Looks like a bladder stone alright!!



A GUINEA PIG's ITSY BITSY URETHRA passed this ROCK of GIBRALTAR!!
The following is from an email updating me on Tonx the Piggy Piggy. Thank Jesus, and I pray her ordeal is OVER! The Cinderella Fund and the Ladies from Special Bunny ROCK! And so does Speedy and Mum Rachel and all of you kick ass people who helped this little girl out!

Looks like a bladder stone alright!! (interesting Halloween nails too, ha ha!)
The support measures I gave it apparently worked and it was flushed out.  SQ fluids, Saw Palmetto, and phenazopyridine, and owner is continuing to give the meds for another day plus extra oral fluids as well.  Piggy is now eating more normally again, not squealing when urinating, and seems to be pretty much pain-free now once she got the SP and phenazo. Worked like a charm!!  (Learned that little trick from several rabbit owners dealing with bladder/kidney stones who worked with vets that were aware of both of these items.)
  Xray inconclusive----but not obvious stones or sludge.  Awaiting blood work   Owner is now able to make some financial contribution and helped pay for blood work as paycheck will be arriving.  Need to now look at cause, and address that. Most likely some diet/fluid modifications, depending on kidney function.
Thanks to all of you for any assistance you provided, especially the Cinderella Fund girls!!

May be a happy ending to this story........

  1. Brandi, I finally got my contribution made. I hope I did it right. Hopefully, it is not too late to at least help pay for the blood test. Thank you for what you have done. I know you are wondering what I could have done wrong, but UT alumnus sort of explains all.

    1. Jane, you are fantastic, even if you are a UT alumnus. LOLZ. FIFTY POINTS to Gryffindor! Oh, I mean, University of Texas Longhorns! I take back what I said about Mack Brown. Dang, I am so conflicted about this. I take back MOST of what I said about Mack Brown.

    2. Brandi, The Aggies just beat a number one team. I am sorry to spoil the new found rapport, but I want to make sure you understand that we are being punished for YOUR sins.

    3. DUDE! What HAPPENED to 'Bama?? I hate the Aggies more than I hate the Longhorns, with their dumb cheerleaderless cheerleaders. SHEEEeEeeeeee-it. They always talk about their "traditions"...PUH-leeeez! Tradition=National Championships! Oh and their kissy kissy crap at every touchdown. Makes me roll my eyes so hard they almost pop out.
