Molly and Junior - a success story

Post by Thumper2001 on Sun Jul 29, 2018 10:25 pm

After a battle that has gone on for a year and more I have finally got Molly and Juniorís cecal problem under control.
I havenít seen a dirty butt for a good few weeks Happy Dance

I basically cut out everything! Took them right back to hay and pellets. But before I didnít this I got them off the burgess excel and on to science selective mature.
I then slowly re introduced herbs.
I also have them on the science selective joint support treats.

Iím now in a strange territory where I want to start reintroducing a few things to see what happens. On one hand I donít want to because this has been a long battle. But on the other hand I feel bad for them because they liked their treats, and I liked giving them something nice now and again.

Believe it or not, I think the fibafirst was a contributor to the problem. But they love them Crying or Very sad

What would you guys do? Carry on as is or give in and let them have a treat?

Well done. Don't undo the good work... remember what a struggle it was and keep the faith. A treat is only a treat to you... to them it is an open gate to upset tums and discomfort.
NEVER FORGET WHY YOU DID IT AND HOW LONG IT TOOK!

I wish I could sort Reboot. It's back at the vet on Tues. morning and I've a bad feeling. I've had this bad feeling for a long time now and he's given me no sign that it's unfounded.

I wouldnt give them food treats especially if it upsetting their tums.
Why not make getting there herbs fun for a treat instead ( dont know how you normally give them)
Hanging it on a rope a make an old tray full hay and hid the herbs in it so the have to forage, i made thundercracker up and old litter tray of grass for his pen.

You could offer hay treats like cookies or loops?

I am so pleased to hear this love and no more mucky botties are around. I must admit Holly has been having a few of those so I too have cut down on her food. Her salad portion is small and the rest of the time she eats the few pellets I put in her bowl. Thankfully she has always been a good hay eater.

Fab news!

I'm the same with our boys, all they get is science selective and hay. Occasionally they get a small (very small) amount of fresh forage. I feel bad for MJ because he's never had any issues but just don't want to risk Philip ending up with a mucky bum again!

Both the piggies and Holly get a small amount of salad each day and I have cut down on it quite a lot. The piggies' bottoms are both nice and clean but I have to keep checking Holly's. Maybe now I have cut down ( I didn't overfeed before) she will have a nice clean bottie again. Very Happy
