Two updates in one post!
I was going to split the post into two sections, one for each day, but I don’t think I really need to.
The overall gist is that we’re still seeing very small improvements each day; sometimes when we go check on him he sounds awesome, other times (especially after the sauna) he sounds significantly more sneezy / wheezy.
Regardless, he’s still loads better than on day 1.
He’s turning into a right little sod for med time though 😀
Not only is he much more willing to curl (and I mean properly curl, where you can’t see / get to his face at all) but he’s also cottoned on that if he clamps his teeth together I can’t get the syringe in, and the baby food oozes out the side of his mouth.
I can’t blame him, but sheesh!
Thankfully I have some experience syringe feeding animals and knew what he was doing with his teeth, so he didn’t miss any doses, but it means I have to be really careful at med time. The process has gone from taking about 4 minutes to 10 😛
When he’s up and about and doing well, the difference is honestly amazing – he could almost, almost, pass for a healthy hog 🙂
He explores, snuffles, there isn’t too much sneezing, and he just looks so damn cute!!
And here’s your update video…if you see at the start, on day 4 even when sleeping he was quite wheezy, whereas if you keep an eye out for day 5 you will see his sleeping was almost silent!
I’m not sure how much Baytril we have left.
I imagine we will need another vet visit (stress, travel and probably around £70 vanished…oops) but I hope the staff are impressed with Flair’s progress and agree he has a chance to beat this URI 🙂
