Kicker and Buttons

Kicker is 2 months old tomorrow on the 18th, and Buttons is approx. 6 weeks old. Both get along well, even though there is an obvious size difference, Kicker is the gentle brother :-).

Both got their first shots and were de-wormed, received heartworm and flea prevention medication. Both are weaned as well. All we need now is a good home for them!!!

Quite a Scare!

Buttons gave us quite a scare already. 2 days ago she started throwing up and would not eat or drink for 24 hours. She started to get dehydrated and was whining the entire time..obviously very nauseated and in pain.

I tried a few things from antibiotics to targament to electrolytes, nothing worked. I decided to bring her to the shelter and let them decide what to do with her.

They suggested to give it one more day, because it did not look like parvo or anything of that sort. They gave her a penicillin shot and some de-wormer and I took her back home. She slept for a few hours, woke up and was huuuuuuuungry!!!

So we are all good to go again. She just won't drink from the bottle, has to be the bowl, even though her teeth aren't all through yet..something is up with her suckle reflex or so...never experienced anything like it before.

But whatever works, she can drink the formula out of a bowl and even start on some soft food .
