oh Jo, I am so sorry. I'm glad she is with you now.
I can't advise you as I am not confident about illness but I'm sure someone else will be able to help.

Oh no. Not again. I'm so sorry. You could always ring Vedra at the CCT. I know you are in New York but it might be worth trying. her number is 07721 026401 this is a cell phone number

thanks for the advice. unfortunatly i cant dial numbers in the uk. will call the vet in a few. hopefully he has an open appointment.
i just dont get it. first, she wasnt pooing but was eating. then she gets the runs. i dont know from what coz i havent really changed her eating regimen. now shes sick again. ?

just phoned the vet and have to be in at 4:30 so at least i will be leaving work early. ;) i just hope she gets well. i hate seeing her like this and being helpless. :'(

Yes, it's terrible. Could she stay at the vet's for observation for a day or so?

thanks. the clinic isnt big enough to keep her overnight. the city isnt as equipped with clinics as you guys as home do. thats the downside of living over here. piggies arent really a popular pet around here as dogs and cats.
gonna have to work my lunch break to leave early. gotta leave by 3 coz the ride is long. well only 4 and a half hours to go!

well i took princess to the vet and he gave her a different kind of medicine that i cant even pronounce! it smells like grape so its a treat for her. fed her before i left to work. gonna get some yogurt later on. i cant believe she went down to 1 pound 10 ounces in less than a week! shes resting but breathing pretty hard. hopefully she will get better soon.
