.
I popped him on my lap and he stretched out and man was he fluffing.
He is eating, drinking and moving around, I just needed to give him a little something more to get this back on track.
I am keeping a very close eye on him and have given him a dose of the medication and will again later.
Why are veggies bad? Too gassy?
He is eating hay like normal so I am glad.
I don't have a vibrating pillow but while he was on my lap I was shaking my leg slightly to rock him a bit and he was very stinky.
When should I get concerned? If he is still a bit gassy tonight? Or how long does it usually take for it to go away?
I have given it to him twice today and wonder if I should again before bed or not?
And do I give him some more tomorrow?
There are tons of poops in the cage now, all regular sized.
Barnaby has been eating hay and drinking water.
His tummy looks a lot smaller and he seems much more comfortable than he did during the day.
So any advice of how many more times I should give him the simethicone, would be great.
Most of today he was snacking and sleeping, but now he is up and moving all around, drinking tons and eating lots of hay.
What a relief :)
