Dora has impacted pouches 😦 Not so bad on the right side, but really bad on the left. It’s awful (it looks like it has been perforated). She has still been eating and drinking, in fact we didn’t even know she had a problem until I picked her up yesterday. For about a week-2 weeks, she has been staying in her smaller cage. She has two one large and one small connected by tubes. Her cheeks are so big she can’t get through them 😦
I of course was so very sad, and I made an appt. for the vet. I had to call several, because not many deal with hamsters. Thankfully the one that will is 10 minutes away! Only a vet can fix it. Brian thinks it is ridiculous to take a hamster to a vet, but she is one of our family. She doesn’t seem to be suffering in anyway, just gets frustrated when she can’t get into places because of her cheeks.
Brianna and I would really be upset if something happened to her. I know Dora won’t be around forever, but to die because we didn’t feel like getting her fixed is unexcusable to me..
Her appt. is Thursday..
