Dougal is fine- vet check up went well

Post by BugsBunny on Mon Feb 10, 2014 8:14 pm

Dougal got into the vets at 9:30 am today and she could not find anything wrong with him. She checked his teeth twice, listened for a good few mins to his gut and heart and looked in his ears, under chin, felt round his head and face, checked his fur and there was nothing obvious at all. She said he looks well and a good weight, his teeth are good and heart and gut very good too.

He is still very quiet though so I asked her if it could be what some of you guys said about shedding and stuff and she said it could be or it could be heating but I explained to her I do not put the heating on upstairs at all and it does go on and rarely it is low and for like 10-15 mins.

She said she is not too worrried as he is eating his hay and as long as he is eating that and drinking and going the toilet etc she is happy with him. I explained I check his poops etc and she was glad and said if any of those things chance then get hm back in. I also explained about his fgood and she agreed he could be off the pellet a bit cos of that. I said he is eating them, but he is picky with them and he does not scoff them all right away like he normally does, I got him a fresh smaller bag and he ate half and left half so I am also thinking he is full or tired or just a bit of shedding, he is not in a full malt as he had that not long ago and there's no fr clumps coming out of his back etc so it must be underneath. She said to keep and eye on him and if I am still concerned to get him back. She did not want to pump him with drugs or anything as she felt it would be unneccessary for him.

She also clipped his claws for me.

Let you know hoq he goes on this week and he is eating pellets, just slowerlike I said and he is eating his herbs but not all at once, with those he come back to them anyway through the evening.

My dad seems to think he is full too as when it was his bday he got a few things and 1 of them he finished yesterday was a hay mixed with stuff, hard roof off a small wooden hay rack type of thing , so maybe it is that. He is going toilet etc so I do not think we need to worry too much, I am just not used to him being so quiet.

Is my baby boy just growing up? , I hope he stays playful, he has such a funny and wonderful character and charm to him. Unless he is just tired lately and in a few days he is gonna be wild LaughingLaughing.

He is brilliant when he goes the vtes too, such a good little pacient, if onyl he could be for me LaughingLaughing, she was thurough anyway and good with him.

He does not look like he is matling though, but he msut be underneath maybe, it is strange, he is just being off and wierd for him.

I am happy that I got him checked out, cost us 27 or smething for that and nail clip but he is worht it and would pay any cost for him, lets hope ther is never any need for that though.

He seemed quiet again earlier this morning at 9am and he would not eat all his pellets again but at about 10:15 he eat them, very starange. He keeps scratchng a lot but he does not have fleas or anything, so it could be some nrew fur as his roots look dark. He is very shiny and much darker again now, when he was having his bad malt over winter he went lighter and was loosing tons of fur. I kept pulling loads out form him and brishing a load more out too and finding clumps all over the floor. Hee suddenly turned into the daft hyper fun bun I know once I refreshed all his hay and started cleaning. He loves me cleaning as he loves beating up the bin bag, kung fu bunny style LaughingLaughingLaughing it is well funny, thne he tried to get in it. He then duffed up the small dustpan and brush and as I was sweeping the big bits of hay form the carpter which is very hard to do, I do not know if anyone else has tried with a small dustpan and brush but it is freaking hard on carpet and have done this many times LaughingLaughingLaughing. He stood on it and was kicking the hay back off making it harder to get up LaughingLaughingLaughing. Then he did it again, then he flung the brush, then anythng I moved he was looking at me like that does not go there, what are you doing to my home humum. I lifted his castle to clean under it and anybody would think I had moved it and miles, I only lifted it, so he climbs under where I am lifting and starts nidging it, then when I closed one of his doors to clean under it he looked at me , nudged the door and looked at me again as if to say, why have you opened that LaughingLaughing. he was jumping about and beng a loon and he just cracks me up when cleaning around him and he does not make it easy but boy is it funny. Made me feel way betteer too, later in day he was running around like a look as I could hear him when on the lo and then he was binking around.

Thie evening he ate 3 pellets when I put them in his bunny tree then walked away so I fished them out and put them in his cardboard bowl and he ate them, yer yesterday when I put tem in that he flung it, pettlers went flying everywhere and he refused them. I really do not know whay is going on LaughingLaughingLaughing but I am just glad he is okay.
