    Unhappy dont know if piggie will make it

    Please say a prayer. my 4 yr old male is being treated for a uti.started last Thursday. took to vet she put him on antibiotics. Need xrays couldn't afford last week was taking him tomorrow. he seemed to be doing better started eating more and seemed to be pooping and urinating ok though still showing blood in urine. he mostly ate his hay,pellets and green leaf lettuce is what he only seemed to want didn't bother with his carrots wich he always ate first. and he did crave his strawberries still and sometimes a bite or two of yellow pepper. when I came home today he's hunched in corner picked him up he's in a lot of pain seems like and looks like his right side of his abdomen is distended. tried calling my vet the exotic wasn't in they gave me some referrals but all closed.don't think he's going to make it.

    What antibiotics is he on? Are there any emergency vet clinics near you? Most areas have at least one emergency clinic for after hours care.

    ETA: This place is located in Springfield http://www.vcahospitals.com/old-marp...n/animals-seen . They say they are 24 hours and see exotics. I don't know anything about them (I'm in Iowa), but found them on google.

    Is he doing any better? I lost my first boy to a urinary blockage, he didn't show any signs or anything. I was so upset. I'm hoping things turn around. Sending love!

    no luck with an exotic vet.all the 24 hr hosp didn't have an exotic vet .I've called 6 around me even as far as 45 min away.from what I've read he could have bloat or a blockage if he had stones.I know he's in pain and it hurts knowing I have to wait and pray till morning.

    I no what you mean. My son has a vino pig named jump,jumps. He's a cutie pie. But huge, around eight lbs. My son calls jumps my grandson... LOL just keep his bedding clean. Keep feeding vino pig hay. Gini pigs need hey to keep their digestive tract open...
