So sorry, sometimes it just feels like there is no end in sight to it, doesn't it?

You think a corner has been turned and things just continue or get worse... The most frustrating part is not been able to ask them how they are feeling or what is hurting. All you can do is what you are doing and that's loving them and trying to find out whats wrong.

Hopefully Oliver will turn the corner and head is the right direction

I'm sorry, I've had a similiar problem with a sow. She was drinking excessively then suddenly stopped a short time after she passed. I have since researched the symptons to understand Bettes illness, the books suggest its linked to either kidneys or diabetes. Bette had diabetes.

I will be thinking of you and Oliver tonight, I know just what it's like. I do hope for a better outcome for you.

Sending huge hugs and healthy Vibes for Oliver. x>>

It's very hard, we all know, just don't give up. All you can do is your best. Hope he gets better.

Hmmmm...sounds like there is a change in dynamics...I have had paired piggies before who, when one is ill, try and help them by nibbling areas...


SO...where is she barbaring his coat? That may be significant to help identify the source/organ of his problems......even if secondary to the prinicple porblem

But at least it will give you and the vet a starting point...

Sorry can;t be of more help...and wishing you all good vibes..
