Hello, all. Princess has been on antibiotics for about 3 weeks now. She is drinking more water and is actually eating a bit from her bowl! She even manages to get a little "squeak" out from time to time. I still feed her with a syringe just to be sure she has something in her system since I cant see what she does while I am at work. She lost some weight but hopefully that will reverse in time. Her droppings are kinda dark though. And even though she drinks water, I see more droppings than urine...should I worry? Hope to hear from somone soon.

oh, I also found a probiotic finally! i really wasn't crazy of the idea of giving princess yogurt so i went to research online. there's this cool site, www.thistlecavies.com and its really nice. i purchased some there and all the purchases contribute to the rescue efforts they make for other piggies. they have a cute little shop too! check it out! ;D

I am so glad she is doing well now!

It sounds like you are doing all the right things for her so I'm sure she will soon make a full recovery.

Ooh, I am so pleased she is improving! Well done for being such a wonderful piggy nurse.

Thistle's is a Lovely rescue - I buy loads of stuff from their shop, it's lovely knowing the money is being used to help piggies in need.

Thanks for the update! Well done to Princess and you for doing a great job.
