Vet trip with Junior

Post by Thumper2001 on Thu Mar 17, 2016 10:13 pm

Junior went all funny again on Monday. Wouldn't eat. Sat hunched up in a corner.

I called the vet to see what they thought and when I was on the phone to them he keeled over Shocked so I flew round there with them.

I reckon it was *just* because he was in pain. I swear he kind of threw himself down. But when at the vet they gave me panacur, just in case.

I cannot get this stuff down them. I'm on my own here (and have been for 4 long weeks!) I cannot hold them down to get it in them. I've tried squirting it on shredded wheat. Nope No

My gut feeling is that they really don't need it, so I'm considering going against the vets advice and giving up with it.

Do you think this would be negligent of me???

Did he go limp? Like he'd fainted? If so that doesn't sound like a pain thing. Take note of his breathing.

No, he kinda threw himself down to his left hand side. Maybe "legs went from under him" is the wrong way to describe it.

It reminded me very much of what Molly did when her teeth were sore, she threw herself down on her side in the litter tray Hmmm

It's not easy to guess at what they are experiencing when they do that kind of thing.... unless it's obviously a flop. Henry has done that lots over the last couple of months (In and out of his tray) and I've come to look upon it as a sign of exhaustion with him, he shows no distress when he does it, just sheer weariness. Maybe Junior has a niggly tummy ache and it's tiring him out?

Sorry for not coming back to update Embarassed Life is a million miles an hour just now Sad

Junior is back to eating as normal. If I'm honest, I'm still not 100% happy with him but I have no real cause to take him back to the vet.

What bothers me is, after he has eaten, he sits - not quite hunched up - with his eyes closed half closed. But if I call him, he comes running straight away, bright as a button, like he's expecting more food.

This is something he has always done though, and something that has always bothered me a bit.

I'm keeping a very close eye on him.

I'm managing to get the panacur down them. But only on banana! He's going to be like a football by the time the 28 days are up No

The hunchy thing, are you sure he isn't cooking a cecal. Both of mine sit quite up but hunched for a while then after a while the head goes down and afterwards they are fine. I think it's the bun version of needing bathroom reading material.

Bathroom reading material... Like that. Think Henry does the Times crossword when he's waiting a C delivery!
Maybe Junior eats too fast and gets a bit uncomfortable?
