For those of you who were keeping up with the Fretful Nights thread, here's an update.
After having a chat with DH, he took Willow to the vet on Monday. (I knew I married him for a reason!) So the information I have comes through him.
Willow was given a complete rectal exam. Her anal sacks were emptied, and fecal matter was tested. Apparently, she has a bacterial infection, though the dr wasnt sure if the infection was in the anal sacks or the digestive track. She's been given Flagryl to take twice a day, and she is due to return to the vet next week for a follow-up.
The good news is she is improving. Sunday night, before even going to the vet, she slept through the night for the first time in three nights. Monday night, she had a bowel movement that we actually could see. It was solid without blood, so she seems to be on the mend. It could have been the vet expressing her anal glands or it could simply be that the pumpkin etc. was getting through the system. At any rate, things are looking up!
The bad news is that today it is raining, so I'm having a heck of a time getting either of the girls to go out to do ANYTHING, let alone poo with constipation!!
