- Poop Inspector
Ok, last night at 1:00-2:30AM I've given the (big) Orpington, 9mo old, barely 2lbs (a kg) 2 doses 65 minutes apart of 60-70ml water. Followed by a small massage to losen things up.
This morning her crop contents had set again, it felt pretty hard (lumpy). I've massaged it again and had to head in to work, gave her fresh water and removed the solid food.
Just now I've done my first of another 2 fluid (sugar + water) doses, gonna do another in about an hour. Another massage just now and one more in an hour.
What should I be seeing? She hasn't pooped, barely drank (if at all), but she still seems alert and responsive. Massaging her crop losens it up, but it doesn't continue "down the line".
I'll also measure her weight every time prior to the first dose (i should do them in 2s right? 60-90 minutes apart) to see if over a couple of days her weight starts rising due to atleast getting some calories in.
Just gonna try and do it every 2 hours then, 60-70cc's of water with 5gr of sugar and 5ml of olive oil.
Was just observing her and she was shaking her head, gave her another massage and she threw up quite violently and is now catching her breath back in quarantine. The vomit was gooey and green/yellow, the smell was pretty bad.
No poop at all no, the mass still felt the same as an hour ago but alot more loose than this morning. Like a filled nutmilk bag? Meal & small chunks mixed with some fluids.
