Lizzie update

Update on Lizzie – vet has confirmed she has had some sort of blow to the head, and is suffering with concussion.

Her eye has fully closed now, but we have to wait to see how it develops, hopefully the swelling will go down in a day or two and her eye will be non the worse for wear.

The flea burden has been drastically reduced already, with bazillions dead in her box, so that has been cleaned and fresh bedding put in. That should make her feel a lot better, not having all those fleas feasting on her.

She is still a bit stressed, and has not yet eaten, but she will hopefully take some food overnight.

Dental work

This venerable old lady is back from the vets now, she has had a full dental job including scale and polish.

Her lips are still swollen, as you can see in the photos, and her mouth and gums will be sore for a day or two. She had very bad Gingivitis and plaque, which the vet has sorted for her now.

We need to monitor her food intake for a few days, and take her back to the vet if she is not eating properly in the next couple of days.

She has lost a lot of weight because her mouth has been too sore for her to eat, and needs some feeding up.
