Last night my little man Mowgli was really not himself; he was very restless and quite poorly swallowing and coughing all the time. A few times during the night he had me up and outside walking him in the rain; all he wanted to do was eat plants as though doing that gave him some relief. It was almost as though he had something stuck in his throat.
This morning we took Mowgli to the vet where he was very brave letting the man put his fingers down his throat and stick needles in him (anti-inflammatory medicine). The vet didn’t find anything but thought since his airway wasn’t obstructed Mowgli may have either strained something coughing or grazed the inside of his food pipe eating. We need to observe him over the weekend and go back Monday if things persist when they will sedate him and do a more indepth exploratory. I really hate Mowgli being poorly, I’m always frightened about what might happen.
Anyway as a treat for him being good at the vet we took him to a very isolated beach on the outskirts of St. Davids where he wallowed in the pools and paddled in the sea. He loved it. Interestingly while we were out all of the plants he had been eating began evacuating from him and since coming home he seems to have picked up. I hope so.
