LOOKS LIKE A WHITE MOOSE WITHOUT A RACK
He is still swollen up like a "poisoned pup" & can't eat or drink. So far today he's had 8 liters of fluid & another 5 liter bag is hanging & dripping. This morning I set the alarm to go check it in 30 minutes. I should have set it for 29 minutes, I guess because it went dry. I called the vet to see what to do, but she didn't call back for about 5 hours & by that time the line was clogged. So she had to walk us thru getting it unclogged. Boy I wish we knew what we're doing, poor Quilla probably would rather have "real" nurses, if he had a choice.
He tried to eat a little mush tonight although he still can't close his mouth. It's a good thing, I was using my hands to push mush into his mouth & got past his teeth. He chomped down but his teeth have about a 1/2 inch gap, so I didn't get bit.
By the time we got the line unclogged, it was almost 8pm. It's dripping at about 1 drop per second & the bag is a 5 liter bag, so it's going to be a LONG night I'm afraid. The vet said we could stop it for a couple of hours, but not a whole night or it will clog again. John said we'll set the alarm & take turns going out to check. Boy, that really sounds like a lot of fun, doesn't it? (G)
