Bah!

Pepper's sick again - looks like another flare-up of the pancreatits.  At least she likes taking pills. 

The problem w/ a sick pet, as those of you who have them know, is she can't come to me & say "I think my pancreas feels a little swollen."  She can only demonstrate by pooping all over the rug.

*adds Bissell Spot Lifter to Jenni's list* Trust me, between the random animals and the random children (not to mention the occasional parent) that get dropped on my doorstep this is one of the best little gadgets ever.

Seriously? Is this a great big vacuum-thing, or something smaller?

Much smaller. It's the size of a Dust Buster. Worked miracles on the milk Olen spilled all over the place and more than a few spots of cat puke.

I had the Little Green Clean Machine, which wasn't so little and spent most of it's time in the laundry room. I actually used the Spot Lifter (until I lent it to the bitch, who lost part of it and sent it back with a powercord she wasn't sure actually belonged to it.)

You're welcome!

Well to be fair, she did kinda hint last night that All Was Not Well - we speculated about it on AIM :P *petses the pooch* What's the time span between flare ups? Is it me, or is it getting to be a monthly occurrance?

Well, yeah, I kinda figured I'd have to call Dr. G. this a.m. anyway.

Not quite monthly, maybe every 2 months or so. The last time she was sick it was something else entirely. :-P

Oh poor critter. And poor critter-mom, too. It's hard to keep on cleaning up, knowing it's only because your pet is ill, but you're still the one cleaning up and chasing around and giving meds.... Kind of exhausting and frustrating.

We just went through a year of similar problems with our ferrets, so you have all my sympathy.

Thanks.

Giving meds is actually the easiest part of the whole thing. Wrap the pill in cream cheese & she'll practically take my finger off.

At least that's one crazy thing that's easy.
