Poor Maggie has been selective feeding on and off for a few weeks. Her poos are also very small. Her teeth were checked at the outset but the Vet ( NOT Christobel) was reluctant to do a Dental as Maggie has damaged lungs having had pneumonia as a baby :cry: Maggie is also 7 years old so a high GA risk.
Anyway, Maggie has maintained her weight but is obviously experiencing oral discomfort. Christobel examined her yesterday and confirmed that she does have quite large spurs :cry: A Dental must be done. Christobel cannot access the effected molars without putting Maggie under GA. I have been advised to start Maggie on Septrin to try to kill off any latent bacteria in her lungs to prepare her for the GA. Maggie is also on Metacam.
However after just one dose of Septrin Maggie has developed diarhhoea :cry:
So the Septrin will have to be discontinued. I have given Maggie some Fibreplex and will speak with Christobel later when I take EDDIE in to see her as I fear that he too may have molar spurs. I really dont understand why as he has always eaten tons of hay and he is a low risk breed for dental problems ( Eddie is a Rex)

:? :?

:cry:

Oh dear Jane! Poor Maggie...I hope everything turns out o.k for her and Eddie. You really must have your hands full at the moment, (then again, I am sure you always do!)

Sending lots of positive vibes for you and all your bunny family (and foster family;) )

Now Grandpa has stopped eating. We know he has had a gum infection which has responded to abx and pain relief. But now it appears to have come back and Christobel said if that happened we'd have to risk a full GA/ Dental. Grandpa is 10 and has recently had 2 CVA's :cry:

I dont think I am looking forward to the rest of today :cry:

Maggie and Grandpa are now with Christobel and they will both be having a GA/Dental. They are both VERY high risk for a GA.....:cry:
Eddie does not need another Dental just yet, thank goodness.

Please dont worry about PMing me :D

Well Maggie and Grandpa have come through their GA, although Grandpa gave Christobel a nasty fright :shock: and he had to be woken up pronto.
I have not been able to speak with Christobel as to what she found to be wrong with Maggie and Grandpa's teeth as she was still operating when I phoned. So I'll get a full report later. Now I just have to hope that both Buns make a good recovery and that their old kidneys have coped with the GA...........

Unfortunately Grandpa has developed complications. He has had a severe bleed in his mouth and has also bitten through his tongue :cry:
The bleeding has now stopped but his tongue is so swollen he cant fit it in his little mouth :cry:
I have treated him to prevent him going into shock (sub-cut fluids/heatpad) and have spoken with Christobel. Grandpa is now very flat and we dont know if he will make it :cry: I am to give him another half dose of Metacam tonight to try to reduce the inflammation.

Poor Grandpa :cry:

Maggie is very wobbly and has not eaten or poo'd yet but she is not in such a bad way as Grandpa

Good grief what a night :shock: Maggie is brighter within herself. She has poo'd but is still not eating :cry: She really does not cope well with stress :cry: She has had some syringe feeds but I am worried that is stressing her out even more so I am leaving her alone for a few hours now.

As for poor Grandpa.......:shock: :cry: :shock: He is still with us but it has been touch and go all night. He had another severe bleed at about midnight and I feared he would go into shock as he had already lost a lot of blood. I managed to stop the bleeding and then gave him some warmed sub-cut fluids (I hoped he was not too shut down as if he was the fluids would be useless) and then wrapped him in a towel and covered us both up with a duvet. Grandpa's respiration rate was so fast I could not count it :shock: Eventually he settled and slept for a few hours. I gave him more fluids throughout the night and in the early hours Grandpa managed to sip Raspberry diorolyte fluids from a syringe. His tongue is less swollen now, at least it fits in his mouth. He has just had a shot of Metoclop' and Metacam and is actually attempting to eat some grass :) It is still very early days. I am worried about how his kidney's will have coped with the GA and all the blood loss :? It is obviously risky giving him Metacam but he had to have it because of his very swollen tongue. It must have been so painful :cry:

Please continue to send 'eating vibes' for Maggie and 'stay with us vibes' for Grandpa. Gawd I am KNACKERED :shock: :shock:

Mggie has started to pick at a bit of food but nothing much :cry: She HATES being syringe fed and refuses to swallow anything I have tried her with :cry:
I have given her more pain relief and metoclopromide. I just hope she'll gradually eat more for herself because syringing her just makes her worse :cry:

Grandpa has not eaten on his own and has not poo'd at all :cry: He is being syringe fed and has had pain relief, Metoclopromide and sub-cut fluids. He has done nothing but sleep all day and has hardly moved :cry: Its still not looking good for Grandpa :cry: :cry:

My chinchilla hates being syringe fed which the vets try to do when she's had a dental, but I found if I made up the Science Recovery stuff a bit thicker and with warm water and put it in a bowl she'd it eat on her own. Not sure if you've already tried it (knowing you, you already have!) but thought I'd mention it anyway.

