HOWDY PALS- Last part of my Stress Induced Bacterial Colitis Saga.....
Digel- stopped the ugly poo within 12 hours. This was just pawtastic,cuz
then my little butt,started feelin' better right away! It's made out of all kinds
of fruit pectin and good tasting stuff! Just squirt into my mouth.... The
2nd. med. was called Panacur and was a white powder. This was sprinkled
on my dry kibbles. (Fur Doc said, Gma could put chicken broth on there,
so it would dissolve and stick to my kibbles.) This medicine,I think was
for settling my tummy??????? If there were any nasty parasites in me,
this would wipe them out! I'm wormed on a regular basis. It was a
just in case thing....I suppose because there are so many barn kitties
around here? In case, there had been something I snagged off the ground
and ate.....Maybe,Gpa never saw it??? The 3rd. med. is the antibiotic
called Metronidazole. 1/2 pill,2x's per day for a week. This wipes out all
the very nasty bad bacteria in my intestines.....So my system re-balances.
This isn't flavored.....At 1st.,Gma just popped the pill in my mouth,rubbed
my throat and I swallowed. I decided after 3 days....I DON'T WANT IT!
So, I started rollin' it in my mouth and spittin' it out! Now it is wet and
wants to fall apart! HeHe! Things are improving, Gma is going to put
it inside some cheese.....We have to do this until Friday mornin'....
I'm getting good and spittin' it out and makin' a mess! Then when
it get soft...Gma is afraid I'm not gettin' all of it......My appetite is
normal and healthy. I never did lose the sparkle in my eyes or
gloss in my fur.....I was plenty lively,just haywire guts!
Next week, Gma takes me back to the Doggie Hotel while she packs
and leaves for her Momma's house. I'm in charge of keepin' Gpa
in line...Seeing he does the Honey Do List and all that jazz! We get
along fine! I can work more treats out of him......Now it is nice enough
that we can hunt and stuff! Besides the striped gopher,I also scared up
a bunch of baby garter snakes today. It was in the high 60's. As I told
you, the Fur Doc wants to see if this is a 1 time deal???????
If not,Gpa will have the medicine here for me to take.......If it happens
again, the Fur Doc is going to have me take Digel and Probiotics,when
the vacation thingy comes around. Gma has these calming treats and
the caregiver has some things like that too. She also has one of those
misters with the calmin' stuff sprays into the air... NOW this is beginning
to sound like the ROYAL TREATMENT! I'M A PRINCESS,SO WHY NOT!
The funny thing is that I showed no signs of any stress...Except
not eating my normal meals......Gma told Gpa, well, we better be
taking the LOOKIN' FOR THE HOUSE ON WHEELS VERY SERIOUSLY
and GET A MOVE ON FINDING SOMETHING! Obviously,we are not
going too far,for too long without her......PALS, I'm really tryin' to
HELP GMA OUT HERE! She really can't do the harsh winters any
more.... She's told Gpa, he has to get us to a warmer climate....
Fighting chronic pain 24/7 for 40 yrs. is hard on anyone...Gma says,
it's wearin' her out before her time......
I'll do my best to read everyone's new entries before Gma sneaks off
on me...I'll report back in late May on how things are going. We have
one bottle calf,a twin. Calving is going pretty good,so far. Saturday
until Thursday we are having some pretty night temperatures. Tomorrow
is very breezy! Weekend back to 40's and possible 40 mph winds....
Hugs and Kisses,Mazy
