Bertie still hovers at about 740g. She gets critical care once or twice a day (which is a fight), and still is getting jabbed every other day with 30cc of lactated ringers. The subcues have become a permanent two-man job. She at least doesn't cry all the time, but she is one pissed off rodent. Bertie can't stand to be restrained, but she won't sit still, either. So one person immobilizes her, and the other injects and tries distracting her with treats.
Pinniped, on the other hand, continues to show no signs of ovarian cysts and is focused on gaining back all of the weight she's lost in the last year (she just hit 1250g). It's good to see this pig healthy and happy and oh, so squeezable. Pinni has taken full advantage of the extra food I have in the cage, hoping Bertie will eat more. I may have to start rationing the pellets again if Pinni doesn't level set soon. What a pudge!
They get to play with the Teach 'N Treat during floor time. I've been mixing up the first two levels. They both work on level 2 with ease. Level 1 can still be a challenge. Pinniped excels at pushing the disk around with her nose. She can clear all of the holes in record time. Bertie has had a bit more trouble with level 1, since she insists on standing on the toy, and gets frustrated when the disk doesn't move like she wants. Dope.
