    That weight loss isn't huge, especially in the time frame.

    But that loss, coupled with the lethargy and disinterest in food and treats, would have me personally inclined to have her checked.

    I would weigh her weekly at the least, just to keep a more clear idea of where she usually is. Daily isn't really necessary and might just freak you out more.

    Fingers are crossed that it's nothing at all.

    Well she's chowing down lettuce which is her ultimate favorite. She's eaten some hay too.

    Just saw this on Bellas nose, between the nostrils. Don't think it's a big deal so should I just let it be?

    Hard to tell what it is. Is it a small hole?

    I can't recall seeing something like that before. As long as it isn't bleeding, or showing signs of being infected, I think I would just monitor it and leave it alone.

    Yeah kind of what I was thinking. I'll look for signs of redness. Weird. Her nails aren't pointy and the hay is bluegrass so don't know how she did that.
