The first day back on tylan

When I let the girls out this morning Dandelion had more of a crust on her right eye than yesterday. We assume she must have had eye bubbles during the night and like conjunctivitis they form a crust by morning.

At this moment she scratched at it with her claws and managed to dislodge it.

Dandelion had a good drink of the tylan water and some of the mash also made with the tylan water. I didn’t see any more eye bubbles during the day.

I am hoping that putting the girls back on the tylan may have nipped this in the bud quickly. I will continue with the tylan for at least seven days and reassess then.

    She certainly looks better than in the previous post, which is encouraging. We are just back from Maidenhead; when we’re down in the lighter nights, I’d love to pop over and see the girls (and you and Richard, of course!)

  2. I am again feeling a bit more hopeful today. We would love you to pop in and see us.

    So sad, and so much stress for you.

    • It is. I have moments of wondering if we will ever get clear from this. I get myself ready to accept that Dandelion may not make it, she is the weakest one of them, then I get hopeful again that she may get better. It’s so up and down and I know that I can’t medicate for ever but it’s so hard to give up too.
