    We took her to the vets this morning, they checked her over and gave her a injection of emeprid, and some more of it to give her at home, they checked her teeth and she has some small spurs so she is booked in on Thursday to have them sorted out

    I'm glad you have some Metacam to give her, that always helps where pain from dental spurs is involved.

    I hope that she will be back to normal by the time of her dental on Thursday

    She has passed some poo since yesterday the odd pieces now and then
    Since getting back from the vets she has eaten some apple and a bit of parsley, we also have recovery food to give her.
    We are going to ring the vets back again when they open this afternoon to ask about pain relief as we only realised once we got home she didn't have any

    A wise decision

    I hope her poo output will improve and that she will soon be feeling a lot more comfortable xx

    I'm glad to her she is passing poop!

    Yes, some up to date Metacam would be a good idea. But my vet reckons the old Metacam still works after 18 months.

    The shelf life of an open bottle of metacam is 6 months.

    Just a quick up date, we took amber in today and it turns out she didn't need a dental, her teeth are fine.
    She seems to be back to normal now though eating and drinking fine.
    Thanks for all the help

    Hopefully Amber will remain well now and I'm glad that she does not need any Dental treatment x
