Achilles’ Post-Neuter #1

Posted: March 18, 2009 in Inside The Playpen

Yesterday, I was worried for the whole day.

It is the 3rd day, but Achilles suddenly stop eating and drinking, and didn’t pass stool at all. So i have to blend some Oxbow BB 15/23 with some alfalfa and mixed it with water (it looked like alfalfa juice to me) before force-fed my little hero. I have to make sure his stomach is not empty.

To keep him hydrated, i blend 1/8 of orange with 300ml water. The orange’s smell helped to tempt him drinks more.

I checked on the wounds and noticed that the one of them was swollen as big as a marble ball. So i kept putting a warm compress to reduce the swollen and clean the area with surgical iodine to prevent any infection.

Photo of him i took yesterday :

Looks painful and sitting on his littertray most of the time
