|Re: Daisy is falling over.
Jake is home, he's beside me on the sofa. I'm rather stuck here until tomorrow as I need to make sure he isn't knocked by the other dog and gets help if he needs to go to the loo! He is sore and sleepy but the op went well and I think he will be much more comfortable soon.
The vet looked at Daisy and agrees its likely to be an inner ear infection or something like spondylosis. She's in tomorrow for bloods, x-rays and possibly an enema because she's struggling to pooh. The bloods will show how her kidneys are doing and if an infection is there, the x-rays will show any spinal issues. I'm sure there will be, the last time she was in for a dental I had her chest x-rays and her rib cage is extremely abnormal, rather than deep and rounded its narrow and squashed. She has always had an arched back and never carries her tail up, which is why she gets acupuncture. I'm hoping its her inner ear, as its the best issue to deal with.
Josy, the Netherland dwarf rabbit, is also in tomorrow to get her eye checked. She was in to be spayed and have a mammary lump removed, I asked to get her x-rayed first to check nothing had spread to her lungs ( on the assumption the mammary lump was malignant). Her heart became very erratic during the x-ray so we did not go any further, however her right eye must have dried out while under because when we collected the vet noticed it and we put her onto fucithalmic, but I think she now has an ulcer. Josy was part of a large rabbit rescue we did but most of the rabbits went onto Fairly Beloved Rabbit Care, who Rehome buns. We kept Josy because she had mastitis and she always had a dirty bum. The x-rays showed she has a very deformed spine at her shoulder blades, which explains why she can't clean her bum.
