Yes she's still on the metacam (1.7ml a day until Wednesday or Thursday I think)

Which strength? We've been told to use around 0.1-0.2ml a day.

No idea what strength it is, she definitely said 1.7ml and showed me where on the syringe though

This evening Lucy managed to get up into the low-hanging hammock all on her own :) Obligatory 'mummy is taking photographs, I'm going to pull my silliest face' photograph: http://sphotos-c.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-a ... 9623_n.jpg

1.7ml is high for both strengths. Are you sure its not 0.17ml on a 1ml syringe? I'd be worried about dosing that high.

You've all got me really worried now that I'm overdosing her... *panicking a bit*

Just double checked the syringe, as suspected you guys were right and I'm an idiot she's on 0.17 not 1.7. I'm an idiot.

Just thought I'd check. I work in a lab and even the most experienced people get confused sometimes. She is a very cute rat I do :hearts: BE siamese :)
