Pippin seen the vet as soon as he opened clinic this morning and it is a bad bout of colitis caused by an infection that is apparently doing the rounds at the moment
He is to stay on a bland diet for the next few days and is also on antibiotics...he had an injection today to kick start the healing process. He is quite tired now and I'd say hungery too by now but I can't give him anything until later tonight.
I just hope gus and DJ don't get it.
Poor Pippin he is my littlest cavalier and he is going through the mill at the moment, just two weeks ago he was diagnosed with epilepsy after a few seizures.
He had a small one in the vets today because he can't hold in the meds, but thankfully as he is not vomiting he is not dehydrated and is able to be home here with me.
I have of course to keep a close eye on him and get him back straight away if he gets any worse....fingers crossed he won't. He still has a bit of diarrhea but no more blood.
I have to watch him like a hawk when he goes out to potty as afterwards he starts heading for grass!
He will be under my nose all weekend..my poor little pip
