I'm really surprised (and happy) at the speed in which Tijger just devoured her chicory! In the last weeks she has been really slow and had to have two dentals to get her teeth corrected... #guineapig she also had a chiropractic treatment looks like that is starting to pay off...Een video die is geplaatst door Mieke (@pandameisje) op
This was last wheekend, our vet just checked her teeth on the friday before and said the teeth looked pretty good. It was then almost 3 weeks since her last dental correction. The previous 3 weeks after her dental correction looked a lot worse, her teeth had overgrown already causing her a lot of trouble eating food. This was also about 9 days after her first chiropractic treatment... at first I thought that the treatment hadn't helped her that much, but after hearing from our vet her teeth looked pretty good and then seeing this... Tijger eating at almost normal speed... I think the treatment might be working after all! *Fingers crossed*
Okay, so we have good news! Last wednesday we went to the vet again that does chiropractic treatments. He said her molars looked normal, and her jaw muscles were hardly causing any problems anymore. He is one of the 3 vets in the Netherlands to do these chiropractic treatments on guinea pigs. What he does is loosening her jaw muscles by manipulating them, because they were somehow locked and caused her to not be able to move her jaw from left to right. On our second visit he was really happy to find Tijger had much improved. He gave her another chiropractic treatment to loosen the jaw muscles again, then he said he did not think she needed another treatment, as she was doing so well!
I asked him if I could take a pigture of him and Tijger for the blog. This is the result.
Tijger was vandaag weer even bij @dierendoktershaarlem voor tweede #chiropractie behandeling. Goed nieuws t gaat stukken beter met d'r kaak en kiezen waren nog kort! #cavia #haarlem / good news Tijger was at vet again today for her second chiropractic treatment. Good news she has improved a lot and her molars were still normal (not overgrown)! #guineapig #chiropractorEen foto die is geplaatst door Mieke (@pandameisje) op
Doesn't she look happy? When I had first visited this vet, my boyfriend asked if Tijger screamed, and she didn't. It seems like this is not an annoying or painful treatment. She would just make some mild noises, while the vet worked. I am glad this has improved her teeth problem, as this definitely beats going to the vet for dental work every month! (Also proves to be a lot cheaper than having dental work done). Since last week she has kept her weight (she was down to 780 grammes), and even gained a bit! She is now over 800 grammes again, which is still not very big, but with the rate she keeps eating and gobbling stuff up I think she will get (much) heavier!
Have a great wheekend,

He won't let us go out on a mission as he says that we are too noisy so we have been allowed to get as far as the sofa and we are going to tell you about Dermisol.
"Hey Mimi, where do you think that you are going? If you can't sit still for a photoshoot then you are going to be Agent Diva 2 and I will be No.1" says Lulu.
"If being an Agent means that we get paid in chicory, then I am all for it," says Lulu. "Maybe we can even learn to be quiet and sneak up on humans."
"Slave is going on holiday next week so we have time to practice," says Lulu. " We might be able to take a picture of our pigsitter."
" How was that, Tyrion?" "Not bad for the first time," he replies, " but Mimi could do better at sitting still!"
"It is alright for you, Tyrion. You are a Peruvian and they always sit still".

So Mummy has been reading the above murder mystery and right at the end there is a mention of Guinea Pigs
"Cats, rabbits and Guinea Pigs in baskets please"
We are pleased to see that the humans while expecting to be flooded any minute are still thinking about the most important things namely us.
