April Showers

I wasn't able to post a photo every day in March.  Please accept my apologies.

Last week Vante was having litterbox issues.  She was scooting, trying unsuccessfully to defecate and licking her bottom.  She was obviously very uncomfortable and her bottom was red and inflamed.  So, I took her to the vet and after x-rays and an exam it was deemed that she had to have her anal glands expressed. 

Needless to say Vante didn't appreciate or enjoy the experience.  She expressed her opinions extremely loudly during the entire process.  But afterwards she was back to her old self.

I'll just have to keep an eye on it and she'll need to have her glands expressed every once in a while.  It depends on the animal but it could be as often as once a month or every 3-4 months.

But other than that slight hick-up Vante is doing great!
