@SkyPipDotBernie so glad Dot is eating and pooping for you. She sounds like a fighter and hopefully will make a speedy recovery. Just make sure she has enough pain meds.

@YvonneBlue sorry to hear about your friend. Hope she makes a good recovery

She has gone from having a pear shape to now looking like a young shaped pig again. I will be watching her weight though. I do expect her to be a bit lighter now, because she wasnt eating as much hay with the lump in her and now it has gone and her appetite still needs to improve to be 100% again. But she should put it back on again.she used to be about 1.1kg ( before her illness 1 Year ago) i think. Shes now 960g ish. Give or take

She has stopped squinting with her eyes too. I noticed this when she was in pain when pooing. That lump was somehow affecting her pooing. They would come through but slowly

Dots progress is even better this morning. I am very happy, she's full on begging and pushing Bernie out the way to get it lol. Right I'm going back to bed zzzZzzzz.

I weighed her last night and she is now 920g. Which is her lowest weight of what has been anyway. So not worried unless she drops below it. Which i very much doubt she will.

Before the op for around a year she would go between 920g and 990g ish. Just because she had good and bad days with sometimes laying around in discomfort. Her weight in theory should climb now
