I just took my girl Casino to the vet this afternoon. She was supposed to go yesterday but when I went to catch her it was as if she knew and ran way up into the hills. This vet was quite good - I was very happy I went there. He said her back area was filled with fluids and he suspected egg peritonitis, although an ovarian tumor was also a possibility. He said x-rays might not be helpful because the fluid makes it hard to see anything and just said his best treatment was to give her Lupron and then go on Baytril. Also found out she had some worms - Capillaria - so he gave her dewormer. The Lupron was expensive so he went with two shots of it for her - he said that was a good compromise between effectiveness and economical. I really hope it works. But as I understand it she is very likely to relapse sometime in the future even if she recovers from this? She is acting quite fine. This morning she did the whole "egg laying" bit again. He said she was doing that because the fluid was probably acting like the pressure of an egg. But she is eating, drinking, all that. Pooping is a little strained and he said that is also from the fluid buildup. Now I finally see what is normal/abnormal for her abdomen. Any suggestions? The thing I hate is that I am going on a trip in about a week. My friend will watch out for her but no one will do everything I do for her - taking her home, giving her antibiotics twice a day. He said it was fine to only give the Baytril for a week instead of 10 days. That the Lupron was what was really hopefully going to help her. Here she is - I tried to give her somewhere "natural" to sleep for tonight while she's in the house. She seems ok with it. But not sure what to do with her the rest of the weekend. Hate keeping her confined as she is a wild chicken and used to running free. Poor thing.
