Okay I will be making my first trip to the vet for my chins....sigh.
I'm not sure what happend....I know baisley was fine on Friday...i had her out to play and cleaned her cage and everything....then last night, JR notices something on her tail...so it turns out there's the huge lumpy bumpy thing on her tail...and it's on each side...it's all read and swollen...looks like the size of a small marble...and on one side there this little white bumpy thing (it kinda looks like a zit that needs to be popped).
I'm pretty sure it's not ringworm...years ago we had a stray cat that adopted us...and it had ringworm...and it dosent look like the cat did...it's only on her tail...i'm not sure if she got it hurt on something...but I've checked her cage and can find nothing that could have cut it....sigh
I'm so upset for her...it looks really painful, I feel so bad. But last night she came right out to us and she dosen't act like it's bothering her...she was just as cuddly and loving as always, she did get a little upset when JR was trying to take a picture of it...so i'm pretty sure it hurts her. my poor baby
So the vet appts at 2:30, I'm just going to our local vet her in town...they have a new Dr. up there and I've spoken with him over the phone, he was very nice, he does have small animal experience, and some chin experience. Living in Indiana, heart of Amish country, it's hard to find any vet that treats anything except farm animals and cats and dogs. I do have a more expereinced Chin vet lined up in case of any major emergency...they are about 45 mins away though, but they treat many of the Zoo's animals, so they are my emergency vet, (they are extremelly expensive, that's why I'm trying the new guy here in town first.)
So anyway, here are the two pictures taken last night, one of each side of her tail...figured I'd better get some other opinions on this.
sorry they are both blurry and not very good pictures, JR took them not me....
I'll be back to after the vet appt....
