Princess Piggy Poo no longer stoned

Alleluia, Hallelujah and Yahoo! For the second time this year, Princess Piggy Poo has passed a bladder stone and received a clean bill of health.

Princess Piggy Poo Stoned

The first time Princess Piggy Poo got stoned, we sought medical care, changed bad habits and thought she had whipped the problem. Sadly, Princess Piggy Poo had a relapse. And maybe for the only reason, that guinea pigs are prone to bladder stones. After another stint in rehab, she came through with flying colors once again.

Now that we know Princess Piggy Poo has a propensity for getting stoned, we have to be more proactive in our prevention. One way is by making sure she’s a heavy drinker. I’ve mixed a pitcher of pure cranberry juice and filtered water. Every night she gets the cocktail shot though a syringe and belts it down like a trooper. Princess Piggy Poo may have even acquired a taste for the refreshingly tart beverage.

The more unfortunate preventative treatment is that Princess Piggy Poo gets weekly subcutaneous fluids. I’m not sure which one of us is more bothered by the sub-q fluid injections; however, we are complying in hopes that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

I never thought Princess Piggy Poo would step paw in a veterinarian’s office. Every time we’ve left the vet’s office after a visit, I believed we would never see those people again. Now I feel Princess Piggy Poo has her royal cavy specialist on speed dial. I’m just praying there are no more bladder stones in her future, or I may be the one who needs to get stoned.
