Hello friends. Mel here. I’m a bit confused about what has happened to me. Yesterday me and Mum went to see the lovely Vet. We stayed there for the day. I went to sleep for a while. And when I woke up my front teeth were gone. I’ve been very brave. My mouth is very sore. I’m having lots of medicine, cuddles and yummy Emeraid. But I have still managed to eat some of my veggies. I think I still like pepper more than I like Emeraid. But Emeraid is lovely. 5FC3B74F-EA71-42F5-A4CD-D5043873CBBB.jpeg

Ahhh hello Mel you brave brave girl. It’s fab to hear from you again as we keep thinking of you here.
Keep taking your yummy medicine & try eating a variety of veggies for mummy. I’m sure your mouth will start to feel bit better soon.
Sending you healing vibes & let us know how you’re getting on. x

Hello all. Mel here. Today I have been trying to eat hay. It’s a bit tricky since my front teeth went. But the foster mum has given me 3 different types of hay to try. Timothy hay is the easiest to eat at the moment cos it’s got big stalks I can get onto my back teeth and chew. The hay rack is also a bit better cos the stalks aren’t flat on the floor. I’m sure we will work it out between us. I’m really trying.

Hello all. Mel here. The foster mum took me to see the vet today. She had a good look in my mouth. Apparently my holes are healing nicely but she removed some pellet mash I was saving for later. I don’t have to go back again unless I have a poorly mouth. I’m glad about that. I would like to be left to get on with eating my hay in peace. CEBA3735-C6C5-4C26-8526-B309EF58F246.jpeg

Thank you for all your good wishes guys - little Melody is doing brilliantly. She’s been eating halved blueberries today and hanging out of the cage asking for more. She’s regained the weight she lost after surgery and has even gained a bit more besides. She has a real lust for life. She’s a real fighter.

Lovely to hear that you are doing well after your surgery, glad that she has a zest for life.

I will message you Vicki as I have a piggy who I think is in need of a front teeth removal surgery, just wanting some advice.

Hello all. Mel here. This summer me and Mum went to stay with Auntie Emma when the foster family went away. My egg cup went with me and Auntie Emma was great at filling my egg cup with treats. She even worked out how to feed me strips of cherry tomato which I love. Here is one of my holiday photos.
