Oh dear. Glad I didn’t ignore her.
Maggie got me up at 6, did the business and we came back to bed.
A little while ago, she got me up again, and usually I would take my time before letting her out. However, although she wasn’t actually pacing or agitated, the way she presented herself in front of me had me getting up immediately to let her out.
Oh boy. Am I glad I did.
Our girl isn’t well as what she is passing is a stinking liquid, and it’s bright yellow.
It could be she has oversniffed and picked something up from the grass.
Or she’s been cleaning her feet and picked something up that way.
Or she’s eaten something that’s disagreed with her.
Both of us noticed she was stiff in her joints yesterday so I gave her a small dose of metacam. That doesn’t usually result in this, just makes her dopey which ensures she has a good night’s sleep.
I’m going through what she had to eat yesterday, and nothing springs to mind except maybe too many biscuits, or both of us gave her a stick chew. The colour of her motions could suggest that.
Other than her dinner and scrambled egg for breakfast, she didn’t have anything unusual or different.
I was going to do chops and roast dinner today but will modify that to pineapple and ginger pork with rice. Rice will help her tummy and hopefully things will settle down again. No treats for a couple of days.
She’s fast asleep with her babies at the moment, though I’ve left the back gate open in case she needs to go out quickly.
