|A few of peeved Pinni's chew marks|
Pinni's in good spirits, although she's not gaining back weight like I had hoped. The medication seems to have the odd side effect of making her extremely peeved for a day or two afterwards. Goodness, she can be destructive enough to rival Bertie. I covered the raw edges of the cage years ago because of her penchant for scalloping them. This time, though, Pinni was not deterred. She pulled the fleece from the ramp to the third level and began chewing the exposed coroplast. Each time she'd do this, I'd put the fleece back and add another binder clip. It took three binder clips to finally stop her! She then started to chew the hay rack itself. I had no luck luring her away with cardboard tubes. I had to remove the hay rack for a few days until she cooled off.
She's back to normal, now. Obviously, I need to discuss this side effect with the vet. But I'm hoping it's done the trick, as far as the cysts are concerned.
