She’s been next door to Jasper since last week when she arrived, so no real companions bless her, not quite the same as a C&C to get up close. So don’t worry I’ve done quite the opposite!The pandemic has an impact on all of us; especially those with underlying health problems or advanced age that are trying to stay out of harm's way as much as possible. Just hang in there and concentrate on what you can positively do in those areas where you can make a difference.
A quick cataract devolpment does have an impact but concentrate on the sensory enrichment that appeals to his other senses and challenge him on living as normal and active a life as he can; he will regain his personality once he has learned to compensate. The timing is just a bit awkward.
Discuss the vitamin C booster course for your little girl with your vet if you wish to. It depends on the variety of lice and how resistent to ivermectin they are (some are more so than others)/how strong your little one is.
A medicated bath may additionally help in the case of very bad or persistent lice to help remove them from the body as much as possible. But you need to wait at least 48 hours between any application to the skin in order to allow any treatment to be fully absorbed.
Don't separate her from her companions because this lowers the immune system even further. Your other piggies should hopefully be able to fent off the livce easily with the help of a course of spot-on ivermectin.
C&C turned up unexpectedly so a bit of a temporary mess but me and my piggles mental health (well and little Cleo’s health) more important!
I know only a 3x2, but I’m restricted! Temporary! Had to be done today really!
They’re getting properly acquainted atm! I’ve had to leave them to it, Cleo’s terrified of everything (good with a cuddle and likes her kisses but just have to move very slowly!) so although I’d love to sit and see how they go I’m not that mean!
There’s a blanket over half of their cages, obviously Jasper is part chinchilla so not risking it open totally. He’s very chuffed though, even slightly louder noises from her after 10mins while he shouted about how happy he was! Sure she will be too when comes out of hiding!
She really needs to watch another pig eating hay, well just be around another piggle, and a massively confident little man like him (wasn’t 7 weeks ago!) will spur her on I think!
Cleo’s in on Wednesday at C&R to check on her little wonky feet (and Jasper for his neutering check up as he’s naughty!) so I’ll mention it, thanks @Wiebke. She’s thankfully quite into the high calcium veg (broccoli etc),likes a bit of greenery, carrot and apple but I’ve given her top-ups of Pro-C, think a lot depends on how much I’m around with how much she eats! Not that I’m loud, used to scaredy-rodents, she just really hasn’t been handled and my noises are terrifying! Poor girl.
Jasper the utterly bonkers but very sweet lad will help now I’m sure! (Although I’m slightly gutted I’m missing out on seeing them having a chit chat now they can get so close!)
