Both are improving but not as fast as Mark would like :) So they are on Marbocyl along with the other one which I can never spell or even pronounce. They've also put weight on :thumb: Nutmeg's not sneezed for a few days now :thumb: but her chest is still sounding not right. Mischa has had a couple of sneezing fits, one of which was last night which was enough to wake me so must've been quite rough for him. :(

Mischa headbutted Mark :oops: And then shot up me and into my Dad's arms. Nutmeg also took a couple of flying leaps into my arms. I really must remember to take a towel next time. Mischa proceeded to then spend half the journey home sleeping and half eating his cecals. :roll:

And lastly I took Smudge this time and he seems happier to endure the car ride with Nutmeg then to stay at home without her. Bless. Their relationship is stronger than I give them credit for. :love:

I'm very glad its helped yuo to feel better about the situation now too. If Mark's happy with their progress, you should be too! :)

Go and take some pics of all four and get them up for us - that'll make me feel better :p

I've just changed their boxes so they're all busy eating (and in some cases wearing) hay but I'll try! ;)

Here you are ;) (I know Mischa's nails need cutting, I'm planning on doing it tomorrow, don't want to stress him too much today.)

Eating some of Liz's biscuits...

seems to be a feature of every winter now :( At least with Mischa anyway. :(

I got the pink ones from Tescos. Looked everywhere for them, finally found three for about 15. :) I need to get some more actually as when we go away I sort them out in advance so the people who look after them for me can simply swap them over. :thumb:

me too. I dont think I was around when it was done, or I missed it, but I read the whole thing through when I was thinking of getting Barney a friend. Helped a lot.

Oh help!

None of my usual tricks are working with this. Mischa can smell it a mile off, through banana, apple juice and not sure how I'd get it onto bread. Have syringed it into him as I was left with little other option as I'd already had to throw one tablet/banana gunk mixture. But I really can't syringe feed Nutmeg, it's impossible. I can't even get metacam into her through a syringe.

I really dont know... I always dilute meds that Barney doesnt like in a large amount of stuff, like a bowl of mushed up pellets, but he is so greedy I dont know if it would work with nutmeg. Jam maybe?

Even with a hefty piece of nana AND some apple juice Mischa didn't want to know. It does smell foul so I don't blame him! Might go hunt for some jam. Problem is Nutmeg is fussier than Mischa. :(

Pulling my hair out with this, every time I try something I loose a tablet. I'm down to 10 now for two of them for a week. And I still haven't got much more than a tiny mouthful of mush into Nutmeg.

New update:

Been managing to just about get the Marbocyl down them through syringing. It's not been nice for them or me but it seems to have been working as we had a vet appointment today and their chests sound a lot better and once the meds finish today that's it! Nutmeg's chest still sounds 'whistly' but the raspiness has gone. Think that's just how Nutmeg is going to be.

So yay! *grinning face*
