Hi, Madge is comfortable , and she is being kept in the vets , the prolapse is being packed with manuka honey to take down the swelling. John (the vet) is going to operate tomorrow. I'm have to phone them at 2 o'clock tomorrow to she if she will be Ok
Fingers crossed! Madge is a peaceful sow; she is approx 10/12 years old and was a breeder sow in a pet shop for approximately the first two years of her life.
I am keeping my fingers VERy firmly crossed! Prolapses are always touch and go whether they will go back and stay up! What a great age anyway, but I know that you are magic when it comes to giving your piggies a very long, well cared for life.
As I was taking Marge down the path to the car and a squirrel was following us. He was walking along the fence. l have only seen the that close on the parks , it was a first to see one so close to the house
probably due the the amount of dogs that live around hear .
Hi my sow that had a nasty prolapse , (dame tablet will not let me rite her name so l will call her B )
anyway , B had a nasty prolapse and vet felt the best way was to spay her, and after that she was off her food and not pooping , but after a l long haul of syringe feeding and floor time to exercise her an get her tummy movingproperly , she is finally making progress , and is now eating small amounts and producing poops , they are rather small but it is a start.
I'm glad Marge is making progress. All fingers and paws crossed here hoping for a speedy recovery. As always @gizzy you are doing a brilliant job & I'm sure she appreciates your love. Max sounds like my kind of pig full of beans!
