My lovely Syrian Cadie is an old lady but still fighting on. She
was diagnosed with pyo yesterday after developing symptoms late on
This is her on Monday:

She's feeling a bit better after a day
of meds mixed in delicious baby food. She's not fit enough or young
enough for a spay so my vet and I agreed to use medication to try and
keep it controlled for as long as possible. She's 2 years and 3 months old but isn't ready to go yet. This is her medicine tray:

Paws crossed for my little old lady.

    Poor lass, pyo can`t be comfortable for her being a womb infection. Hopefully the meds will keep her out. x

    Thanks for all the good wishes :)
    I've used the medical approach before for an elderly girl who wasn't fit enough to spay and she survived another 9 months. I'd always prefer to spay if there was a choice, but Galastop and high dose Baytril is better than nothing,
    Cadie was feeling better with the meds and air con yesterday - I caught her monkey-barring in her hospital cage!

    That is positive news, as long as she feels well in herself, that`s the main thing. x
