Ambaa takes a turn for the worst

Posted on Wednesday 23rd December 2009 @ 11:36 am

Late Tuesday afternoon Ambaa starting acting oddly. She was shifting around her house and lying in odd positions. She wouldn’t take any food or water – not even mealworms which are her current favorite. A bit later she was hunched in a ball and and looking as if she was in some discomfort.

The vet was able to discuss these symptoms over the phone and didn’t think it was too serious but wanted her back in the following morning.

The vet gave her a thorough examination and was generally happy. It was good to find that her temperature was normal. However he wanted to repeat the x-rays and possibly do an ultrasound because her tummy seemed more tender than it had been and Ambaa was in the highest risk period for developing peritonitis.

Ambaa’s is have the test done at the moment and the vet will ring once he has the results.
