“Butterscotch”

“Bella”

We took Butterscotch to the vet yesterday for his annual checkup, and brought Bella along as well to check on her weight loss. Bella loves the car, but Butterscotch was very unhappy the last time he went for a drive. I think having Bella in the other carrier next to him made him feel a little better. He was very good at the vet and he was in great health.

Bella loves to look out the window in the car, but she wasn’t too happy at the vet. Both buns took a little while before they felt hungry at home. Bella is down another 3 oz. The vet suggested we put her on alfalfa pellets, but I have to keep those away from her mate Charlie. He’s already at his max weight and I don’t want him to have the extra calcium either.

Bella also has arthritis and one of paws always slides to the side, so we’re going to try giving her 6.5 ml of metacam once a day to see if she moves around any better. She tends to pull her front feet forward and close together which isn’t great. Fortunately she’s really good about taking metacam. “Give me my sugary treat in a tube!”
