He has Metacam for up to a week.Aw, hoping he gets eating now, it may take a while to get back to normal as he will be sore, has he been given any pain killer for a few days?
However, nothing seems to have changed : he can just about manage small pieces of banana ; other than that it is 20ml of syringed mash every 2-3 hours, with some Critical Care as well.
We were not that worried so far as thought it might take a few days for him to start eating again, but I've just had a call from a vet nurse at Colne Valley checking up how he is, and when I said "no change" she was very concerned ; she said he ought to be showing signs of eating a bit already, and if not doing so by tomorrow then it indicates what they've done hasn't worked. I also have your statement, that your piggie Ted started nibbling hay immediately after seeing Simon, going round my head!
With Simon being unavailable from next Tuesday, and tomorrow being the only day I could possibly get Jake over to Northampton, I'm wondering if I should try and get an appointment with him? Of course, he may not be able to see me anyway.
