Re: What to do for Pippa. Please help.

An update on Pip... My vet felt that we should give her a shot on steroids, but she confirmed what I felt in my heart- that it wasn't in her interest to put her through another operation. She could see the deterioration in condition since the last op ( she has lost muscle mass and is generally older...

Re: What to do for Pippa. Please help.

Thank you both.

I think my dilemma is currently the fact that the tumour is so big and firm that it's pressing on her organs and I may have to let her go before she's ready because this thing is physically hurting or hindering her.

Sorry, does that make sense? I'm kind of rambling.

Re: What to do for Pippa. Please help.

What an awful decision you have to make, I do not envy you this. I really just go on my gut feeling when I have this sort of choice to make. Either way you will always think what if, that's just human nature. What ever you decide to do for your girl it will be with her best interests at heart. She ...

Re: What to do for Pippa. Please help.

Hi and thank you for replying. Yes, I should have said that. We always try lumpy girls on Galastop but unfortunately it hasn't done anything for Pippa :(

These abdominal lumps have been like nothing I've seen before and the vet seems to think they are malignant, aggressive tumours.

What to do for Pippa. Please help.

My lovely Pip came from a large rescue in Glasgow last year. I took in her and daughter in May 2012 and she was already a fully grown adult. She has always been poorly with lung scarring and respiratory problems and has been on and off meds. She had a large, aggressive tumour removed from her abdomi...

Re: Who has had explorer/SRS trays made?

Is it because the sides go inside the front and back? Yep, the perspex we used is 4mm thick so 592+4+4=600mm so it would need adjusting accordingly if you go for a different thickness :) Thank you :) I was going to shave a fraction off for ease of getting it in and out the cage, as Nelly had sugges...

Felt a little silly asking, but I just couldn't quite think how it went together :lol:

Re: Who has had explorer/SRS trays made?

It's stuck with this stuff called Jaffa tape - it's kind of like carpet tape but much less annoying. I can't do the link as I'm on my phone, but it was sheetplastics.com or something like that, and the sizes are... Base: 895mm x 600mm Front and back: 895mm x 150mm (that can just be however tall you...

Re: Who has had explorer/SRS trays made?

Thanks guys. I think I will just go for the clear. And probably take a tiny bit off the length and width to make it a little easier for myself.

I'll get it ordered next week :D

Re: Who has had explorer/SRS trays made?

I couldn't find coloured perspex that was as thick as the clear I don't think, or if I did it was more expensive. There is a reason I went for clear. Yep, it is more expensive :( That's what I'm trying to weigh up. Whether it's worth the extra money just to be a little more aesthetically pleasing f...

Re: Who has had explorer/SRS trays made?

As soon as I have extra pennies, I am ordering a perspex tray! I just had to send back a Savic tray I had ordered for the bottom of my SRS as it was a piece of rubbish!! Long story about all the trouble I had buying and then returning the bloody thing. What a joke! So...opinions please...should I ju...

Re: Galastop & PTs

The dose on my bottle of Galastop for my girls is 0.4ml per kg. My girl is 500g and so was on 0.2ml.

My vet said once a day :? Although I guess there can't be much difference between giving 0.1ml twice daily or 0.2ml once daily!

Re: Castration!

What weight is he? It's very difficult putting our rats through any kind of operation, but in this case it sounds like he definitely needs it and so if anything didn't go to plan, you would still know you did it for the right reasons and not just for convenience. It doesn't sound like you or he are ...
