Here's little Piggy-Vix, lying on top of a hot water bottle stuffed into her basket. The vet has put her basket into the cage so that she would feel more at home. She is on IV-drips now.
When I reached there, Vix was complaining! The IV-drip must be really very uncomfortable. However, the vet said she did not put up any fight when he inserted the drip. She was totally cooperative. Good girl, Vix.
I stayed with Vix for almost two hours until closing time.
The vet says the immediate treatment is to put her on a water drip to flush out all the toxins from her kidneys and bladder. Hence, she is going to pee a lot. And she did.
While I was there, she must have wet herself three times, and each time, she would shuffle about and move to a dry place. I had to change her towels for her. Vix is very fussy about cleanliness.
I brought her favourite blue furry shawl. We call it her "Cookie Monster" because of the colour. When Vix saw it, she came out of the basket to lie on Cookie.
Vix was very responsive as I chanted positive healing prayers to her. Her tail moved in perfect rhythm to the chanting. She even made little Vixey-noises when I spoke to her.
Finally, nothing beats sleeping inside her security basket.
Get well soon, Vixey. I'll come see you tomorrow.
P.S. The vet explained that kidneys are non-generative. It is rather strange how Vixey contracted this kidney infection all of a sudden, especially when I had just started her with Azodyl, which has an excellent track recorder of boosting kidney recovery. Vixey's condition is not severely critical, but it is alarming. We hope and pray that this treatment will work, and she will recover soon.
Thank you very much to all of you who have sent me comforting messages.
