    Sonya again.

    Thanks everyone. Her poos are so much better now that I've started the probiotics. I've been giving them every other feeding, because a few of the feedings were a little too close to the antibiotics besides. She is much more active now, practically her old self. Barks and "cacks" at me when I...

    Sonya again.

    Thank you for all the info! I only gave her one dose of the probiotics today, is that okay? Or should I give it to her every time I give her the CC, as long as it's outside of the 2 hour window for the antibiotics? Thank you guys so much for your help, I don't know what I would do without you...

    Sonya again.

    I haven't seen any discharge from her mouth or nose, other than the very first day when I saw a 'crusty' area around her nose...didn't have a color, and since the first day there hasn't been any more. I don't have any probiotics, the vet didn't prescribe any, I'll call them in the morning and...

    Sonya again.

    I always have music going in my room while I'm at work, for both the chins and my bird; I've switched from my normal iTunes DJ to just classical for now. A question for anyone reading this: Since Monday, Sonya's poops are very small, hard, and sometimes sort of "strung" together (they come out...

    Sonya again.

    Okay, so. Cats & Critters couldn't get Sonya in until 6:40 pm (and I had to work until 6 pm besides; work is 40 minutes away! Luckily all of the kids at the day care got picked up early so I got out early and therefore Sonya to the appt quicker), and also when I was describing the problem to the...

    Sonya again.

    Tried to give Sonya another "dose" of critical care (10 ml like the vet recommended) but she wasn't too happy with it this time. She did bite me twice while I had her burrito-ed, which is a good sign; earlier when I handled her she didn't care what I did, but just now she was, I think, mad at me...

    Sonya again.

    I haven't observed her eating, but then again she rarely if ever eats in front of me. She refused shredded wheat/cheerio treats yesterday and this morning, but this afternoon she ate 2 little cheerios so I got pretty excited! She gobbled up 10 ml of the apple banana critical care about 15...

    Sonya again.

    Last night at around midnight, I noticed Sonya wasn't herself. I opened the cage and tried to pick her up and immediately had bells and whistles going off in my head because she let me-she didn't even try to hop away. She NEVER let's me just scoop her up (once I am holding her she's always calm...

    Bloody/Swollen foot

    Sorry everyone, I meant to update when I finished her medications, but I had a (not good) crazy holiday and then was very busy with work. Anyway, she finished her medications after 21 days. A few times over those 3 weeks, the sore on her foot opened up--despite the fleece and the bag balm--but...

    chin with swollen, red-coloured pennis and hurt on its top

    So the brother is just living in the room, NOT in a cage? How is he getting water? Is there a water bottle hung up somewhere for him to drink from? How big is this room? What sort of furniture is in there? Is there a carpet?

    dumbest thing your chin has ever done

    Rodya will eat a cheerio out of my hand, search my hand for more, and then push my fingers away from him in disgust when he realizes that it was just the one. Mork runs in his wheel with his head sticking clean out the side of it, like how a dog sticks its head out the window of the car. He...

    Bloody/Swollen foot

    Thanks, will do. Sonya's doing pretty well so far, her sore seems to be healing up well, the swollen area is shrinking (slooooowly) and it is no longer warm to the touch. BUT She absolutely hates me for the eye ointment. She's always been the most miserable whenever she gets dirty...I've let...

    Bloody/Swollen foot

    Got back from the Vet about an hour ago; the vet doesn't want to drain Sonya's foot at this point because she said that I caught it really early, and if she did open her foot to drain it, that the open area might get infected despite antibiotics (if she walks in pee, etc). She also looked at...

    Bloody/Swollen foot

    Thanks everyone :( Poor Sonya! Going to make an appointment tomorrow--hopefully *for* tomorrow... I'll let you know after the appointment what the diagnosis is. It seems to be below and a bit on the side of the joint :(

    Bloody/Swollen foot

    I just did a search and saw 2 very recent posts about bloody feet, and Sonya has had cracked feet that bled before BUT today I noticed that her foot is swollen, and it looks like it has a sore on it, so I'm making this a separate post. I cleaned it really well with some warm water, and then...

    Petfinder chinchilla...BAD advice

    I'm sorry about that, I actually wasn't sure where to put it...I didn't want to put it under rescues or CL ads because I didn't think it would fit there. My mistake, I apologize. In the future if I am unsure where to put something, should I send a Mod a PM, or just post it under "chin chat"?

    Petfinder chinchilla...BAD advice

    http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/19446284?rvp=1 Charlie is a lonely guy since his mate died and his kids moved out! Aparently both chinchillas were fed Doritos by a very young member of the household and the female didn't survive. Then there was a break-up and the new human in the household...

    Skull shape question- Langiera Vs Brevicaudata?

    Thought of you when I took it ;)

    Skull shape question- Langiera Vs Brevicaudata?

    I have noticed something strange in Pico's skull. If run my finger from his nose backwards, to the space between his ears, it feels as though there are two large, spherical masses on either side of a sharp recess in the middle of that area. Rodya, Sonya, and Mork do NOT have this--the space...
