Re: P@H toys etc ... repackaged or knock offs? and sticky tape?

Noticed the different coloured cargo nets in my local store the other day - think they only caught my eye because they were different from the normal colours! Alot of stuff does seem to have changed, packaging/branding-wise...

Re: Anyone else had a sputnik break on them?

Yup, 1 of the leg/clip things snapped on mine, when my biggest girl (sadly departed now) was in it. Luckily it didnt fall, but she must've felt it snap, as she got straight out of it, which alerted me to the problem (Finn never left the sputnik willingly..). Iv got a new one since, but stil use the ...

Re: Whole list of problems..

Saw vet this morning. He reckons its a UTI, has prescribed baytril (its worked on things in the past, just not her ear prob.), so il give that a go. He doesnt think its pyometra, but said to keep a close eye on her. Plus he agrees with me that the lump feels very fatty, so hes not worried about that...

Re: Very ill, very fast :(

I think the vets plan was the injections today, see if she perks up, then if she IS improving, continue on with a course of treatment. In my jumbled up head, that makes sense. If she takes a turn for the worse, i will of course get her back to the vets ASAP.
