Mimzy is still on twice a day of each of the following: 0.25 ml metacam and 1 ml metaclopromide (reglan). The reason he was put on the reglan was to keep his guts moving in the beginning because he hardly moved due to the tilt and when he did move he'd roll. I kept him in his night habitat at first but even padded he'd bash into the sides so I converted a storage tub into a 'hospital bed' and ditched the pen for fear it couldn't be cleaned well enough to prevent reinfection ...since we're presuming he has E.C.
He spends a few hours a night (I only get about four hours myself these days due to insomnia so I'm to bed late and up early) in the box bed still because up until recently I would see him still lose control of his balance from time to time. When I dropped the meclazine I was giving to him (oddly enough, for balance!) I saw vast improvement and big binkies and flops! He seemed so much better...then suddenly this new problem.
Currently I'm working out a space for him to be in his xpen full time now and possibly room for Pip to at least be next to him. But with this recent change I feared he would quite literally binky himself to death if he was having heart trouble.
Not likely though...he's been a whirling dervish all morning. Itching a lot too, I have to have my hand on his head at all times overnight because he'd try to crawl into bed with me. (He sleeps right next to me.) If I didn't have to worry about what Jenna would do or rolling over on him or him weeing the sheets I'd let him!
Waiting for a call back now. My secondary bun vet is off for the week (typical) so the third in line (who's pretty good) is on call. I still miss my numero uno gal though.
Sadly she was the one who told me Mimzy could be on reglan long term.
Pip is having sludgy urine and was straining a bit in her litterbox the other day. The hay they're all eating can sometimes do this to her this time of year. The calcium content may go up in it as the year wanes I guess. Since she doesn't do well with extra greens for water content anymore (mushy cecals) I'd probably have to do sub q's and she is not a cooperative rabbit even for a groom.
Sorry if this doesn't make much sense...still typing from my phone.
Really...I just need a break. All this and low funds, my son's wisdom teeth and bad roads...I need some relief! >_<
