The vet diagnosed either vestibular syndrome or a stroke. She gave Fern two injections, an anti-inflammatory drug and an anti-nausea drug - and wanted to see her again this morning. Although the same vet did see Fern briefly, the consultation was with another, who agreed with the diagnosis and recommended support care over the weekend. So Fern is now in hospital (at another vet surgery) on an IV drip. They will possibly repeat the anti-nausea injection and try to tempt her to eat something; a little chicken, maybe.

All the makings of an expensive weekend.

Meanwhile, I have finished the redesign of the Friends of Withdean Park website, here.

Sending a good word up for Fern. May she recover completely.

Joining with Sarge with good thoughts for fern.
And I'm sorry I ever thought her name was Pebbles.

Thank you both. And Skip, I never told her about the name thing but she wouldn't have minded. Like my old granny, she doesn't mind what people call her as long as it's not late for dinner!
