I took Martina (gerbil) and Plumita (mouse) to the vet today.
A couple of weeks ago, I came home to find Martina with bloody front paws. I cleaned it, took out everything in their cage, and put medicine on it. It hasn't quite healed yet, and her right paw is still swollen. Vet checked her and she broke her radius/ulna. He didn't prescribed anything for her, as it was healing alright.
Plumita has had respiratory infection symptoms since sunday. I hadn't had the chance to take her before cause I was busy with school. Vet checked her and prescribed Trimethoprim Sulfa for her. She even looks more active after the first dose
Good thing is... I didn't get charged for the visit!!!! Dr. is one of my profs. When I arrived, he was in ruch, having to do a surgery, and several patients waiting. I helped him with the surgery, while his assistant dealed with the clients, and then helped him with the patients and the cleaning afterwards... When we had finished with the clients, he saw my babies, gave me the medicine and told me that he wasn't going to charge me.
Good deal, cause I really didn't had anything to do, so I had a good time too.
