Robinson Update

Thank all of you for all your responses here and on FB - I feel very... supported :)  Which is nice.

Robinson is home, and is okay, though I'm not totally happy about him.  He was given IV fluids and antibiotics yesterday, and came home with a gut antibiotic (which I'm sure brinian will be familiar with.  He ate breakfast with some appetite and was happy to go out.  But he's still displaying some of the restlessness that he was presenting Saturday night, though obviously not as badly.  It may be that he still has some gas and/or inflammation, but if he doesn't settle down I'll take him in to my own vet on Wednesday or Thursday (thank heavens for a rather more civilized schedule this term that gives me late afternoons and evenings).  And they never really said what they thought caused it.  I'm worried that there might be some discord between him and Zoe that is upsetting him - he's very sensitive and quite submissive, and she can be quite snarly.  I love her dearly, though, so we have to figure out what to do about it.

What is Zoe doing specifically? Is it more than just the usual snarkiness? What I found with Colton and Brin was that I had to treat Colton's anxiety issues to calm Brin down. Call me if you need a shoulder/ear! Teaching tonight, but the cell will be on and I'll call back.

Just a lot of snarling and air snapping. On Saturday night when he kept bumping into her I heard her snap and then R yelp loudly, but he was shying away from my hands, too - he obviously had been in quite a bit of pain. I think he might have been hurt by her bumping into him, too. They've been doing fine - I think I'm just tired and anxious right now. I may call you on the weekend, though, if the situation doesn't settle down.

Oh dear, I hope it works out. If he's got pain, it may take a little while for the antibiotic to work, right?

Yes I would think so. And it's only been twenty four hours that he's been on it. He seems pretty bright this evening.
