    Default Change in Blossom

    Blossom has developed problems with her leg joints being too lax. She is on metacam for the pain now.

    My problem is that she has never been a great cuddle bun, but a few weeks ago she went quite quiet, and was more than happy for me to cuddle her and stroke her. I thought maybe she was just feeling better being on the metacam.

    The past few days though, she has totally changed again. She grunts and launches herself at me sometimes, at others she will happily sit and let me stroke her again. If I put my hand in her run to pick something up, she will make a run for it, although she doesn't bite.

    She is eating fine, although some of her poops have become slightly softer than usual. She eats masses of hay, but also picks up some of the larger pieces and throws them around. She has also started spending ages digging in her toilet.

    Does it sound as if she may be in pain somewhere, or does anyone have any idea why she has changed so quickly?

    She was at the vet for her myxo 2 weeks ago, and had a check then. She was really quiet and "friendly" then. Everything was fine, except for her legs.

    Have to say the change in her behaviour would worry me. Has anything changed around her? It sounds as if her behaviour might be partly territorial.

    I am a bit worried about her behaviour to change so much.

    There hasn't been any change lately, that I can think of. I had thought it was territorial, but with the change in her poos I'm not so sure. She used to always have lovely golden poops. Now a lot of them are blacker and some are a bit soft.

    I don't think she is quite as active just now, although she can still run when she is launching herself at me.

    To be honest I am a bit worried to take her to the vet, as he has already expressed a concern about her legs, but I don't want her to be in pain, if that is what it is.

    Is her throwing some hay around a sign of something? She also eats masses and masses of hay a day, so it's not that she can't eat it.

    How I wish she could tell me what was wrong.

    The change in her poos is a bit worrying. Maybe put a post in health and you might get a more expert reply.

    All my buns have been on dust free hay because of Honey, until about a week ago, when I have allowed Blossom some H4P and various others. I reckon she could eat a bag a day!

    Might be the other hays causing her a problem with her poo, so will go back to dust free for a bit.

    I'll post in Health tomorrow, if she is still behaving differently, and see what comes up.

    Will do. One little madam is enough for me, without Blossom joining in. She's making Faithy look like an angel
