    Tera peed on the bed again today.

    Sigh.

    We can't get her to pee for a sample either. Plan of action is to make her cross her legs all Sunday night, take her in Monday morning, see what the vet wants to do. He'll probably keep her in all day until she does something or he will have to extract it" :(

    Izzy is on eye drops and had to have something to possibly kill off mites, she's been scratching like a lunatic but can't see fleas anywhere!

    And Hazel maybe she's still scratching because she got used to it that it became some sort of routine. If she wasnt scratching like crazy before the fleas/mites then I would keep an eye out on her and make sure she doesn't wound herself. Usually that behavior should stop after a little while if the cause of the scratching is gone.
    Hmmm maybe... didn't even think of that. She stopped doing it, but I'll get it checked out. In the mean time I'll give her some dental treats. She's not having any trouble eating.

    Aw I'm glad to hear that! Give him a squish from me!

    Could be! She's been on the same brand since weaning but I know allergies can develop over time.

    We have a plan set out with the vet, if it's not settled totally in a weeks time then we'll go back and consider other things. ^_^

    I don't think it needs it's own thread really

    I don't dress up my pets, Izzy wears a jumper if it's cold or she'll feel it and a coat in autumn/winter weather for walks. Just bought her a new coat this weekend actually! ^_^
