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.
