Hey therem I recently lost my kaytee to the angels and I spent most of my time looking after her and worrying about her 24-7 as she was very poorly. I have two other cavs Rosie and Billy. They are 4. Of course they were treated well but now kaytee has gone I realize I did spend all my life focused on her.
Now she has passed I'm so lonely and have been really low but my Rosie has been a real comfort, Now I feel Ive shifted my worrying onto her, I know its silly but I have been so unlucky with my babies in the past and now I'm scared as history keeps repeating its self.
Billy had a health check recently and thankfully he is in good health YAY! Rosie is due for her check but I am having to save due to the expense we had with loosing kaytee and we crashed our car on the same day .
I will get her there asap but what I was wondering in the mean time is what does everyone know about the "runts" of the litter? I hate that word but so Ill say "Teeny"
Rosie didn't sell when she was a puppy because of this and the breeder gave her to us, she has slippy knees this was noticed on her first vet check when she was a pup but it seemed to correct itself and its rare now they pop out, only sometimes when she is on my lap OUCH bless her, but it doesn't make her cry out like it used to.
I have noticed though when I touch her tummy at the back by her hind legs she flinches, I take this as a sign of pain which got me worried, esp when she cried out once, yet there is no sign of tummy trouble and its been this way for a while now. I will get it checked.
Do you think that the runts have a good shot at life? I hope she will be happy and healthy, I heard of another cavalier runt who didn't make it to two I'm hopeing as Rosie is 4 she is out of the woods!
Thanks for reading and hugs to all xxx
