As soon as I saw the criteria for the first OUAS challenge this month I knew I had to do it. The journalling criteria was to writed about 2 noteworthy events that happened last week. So with Miget's operation firmly in my mind I had to do a page about it. The 2 noteworthy events about the whole business were when the vet phoned to say he had come through the surgery ok. There had been a chance he wouldn't make it and there had been a lot of tears in our household the night before and that morning. The other noteworthy event was when he started eating his apple again. That was a signal that his mouth was better and he was on the road to recovery. We still have to give him antibiotics for 6 weeks which has been another trial in itself. The first couple of days he lapped it up straight from the syringe (probably because he was so hungry and it was sore to crunch on anything). Then he decided no he didn't want it anymore. I tried force feeding him with the syringe with some success but it was really too stressful for me and Midget. So, I resorted to putting the antibiotics on bits of toast crusts (which he loves) and that seems to have done the trick. We have had no problems since then. Fingers crossed!!
