Re: Sadly

I can't believe your little guy is gone just a week after you had helped me thru my own loss. I wish there was a way to turn back time and know when their last day is near to change those last minutes you are with them but sadly there isn't. It still brings tears to my eyes wishing for something I k...

Re: I'll miss you Mika...

Thanks for all the supportive words (and for the beautiful poems,etc, on these boards). I really does help as much as I wish this whole thing was just a very bad dream. She was the sweetest little girl :(

I'll miss you Mika...

After all my little Mika has been through- surviving major eye surgery and then nursing her back to health after a tooth incident- I never thought it would be now that I'd have to come here to say my goodbyes to her. Everything is still so fresh in my memory- I can't get the horrible memories of her...

Went from better to worse :(

Just wondering if there's anything I can do to help Mika until I can get ahold of her vet first thing when they open tomorrow. She's suddenly gone from looking better to suddenly being worse than I've ever seen her. I have no idea what's going on. She was due for her checkup this week & to see i...

Re: Another issue: Missing Bottom Tooth Causing Problems

Ok went to vet Thursday... by the time we got her in she really started licking herself more and just looked more scrawny and not acting at all like herself. She didn't even want her non-shell pecans which she was just snatching from us just days before to eat. She also started urinating more freque...

Re: Another issue: Missing Bottom Tooth Causing Problems

Thanks for the thoughts everyone! I got an appointment for her Thursday so we'll see what they think and let them be the evil ones to clip her teeth for the millionth time. She's probably going to think they're removing another eye though since it will be the same place she had her eye surgery at ;)...

Re: Another issue: Missing Bottom Tooth Causing Problems

Thanks! I was also thinking about that as well. I guess the vet wouldn't have caught it had it been in its early stages at the time as she wasn't showing any other signs back then... or possibly its just recently grown into this.

Another issue: Missing Bottom Tooth Causing Problems

Apparently my squirrel likes to keep me stressed out over her. Several months ago during the summer I noticed her top teeth seemed a little longer than usual. I thought maybe she was getting lazy so I took everything soft out of her cage and stuck plenty of nuts to break open and chew things. I woul...

Just an update on her cheek... the swelling has gone down but still not sure what started it and if the antibiotics are really helping it or if it's all a coincidence and it's healing on its own (maybe a reaction or something?). She still has a week to go on the medication so I guess we'll see what ...

I guess it's a frustrating waiting game then. I'm hoping for the best of course whatever that may be. So the eye must be removed if it's damaged but the infection is controlled? Or would it be harmful staying in either way? She's taking the eye ointment well... it's the oral she's fighting. I did ge...

Well we got her into the clinic earlier today. Apparently the infection is in the eye itself and not the surrounding skin so they said the eye might be lost. I just don't understand how she can go from perfectly fine to drastically swollen within a day's time. She was prescribed an antibiotic oral l...

That's what I don't understand about the laws... if flyers have been pets for many many years and even a former president can have a flyer as a pet (I think)- why is it still a law that they can't be pets in some states? Yet other exotics and more dangerous/ damaging animals are allowed no problem. ...
