How is Ivy doing? Poor girl!
I am in total agreement with Karrie & AHBD with regards to medication use. The only medication
I would consider would be the Meloxicam, but just for a short period of time.
The vitamins & D3 wouldn't be the cause of any vomiting or anything like that.
I don't think she needs the other medications since there isn't any infection at all right now. Are they
sending you the test results this week?
I am sure that the UVB will make a lot of difference for her. You are doing great. Keep us posted on
I just went to check on her and the blackness in her beard and body overall has gone down tremendously, I’ve added photos. At some point yesterday she still had a little black on her sides/below neck - I’m hoping this is a good sign? I think its the water that helped her.
When I went to check on her, her eyes were closed but I noticed her clicking her mouth/tongue the way she would after I give her water so I assumed she was thirsty and gave her water and she completely accepted, biting the syringe again.
I agree that the vitamins and D3 wouldn’t cause vomiting, I’m confused as to why he said that. He said the oral D3 could’ve caused her an ulcer and prescribed her medication based on that. The results should come in tomorrow at most - I was also thinking based on googling could it be an upper respiratory infection? (But she doesn’t have any mucus/goo/fluids coming out her nose/mouth so maybe not? Just couldn’t think what else is wrong with her)
UVB arrives today - will install it as soon as I receive it! Will definitely keep you posted on the progress. Thank you so much for your response I appreciate it
In the pic with her mouth open a bit, that was in between drinking water - don’t think its anything to worry about she was swallowing
