Henry, heart condition starting to show

Post by woodwench on Sat May 21, 2016 6:02 pm

He's been really enjoying the wild forage over the last month and I allowed myself to think it was because he was eating all the extra wild goodies that he was consuming few pellets and less hay. But over the last week he has eaten hardly any SS4+ and is now barely touching the Protexin Profibre which he loved. He is uninterested in hay as well, only nibbling when I offer it. Worse is he's losing interest in wild forage, it lasts him for eight hours or more now. Once it was gone in under two.
It's not his teeth.
I have heard him breathing when eating for a while now and he has been spreading the eating of food over longer times, also I've heard him sniffing at his food ... like you hear a dog sniff, not silently like rabbits normally do. Today I saw him breathing through his mouth! He was lying on his side and, true, he didn't open his mouth wide, gasping, but he was opening it a little with each breath.
All this points to further deterioration in his heart condition.
It's now nearly three months since the diagnosis and I keep remembering Alex said (and Richard Saunders) it could be weeks or months .....
