    ECR Oranda & Fantail for Rehoming

    Thanks girls! I mentioned them to a friend of mine, who said her neighbors have a pond... We shared some pictures and info, and I took them over today. Sad to see them go, but happy at the same time because I know they will be well taken care of. It's a 500 gallon goldfish pond owned by some very nice folks who get a lot of enjoyment from feeding them twice a day and caring for the fish. Once they were in, I couldn't find Fluffernut again, but SwimFish made a few appearances.
  2. Hi all, long time no see! I'm sadly in a position where I need to rehome my fish... I'm really hoping someone in the Great Lakes area (with a pond... hey a girl can hope right?!) will be interested in meeting up and taking these guys! I have SwimFish, my original fantail from the beginning. He was a Walmart fishy from February 2014, and the dude is a tank - lived through everything I've thrown at him. Confirmed male. And I have Fluffernut, a Thai Oranda from ECR July 2016, confirmed female. They were 63g and 110g in 2016, but I have not weighed them since. They are probably about the same tbh. Like I said, preference to someone willing to meet up, so maybe someone from Indiana, Michigan, Illinois... I need to meet in Northern Indiana / Southern Michigan. Cynthia from ECR has said she would be willing to take Fluffernut back, but if I can avoid the stress of shipping I'd like to. For anyone interested, here's my blog recording the beginning: Page 15 is when I got Fluffernut.

    Thanks She still has a strange belly sometimes. But I notice when I cheat and give her yogurt, it becomes completely normal. So I think I need to just choose a probiotic made for dogs and keep her on that for awhile. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Aw, that was a perfect pic of her face and it didn't save for some reason. Anyway, stitches are out, cone is off. Trying the vet's food to see if that helps her digestion. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sorry! So far so good. I can't keep the socks on her, but I am swamped and haven't been able to get those wraps. Her poo is back to square one though. I wonder if it has anything to do with the antibiotics. We'll be done with them in a few days and then I'll see how things are then. Not sure if it's just the cone, but she really hasn't jumped up on people anymore since coming back home. Hoping by the time the cone is off, she will have forgotten about doing that and the habit will be broken. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks Lisa [emoji4] Today was foot bandage removal day, replaced with old socks. I was out of the room for 15 minutes and she had them both off, so this could be interesting. Her new collar from etsy came earlier this week, but its kind d of hard to show off. It's embroidered with her name and our phone number me right. The patient Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    She's pretty good, trying to play with her squirrel. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No that was all he really said, and added as long as she is eating and drinking fine, she seems fine. I tried to look it up a little last night, but most of what I was finding was in reference to adhesions that happened after surgery, not necessarily from before like this.

    Yeah, I thought originally they had told me they would be dissolving, but when I picked her up they said we'd have to come back. I wonder if it was because of having to make the incision bigger than normal. He said it was very unusual. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks girls [emoji173]I just hate that she's got all this to recover from and that I added the claws without really doing my own research. She's napping a lot today, but that's pretty normal for her really! The discharge directions say the one needs to stay on until the stitches are out, which is 10-14 days. [emoji15] But we sure don't want her messing with them! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No they asked, but I was kind of like, well I don't know much about it, is that something people do normally? And the tech presented it like it would be better to do it under one anesthesia than have something happen later and have to do it then. And for the anesthesia I do appreciate that because it always makes me nervous anyone going under. I'm upset at myself really. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
