    Sneezing: Re: Simon's Medical Thread.

    Woke up this morning to find rearranged pigloos. Only Simon does this, Leo can't be bothered.

    I picked him up to bring him out for his meds. Plunked him into the tupperware to weigh him, and...

    Sneezing: Re: Simon's Medical Thread.

    Thank you for that, sallyvh. I appreciate the info!

    I did manage to get Simon in to the vet today. He is remaining on the Sulfatrim at the same dosage I've been giving him for now, with a recheck...

    Sneezing: Re: Simon's Medical Thread.

    Just a small update:

    In my travels this morning I managed to determine that the oral suspension of Bactrim (or Sulfatrim in my case, also has many other names) has a shelf life of 5 years. So...

    Sneezing: Re: Simon's Medical Thread.

    I took what you said to heart, and I am now looking at nebulizers online. Unsure if I can get one from the vet if need be, and if I never need it so be it. Having one would be better than not.

    Sneezing: Re: Simon's Medical Thread.

    Well, so far we tried Sulfatrim in June. Helped but didn't get rid of it. He just had two weeks of Baytril. Again helped but back 5 days after finishing. He has improved with the Sulfatrim again,...

    Just out of curiosity, has anyone else ever had a pig with a stubborn sinus infection? Any suggestions on what helped their pig, and duration of antibiotics needed to finally get rid of it? Two...

    Sneezing: Re: Simon's Medical Thread.

    So, I had some Sulfatrim left over from Simon's first vet visit at the beginning of June. I'm really not sure of the shelf life of this stuff, but at the rate Simon was deteriorating I had nothing...

    Sneezing: Re: Simon's Medical Thread.

    I weighed him just before bedtime. 954. So he's lost even more weight. He nibbles at hay and takes the odd sip or two of water but that's all. I gave him a full 12cc syringe of Critical Care, also...

    Sneezing: Simon's Medical Thread.

    Well, here we are again.

    Some of you may remember that when I first picked Simon up, his former owner told us that she'd given him a bath, and he got a faceful of water. He was very congested...
  12. Urine: Re: Blood in cage, excessive drinking, possible stones

    Glad to hear shes doing better. I completely understand the overly worried part!

    Continue to observe her eating. She could just have had something caught. If it continues, get her teeth checked. ...

    The general consensus is 4 weeks, to allow time for any remaining sperm to die off.

    I am so very sorry for your loss.

  20. Mouth: Re: Need help Can anyone tell me what this could be on his lip?

    Ditto Soecara. I'd watch it to make sure it doesn't get any larger, change colors or anything like that, but it sure seems to be that it's probably boar glue. If it is, it'll disappear all by itself.

    Rumblestrutting: Re: Do my boys hate each other?

    Piggie personalities vary greatly.

    What you're describing seems like behavior from a couple of boys who get along pretty well. As long as there is NO bloodshed, you're doing ok.
