    Not Eating: Re: Scooter's medical thread

    Kelsie, I honestly thought I was losing him when that started. Once it stopped I took it very slow with him, and I think he was pretty scared at the time too. I just tried to comfort him and feed...

    He seems to be doing fine. No repeat of yesterday. He took two full syringes of CC this morning and happily ate most of a cucumber slice. I really do wish he'd eat other things like hay or pellets...

    Giving him his 9am feeding now and although it's a bit slow, hes eating it fine. He may have had something lodged in his throat earlier, I just dont know but right now he is doing much better.

    Seems to be walking ok now. I will see how he is at 9 before calling the vet as he may just have had something caught. Either way I'm not liking this but I'll see how he does.

    Scooter went for his check, and the vet found one overgrown tooth. Just one. All the rest of his teeth seemed fine. Dr Ker trimmed it off, but he couldnt believe how long and sharp it was.

    Diet: Re: My Piggies Are Picky!

    Totally agree with bpatters. That's boar glue, and when it dries it will first go to a rubbery consistency and then dry rock hard, almost like crazy glue.

    Well, the vet said we did the right thing bringing him in because, as we all know, not eating is serious and he ate very little on his own yesterday.
