I'm sorry to keep pestering!
I gave our bloaty Tina 1 10mg tablet of crushed Buscopan in 1ml of water this morning. How often should Buscopan be used?
Thanks!

I have given it every 8 hours. Not used it in a while though. Is your vet OK with you using it?

What makes you think she is bloated? Is her tummy hollow?

Yup. Very! She sounds like a little drum when I tap her sides... But she's otherwise perfectly normal. Pooping, drinking, eating... She's off to the vets today, so we'll see!

Vet hasn't a clue why nothing's working. Said they could do a scan but wouldn't be able to do anything about the results as they don't have the facilities. They've said there's no more they can do, and told us she needs a specialist CX Saw that Cannock V4P was recommended on here, a lady called Potter is supposed to be fab with pigs so I'm off there tomorrow. Plus, I work at PAH so I get a discount WOOP!
If they can't help her it's off to Birch Heath in Tarporley which was recommended by our vet...
Oh Tina, I love you, but man do you know how to stir up trouble!
