- Tuesday she started sitting still and staring into the wall, all puffed up. She would still eat on occasion, hay, pellets and some vegetables. Her eating was more difficult so we suspected something with her teeth. She couldn't eat carrots unless I chopped them into small sticks that she could eat kind of like spaghetti.
- Wednesday we took her to the vet. They look at the teeth and couldn't find anything wrong with them. They suspected that she might have had a blow to her teeth or similar that caused her pain when eating. They proscribed something for the pain hoping that would make her eat normally.
- Friday. Talked to the vet. She didn't seem like she was getting worse, but not really better either. She was still eating, so
- Today is Saturday. The last couple of days her appetite has dropped a bit. She does still eat a bit of hay and some pellets, a bit of vegetables if I slice them thin. Most of the time she just sits still in hiding, but every now and then she comes out to eat a bit of hay or pellets. We are of course still giving her the pain meds and I have started giving her Fiberplex and Critical Care as a supplement. FP is currently 1ml/day and CC, which I just started today, is 1ml - 3ml every 4 hours.
Just had her out like an hour ago to weigh her and give her some snacks. She still takes snacks also. I found her to be a bit hotter than usual, but nothing I'm sure of. Could just be me having cold hands or the fact that she has been tugged into her nest when I took her out.
Any help is appreciated. I will surely contact the vet on Monday, but right now I just don't know what to do. We do have some antibiotics, but I don't know if it's a good idea to start giving her something like that without knowing what the problem is.
