I don't know if I need advice or what I need from this really but it is health related so I thought I'd post it here.
As I mentioned in BooBoo's memorial (and as quite a few members know) Moo suffers from recurrent respiratory infections. She had a lump removed from under her tail and one of the times I've been back since about her RI, the vet has said that the tumour removed could have spread inside and be the root cause of her RI's. I guess this might make sense since Baytril doesn't seem to clear her no matter how long a doseage she's put on.
Anyway, I took her and BooBoo in Wednesday before last and the vet said the only anti-biotics they offer is Baytril (I know there are others out there and that I really need to contact another vet about her RI's) anyway, we discussed the option of X-Rays/Scans to find out what's going on but the vet realistically said that if they did find tumours on her lungs then we wouldn't be able to do anything and that the results might not even get back before she passes. I also said when she had her op that I wouldn't risk her having a procedure under anesthetic.
I brought her home obviously and recently (like over the past week or so) there has been squeaking coming from the cage and I just put it down to mouse squabbles now I can't been able to even hold her or touch her without getting full on screeched at. She practically screams at me when I touch her sides or tummy and kicks out with her back legs, she's the same if Min goes near her and isn't very careful. I'm guessing she's in pain and I know she needs to go back to the vet (I will be making an appointment) but could there be any other explanation for the screeching?
I'm thinking that maybe she is in pain because of tumours or something.
I know this sounds selfish but I'm really not ready to lose another mousey