Really hope they both recover.

How are they doing now?

Maggie is less stressed as I have left her alone. She is nibbling at bits of food and I am no longer going to force the issue as it just makes her worse :cry:

Grandpa has not eaten unaided all day :cry: In the last hour he has passed some sticky poo (sorry :oops: ). He does not appear to be distressed, unlike last night. I have been giving him sub-cut fluids throughout the day and he is on a heat pad.
Christobel has been texting and phoning all day to check on Grandpa. Christobel is not even on duty so I really appreciate her concern. I dont know if Grandpa will make it, but at the moment he seems settled so I'll just see how he gets on throughout the night.

Thank you for asking after Grandpa

Maggie is much the same, although she is eating a little more. Her guts are still working so I an going to try the 'minimum intivention on my part' approach today.

I fear we are loosing Grandpa :cry: He cant eat and is reluctant to swallow the syringe feeds now :cry: He remains on maximum pain relief, Metoclop, Abx and sub-cut fluids. He does not seem to be distressed, just very tired. He did loose A LOT of blood :cry: I have just given him a multivitamin injection to see if that perks him up. I will text Christobel later today for advice as to whether we should let Grandpa go...........:cry: :cry:

Grandpa has perked up a little over the last few hours. He has even attempted to eat some very finely diced celery. His mouth is obviously VERY sore as his chin is permanently soaked with saliva :cry: Grandpa has been more willing to accept the last few syringe feeds and he continues to have sub-cut fluids.
I have spoken with Christobel via text and we are going to give Grandpa a bit more time to see if he will eat once his mouth has healed.
I dont know what the outcome will be for Grandpa............

Grandpa is eating !! He can only manage very finely cut up veg. I have made him a salad of celery, spring greens and carrot with some porridge oats sprinkled on top. I cut the veg up with scissors. I could cry with joy as Grandpa is actually eating a good portion :D He has also passed a sort -of -poo :D He is even showing interest in Maggie again :D Mags is gradually eating more, I think I caused her more stress with the syringe feeds:oops: :cry:

Oh yayayayay! I'm so pleased!

Even when the prognosis has been grim when an animal shows the will to carry on, as Grandpa has, it's such an amazing thing. I'm so pleased he's eating, even though it must be so uncomfortable for him.

I have to say, Maggie does look the sort who likes to do everything her own way!

I'm really pleased to her some positive news, lots of vibes that it continues!

Thank you all SO MUCH for your support :)

Maggie continues to improve, she really does not 'do' stress at all......

Grandpa is much brighter and even buzzed me this morning :shock: :lol:
He is still only able to eat tiny amounts of scissor-cut-up veg. But at last there have been some poos, albethey pin-head ones. I will keep his meds going today and try to get him to eat a bit more, I may need to continue supplementing his intake with syringe feeds to keep his guts going. I dont want to just use metoclop' as if there is nothing in his guts to be pushed through he may get gripey tummy pains.
I know Grandpa could go downhill at anytime, he really did loose A LOT of blood. But he appears to want to keep fighting so I cant give up on him yet.

The old boy is much the same, eating tiny amounts and reasonably bright. His chin is still permanently soaking though and so I guess his mouth remains sore :cry: I swabed his mouth with saline earlier and I think it has helped as lots of old blood and gunk came out. That cant have tasted nice :cry:

I took this piccie this morning

Well Maggie now appears to be back to her old self, thank goodness :)

However, Grandpa has deteriorated :cry: He is bright within himself but has stopped eating again :cry: He is also drinking A LOT. We are thinking his Kidney's are packing up, which is what we feared after the GA and subsequent heavy blood loss. I have just spoken with Christobel and we agree that we dont need to let him go this morning as he appears cheerful and not 'suffering'. I am not going to syringe feed him as the one attempt I did make caused Grandpa a lot of stress.
Grandpa remains on antibiotics and pain relief and I am also swabing out his mouth regularly.
I dont think Grandpa will be with us for many more days......:cry: :cry:

I have just spoken with Christobel again. Grandpa is now in the 'last chance saloon' :cry:
His mouth has become very smelly and we feel significant infection has set in :cry: Christobel says we should give him one last chance and has advised starting him on Depocillin injections and adding Torbugesic to his pain relief meds.
Grandpa is now resting. Things are not looking at all good :cry: :cry:

Hows Grandpa doing? :)

Well I have not dared post about Grandpa yet today for fear of tempting fate. Grandpa seems MUCH BETTER :shock: :D
Yesterday morning I seriously considered taking him to Christobel for her to help him to The Bridge :cry:
But Christobel seemed certain we should give the Depocillin a go as a 'last hope'. So far she appears to have been right (AGAIN :roll: :lol: ) Obviously there is a risk that the Depocillin will cause serious gut problems. But in these circumstances it's a risk worth taking.

PLEASE keep the vibes coming for Grandpa. Do you know, he really reminds me of the late Major Tom :love:
