Oh Phil! Not Again! Phil’s health adventures…at both ends

Oh poor Philomena!

We were at the vet yesterday, dropping Philomena off first thing in the morning.  She needed to have her anal glands flushed and packed with antibiotic solution.  Plus, while she was under anesthesia, the Dr. cleaned her teeth as well.

She came through like a trooper.   We were instructed to give her half of her normal food quantity.  She was super hungry.  We hand fed her so she wouldn’t gulp it down in one bite.  Feeding time was followed by a bout of explosive diarrhea.  Fan-tastic.  And I stepped in it.  Fan-tastic again. Or fantastic-er.

Not her fault, poor little thing.  She looked a little groggy, but slept most of it off.

 

Phil this morning.  Ears at half mast, still not too perky.

We gave her a bit of food this morning and she wanted to crawl back in bed.  Who could blame her?

In the future, both she and Cha will be visiting the vet every 3 months to have their anal glands expressed.  Hopefully, this will alleviate any future problems.
