    Stones: Re: Kodi's Medical Thread

    I managed to get some photos of Kodi. She screamed like a banshee every time I touched the area around her sore spots. Poor baby.

    These are the two sore spots, and the only ones I'm able to find....

    Stones: Re: Kodi's Medical Thread

    Interesting. I must've had the symptoms for the two confused. Thanks.

    I'm quite tired as of now and it's late here, so I just briefly scanned over the article. Not much wants to sink in at the...

    Stones: Re: Kodi's Medical Thread

    Everyone's poop returned to normal after restricting veggies for several days. That issue is resolved, and everyone is back to eating the usual foods.

    And so, a new problem surfaces... Kodi almost...

    Stones: Re: Kodi's Medical Thread

    Okay. Thanks! And yes, I will wait at least 48 hours between adding veggies once I reach that stage. Will update once I figure out which pesky veg is causing issues.

    Stones: Re: Kodi's Medical Thread

    Kodi's got some sort of digestive/intestinal funk, I do believe.

    Backtrack a week, and I noticed "poop balls" (five or six poops stuck together), along with some oddly shaped poops in the cage....

    Stones: Re: Kodi's Medical Thread

    My exotics vet called me this morning (as I was driving home from buying more lettuce for the girls, coincidentally). Kodi's culture test results came back clean! :)

    Stones: Re: Kodi's Medical Thread

    I just got back from taking Dakota to the vet. The vet palpated her abdomen, took x-rays, an ultrasound, and urinalysis with sedimentation and found no stones. Yay! He is going to have a culture test...

    Stones: Re: Kodi's Medical Thread

    I just got paid this morning, so I made a vet appointment for Kodi. The earliest opening my vet has is this Wednesday at 4:30 pm, so that's what I took.

    Popcorning: Re: Is Abaddon Popcorning????

    First of all, your post would be easier to read if you broke it up into paragraphs. :)

    Secondly, some pigs just hate floor time. If that's the case with your Abaddon, I wouldn't bother with it...

    Re: Pooper's final resting place.

    Pooper's stone is beautiful. How lovely. I'm sure he's smiling and wheeking with joy as he looks down from the rainbow bridge. Know that he'll always be with you in your heart.

    My old girl, Nikki, passed August 4th. She too was euthanized, as she was suffering from numerous and reoccurring bladder stones and heart disease.

    Goodbye, Nikki, my love.

    It breaks my heart to announce that Nikki - the precious girl that inspired my username - has crossed the Rainbow Bridge at the age of 6.5 years. I always had a false sense of hope that she'd live...

    Lump: Re: Nikki has a lump

    I agree. I don't want her to suffer, and so I've made the decision to euthanize her. She has an appointment tomorrow afternoon.

    Nikki's lost over 4 ounces over the past week, and I caught her sneezing - though only once, so I definitely suspect it's a URI that the vet and I caught. Thank goodness she's on Bactrim and Bene-Bac...
