Vets and Health checks

OMB Mummy took me to the vets this week for My annual Myxomatosis/RVHD type 1 combi vaccination and while I was there the vet gave me a health check. He checked my teeth and gave me a feel around the tummy and a few other checks and that was all ok....but then he weighed me.....and that was not ok! It seems I have gained some weight a couple of hundred grams !Mummy explained that I haven't been very mobile for a while with my arthritis and that she has started me on my CBD Hemp oil which is now helping me alot. The vet was very interested to see how I was doing on it and mum told him I can use my litter tray,I want to play and go out in the garden and just generally more active.Anyway the Vet said that is good and should help me lose a bit of weight but he also said to cut back a bit more on my pellets too....Can you believe it The Vet is trying to starve me!!!!

So here I am playing in the garden!

Mr Mickey the Hedgehog is due to be delivered back to the garden on Tuesday so mummy made a new big feeding station and swapped it for the smaller one which she has moved to another part of the garden ready for Mr Mickey to use for a bit.The plane is to gradually phase the smaller one out and get them all using the same feed station as its huge!Its big enough to accommodate 3 or 4 hedgehogs depending on how big they are....all at the same time.And then the smaller one will get cleaned and changed back to a nest box.So here's mummys handy work...
See what I mean by Huge?!!!Anyway we are off on a road trip tomorrow for a vacation so one of our neighbours is going to feed the Hedgehogs so Lola,Reggie and Mr Mickey will be just fine!Even the birds will be taken care of with feeders, bird cakes and leftover hog kibble from each day plus they will have the bird bath topped up too!Anyway time for my close ups!

Sunday Selfies Update on the House of Speedy!

Well Hello There! It's been a crazy time with Easter and Tiny Tim the Baby Robin and waiting for Mr Mickey the Hedgehog to come back from the rescue. Well as for Mr Mickey we're still waiting,every time we think he's coming home the weather decides to do a screwy and turns to cold at night and to rough. Would you believe it we have woken up to a frost again this Morning?So it is supposed to be turning milder again with a wet spell but drying up at the end of the week so keep your paws and fingers crossed. We do have another Hoggie who has moved into the empty nest box....we think it's Miss lola who we think is a girl and of course Reggie is still visiting most nights for some dinner.So now we are caught up with all that now its time to get caught up with me.....
So We all know that I have a touch of Arthritis well it's been bothering me a bit more lately and making it harder to get in and out of my litter tray to the point I couldn't be bothered with using cause I was too sore and stiff.I still go out for walks but only little ones to free me up but then I have a nap and seize up again. So mum tried adjusting one of my litter trays which has helped but not totally successfully as well sometimes I lift my bottom a bit to high and well it goes over the top.....well you know when your back is turned you can't see where you're aiming right?Hehehehe well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!
Any way Mummy ordered me some Full Spectrum Hemp CBD oil as a lot of people use it one their pets for helping with this sort of thing and Humans use it for similar pains and other conditions. Now before anybody says anything this isn't made from the illegal drug cannabis and marijuana, it's made from the Hemp plant which is a different plant that doesn't contain the illegal stuff but Hemp is a related species of plant without the illegal stuff.Which means we can all use it legally for lots of ailments. And the best bit is it's completely natural and keeps the body and tummy balanced unlike Metacam from the no long term side effects for me! I have been having a drop mixed with water each day since Tuesday and I feel much happier, I'm not so sore and so much more active! I even want to come out and play with mummy and daddy like I used to and keep wanting to go out in the garden to play as well. And Mummy gave me back my other litter tray to try again. Mummy did say she might lower the front for me if she can because I do prefer my normal tray rather than my blue one, but we will see how I do for now cause that is going to be tricky to lower as the plastic is thicker. Any way here is some more photos of my last walk at Buckland abbey with Mummy.
