It really is amazing what the correct dose of Metacam and cage rest does. These lovely little creatures never cease to amaze me! On Sunday the vet said we may have to pts if he didn't get any better. I knew he wasn't ready and with my love and dedication he would be OK.
Aw, good news, it will take a bit of time to get back to normal but such an improvement from a couple of weeks ago. He will be so much happier with his ladies to cheer him up, wishing him a full recovery xChristian went to see Aunty Alice this morning as Aunty Auxi is away on holiday. Aunty Alice said that although Christian is walking better and his reflexes are good on his left side and not quite so good on his right he is still in pain on along his spine. He told her that as he said the piggy equivalent of "OUCH!" when she examined him. I had to syringe feed him this morning as he was at his lowest weight yet (955g) but that is probably muscle he's lost from being on cage rest for 10 days. He is still on a high dose of Metacam for another 2 weeks. Then we can see about weaning him off it. Hopefully being back with his wifelets will encourage him to eat more and get him moving around a bit more to build his muscles back up. He is still quite perky in himself and is a lot happier to be back with Velvet and Meg.
Thanks @Bill & Ted. I am so much happier now as a couple of weeks ago I thought I might lose him.Aw, good news, it will take a bit of time to get back to normal but such an improvement from a couple of weeks ago.
