    Badger not eating after her pyometra spay

    She didn't eat but a few licks of tuna but I got some baby food and diluted with water and she ate that.  I've been in and out of the house and I see a little of  some dry was gone (had in special place). She still is pretty lethargic though we had her in the front window in her spot and she was...

    Badger not eating after her pyometra spay

    Picked up Badger yesterday afternoon.  She was a bit wobbly when she got home.  Put her on our bed which she stayed for a awhile. Throught the rest of the day she went down to the family room and rested on the sofa and then the kitty sofa.  Gave her the clavomox (fun!) and meloxican.  Woke up...

    T-43 hours before road trip

    At least the weather should be good.  I don't like driving the mountains thru West Virginia in rain-too many semi's!

    sorry I haven't posted-vibes for me please

    I have no fever and when he looked in ear he said it looked clear.  He said lymph nodes swell due to an infection and I had a cyst or pimple on my face that I picked on a couple of weeks ago which could be the problem.  Today the dizziness was better and I slept off and on this afternoon and...

    Do you mow?

    We have 5 acres and our property is shaped like a triangle.  About 2 acres of it doesn't get mowed except the right-of way. We have a commercial zero turn mower-a Ferris that we bought a couple of years ago to replace our old zero turn mower.  We have a steep sloop that Neil mows.  With the ZTR...

    I woke up Thursday at 4 am to visit bathroom.  I was extremely light headed/dizzy.  Wow- made it back to bed hoping when the alarm went off at 5 am I would feel better.  Not the case.  It was very challenging to shower, dress and drive to work.  Had a glass of oj, a banana and a slice pf toast...

    My hours are changing at work next week.

    Well I guess I shouldn't have done some landscaping yesterday after the new hours.  I could only do 2 1/2 hours and was tired and went to bed at 9 pm.  But Neil started snoring at midnite and woke me up so I had to go into the other bedroom and shut the door.  I also am waking up about 20...

    My doctor said a strange thing to me!

    Drinking de-fizzed Coke was recommended alot.   It seems like it had to be the real Coca-Cola and stir to remove the carbonation.  Maybe because too diarrhea causes dehydration this is one way of getting fluids back in body?

    Should I call someone and if so...whom?

    I would call the local sheriff's dept next time.  One of my BIL's owns a fairly large dairy operation nearby and that would never happen anywhere on their properties.  It could be a case of neglect depending on the condition of the other cows.  I live in a big farming area and I can't ever saw I...
