We’re going to the vet again

Lily’s appointment is on Wednesday in Virginia. She’s my 4(ish) year old guinea pig that gave birth to a bunch of pups a few years ago. She’s never been to the doctor since she moved in with me, and I found out this weekend that she’d chewed the hair off her lower side. This is […]

1 year post PU

I haven’t written anything about this, because I don’t want to jinx it. Tommy came home from the Annandale VA hospital February 17th 2017 from having his Perineal Urethrostomy performed. I keep seeing progress updates showing on my Facebook Memories, and we’re up to the point that he had learned how to flip his soft […]

We went to the vet

I packed up Amalie and Stewart and we trekked to the vet yesterday. Amalie needed pre op for a dental, and Stewart hadn’t been seen in over a year and is on Prozac. Amalie has always wished that we never let Stewart into our home. He’s wild. He moved in when he was approximately 10 […]

Has your cat stopped eating?

Tommy decided to do that a few days ago. We didn’t know if he was just picky, having switched foods again, or maybe he was having trouble smelling, or generally “What is going on with my cat?”. One of the first lines of defense if your cat is losing their appetite is FortiFlora made by […]

YouCaring for Miss Bailey, a boxer, who needs a new knee

A friend of mine has been working on this problem for a while. Bailey is a very active girl who came into their hearts as a rescue. First one knee went, and then the other. In the meantime, when he was going to work towards putting his puppy back together, she got gravely ill with […]

old lady Mu-Xi Mu

I’ve been meaning to update but my heart isn’t in it. Mu Mu has been having a difficult time. Noticed Wednesday last week that she wasn’t eating her cucumber. I had seen her nibbling about two days before, but not fully eating. So this went on until a very early appointment Thursday morning at a […]

2 more weeks

After Tommy got his cone off, he would make himself bleed while grooming. He wasn’t particularly rough with his nethers, but it was still sensitive. I left a message for the surgeon and a day or two later he called me back. Leave his cone on for two more weeks until his 1 mo checkup. […]

We got the sutures out after his PU surgery

I have a graphic image. It’s his new boygina, all the suture marks, and a mucosa underneath the surgical site that didn’t close, so he’s basically got a new open pocket under his urethra we have to monitor. If it doesn’t start swelling or get infected, I suppose it’s supposed to heal over on it’s […]

post surgical

We picked up Tommy the evening of the 17th. He immediately started fluffing whatever he could get his outstretched paws into, inside the carrier, as soon as he heard us surround him during discharge. The total for his PU surgery was $2400. He peed yesterday afternoon at home. He pooped in the middle of the […]
