    hi everyone, sorry I havent been able to reply things have been a bit hectic.

    Thank you all for your wonderful messages of support Your all brilliant. Will keep you all updated.

    Thanks for the offer Donna, my uncle (Taffy's owner) is going to take there both morning and afternoon. But will ring you when I have the results if thats ok. Needless to say his owners have yet to ring to see how he got on.

    Oh well looks like all of our Cavies are in visiting the vets at the moment.

    Toby is in for his scan this Thursday
    Archie went and had his 'bits' done today
    and finally
    Tonight Taffy made a visit.

    Taffy's visit is quite serious, apparently my aunt thought he had a fit as his eyes started rolling and his back legs went. He was also very floppy but did not 'pass out'. He was rushed to the vets (Thanks goodness for uncle James!) and he said he didn't think it was a fit but has given him tablets and he needs a blood test to see whats going on. I don't know any more as it all happened when I was at guides this evening.
    On the good side James the vet (the same as the one who is dealing with Charlie and Maxxs_Mum (Donna)) asked about Toby and is going to review his notes over his liver and is making sure he will be involved as we had to see uncle Ralph on Friday.

    Bit of an update:
    Toby was at the vets all day yesterday and he has had his scan and no-where on his lower body has he got any cancer or tumours!!!!


    He did have another test for Cushing disease. We are waiting for the results. If this one comes back negative, the vets wants to do another where he will be tested @ 9am 12 and 5pm. If this comes back negative then the vet thinks it could be gall stones. From his scan which we were shows there is some light bits in his gall bladder. The vet was excellent he showed us all the scans and showed us what we were looking at, all the test results and what they want the next set to look like.

    The symptons of cushing disease Toby doesn't have are being ravenous (he is the opposite and not too fussed about food) and being lathargic. Toby has always been quite lazy and it has not really increased, if anything he has been a bit more play-full.

    So that it is gall stones for me.
    Thanks for all your support

    Unless it’s the very early stages of Cushing’s then I think its likely to be something else, as you have said that Toby is non-plus towards food. Cushing’s is not just the hunger, although it’s a big part of the disease, there’s also the change in fur with some hair loss and the potbelly look to the stomach.

    Heres hoping it something small and easily fixed

    So sorry to hear about all the patients

    Glad that they didn't find any tumours with Toby, that's good news - I hope it's something easily sorted

    Poor Taffy - there's a few possibilities for that, including an heart arrythymia, but it sounds like Uncle James is on the case and will get him sorted - keep us posted

    We're sending hugs and positive thoughts for your cavvies across the sea. So glad Toby doesn't have tumors. Could Taffy have gotten into anything poisonous?

    ************Update************

    Tobys second lot of test have come back and the vet says these test show NO signs of Cushing disease!!!!


    The vet wants him to have one more blood test which they do at 9am, 12 and 5pm. If this comes back all clear then it is gall stones.

    I have him booked in for Thursday but due to something happening at home I think I will have to change it for next week.

    Taffy is loads better, thanks to all your thoughts for them both

    He hasn't had any more fits of any kind so the vet thinks it might just be a one off thank goodness.

    Will keep you all information about their progress.

    Archie is feeling loads better and is due to have his stiches out from being done
