20th June 2011 - Mammary lump, probably due to pregnancy hormones. Hoping it will shrink now she's no longer feeding babies.
Monday 3rd July - Vet visit. Lump not growing quickly, so keep an eye on and return for removal if/when needed.
Wednesday 27th July - Lump visibly growing, so removed today. Doing fine.
Tuesday 20th December - Rattly chest. Started on Marbocyl.
Friday 23rd December - chest better. Continue meds until end of month.
Wednesday 2nd May - back on meds - wheezy again. Showing some signs of PT?
Thursday 18th May - discussed using Galastop with vet. Wait until pregnant doe moves out of same cage.
Wednesday 30th May - Severe neurological symptoms, plus bulging eye, so not a PT but probably a different tumour. Put to sleep. Sorry babe x.


Calm and sweet girl.
