We took our newest foundling to the vet yesterday morning. She was just so tiny and weak and the swelling in her eye got worse. A small fortune later? Both eyes stained: no injuries, drops given. Fecal smear: No parasites. Antibiotics given for upper respiratory infection. Age approximation: 3-4 weeks so give bottle feedings or wet, stinky food if she’ll take it. Fleas? Way too numerous to count, slightly anemic because of their dastardly ways. Flea killer found which is acceptable for young age that works within 30-60 minutes but only stays in blood stream 24 hours. Fleas sloughed off in mass quantities. Cleaned up and happy. She is THE most tiny thing. You can’t believe it! Only .64 pound. Just starving. But eating left and right to try and make up for it.
Today I came home, give her meds and eye drops and she wanted to play! Tried to eat the camera. So I will share a couple (more than…) pictures of her. This is what happens on my blog when new babies come into my life. ( you simply must click on them to see her full size! Chloe loves being admired.)
