    So....

    She is in stasis with a grade 2 heart murmer.
    Sub-cut fluids, metroclopromide, ranitidine, metacam & another drug (begins with C - another gut mobility) all to be given twice a day.
    Syringe feeding if she will tolerate it.
    We're blaming this on too much breakfast (I did go overboard preparing it).
    She's also up to 3kgs so we will be reducing general food anyway once she's recovered.

    Thank you for all the vibes so far, it means a lot to us.

    I hope she recovers quickly. C is probably for cisapride. They seem to have given her the whole armoury there

    The vibes seem to be working. You guys are so amazing.

    We just got back from the vets so while OH cooked us dinner I went to get some brambles.... well as soon as I put them in front of her face...

    She's also eaten 2 bits of hay. Still tons of brambles left but she willingly came out to eat them.

    And yes J&B - She's had this before with a grade 3 heart murmur. Somewhere between 6 months and a year.

    MM - They always give us lots of drugs - we have to slowly wean off once back to normal.

    Vet was very amused by the murmur and believes it comes on as a stress response to being ill - it normally happens in cats so for a bun to get it it's quite interesting.

    The one advantage of not having much forage at this time of year is that if you know where there is even a little bit they are so keen to eat it. I found some fennel and green tayberry (related to brambles) leaves that hadn't been caught by the frost and he had to have a nibble. Also some alpine strawberry leaves. My neighbours will think I'm bonkers rooting around in the garden with a head torch and a pair of scissors. Keep eating the brambles Daphne x
