Test results from the vet - Xiombarg has elevated levels of some liver enzymes that could indicate pancreitis or something like that, so she is now on a course of antibiotics. In pill form, sigh. Pill #1 went the way of all flesh after an hour of my trying to get it down her throat. After consulting with the vet and finding out the pills were crushable, Pill #2 was at least partially consumed with the addition of some tuna fish. With luck, Pills #3 onward will follow suit.
And so, I'm off to tie up loose ends at work.
