DIARY: Monday, October 4
These photos show Angel's affected hind
legs due to scurvy. Both legs were immobile on Friday, but
by Saturday, with a lot of Critical Care and extra C, she
was able to lurch forward. She was unable to keep her balance
before, but can hold herself up now.
Even though she likely has liver damage,
she has been urinating more and her poop is looking more
like a normal poo instead of little shriveled bits. She
does not appear to be in pain, and can eat anything once
she gets it in her mouth. Although she is a bit poufy, bloat
has been ruled out.
So far, I have been giving Pedialyte orally
along with about 100mg total of vitamin C daily. She
has been getting Critical Care every 2 hours, along with
any parsley, dandelion greens, and hay she can eat. I have
been hand-feeding her pellets, since both top front teeth
have fallen out.
My friend Jo Ann took her Sunday to give
her calcium supplementation and a bath to soothe the urine
scalding on her bottom. Angel tries to clean herself occasionally,
but does not have her balance back quite yet.
inquired about hepatic lipidosis on GuineaLynx, and
they have been very helpful.
