This is my first time in a forum like this. I was very glad to find
Paw Talk. Anyhow I have a male Prairie dog that is not doing well!
His name is Pedro and he is 4 years old, his eyes are swollen shut and he could not see just before they swole shut completly. He
is very scared and will not eat or drink. I took him to the vet and he
found a puncture wound on top of his head and they cleaned and treated wound. The Vet gave me baytril liquid anti-biotic to give him
every 12 hours (thats a lot of fun). Pedro's eyes started to swell the next day. Note: his vision was poor if not gone before the vet
but no swelling, that started after baytril treatment. Vet told me to
put a warm compress over his eyes (like that is going to happen).
He hes always been very attached to me, but I can hardly give him his medicine now.
Has anyone experienced anything like this with there Prairie dog?
Please Help if you can.

Steve (Pedro)

Please call asap.

I'm sorry to hear about Pedro's condition. Please feel free to call me at your earliest convenience. When you call, please let me know where you are located (city, state) so that I might be able to help further. Did the vet give any type of anti-inflammatory or just baytril? Were any x-rays taken or simply what you stated? Look forward to talking with you.
