I'm sorry to report that BiBi has not been well lately.
His right eye has been swollen for the last week due to
suspected tooth root infection. He has been to the vet
twice in the last few days and was issued with antibiotics.
It is quite challenging to feed BiBi tablet medication
and the only way to do it is to smash the pill into powder
form and rub it on his favourite food like carrot and apple.
I hope that it is indeed Retrobulbar Abscess which is
causing the eye to push outwards. His vet said if the
antibiotics doesn't work, it could mean something more
serious like the dreaded c**cer pushing his eye. Poor BiBi
will get X-ray or Ultrasound next week if his condition
does not improve...

Meanwhile, BiBi, please don't jump around and enjoy
the slightly weird tasting apple!

" Woohoo! Hey folks, I've been eating apples and
carrots everyday! Wonder what's the occasion??? "

oh that's gotta hurt! get well quickly Bibi!
You have my sympathy on the pills dilemma - had the same problem with Pooch! I find hiding the pill inside a small morsel of soft food is the way to go - one taste and it's usually gulped down before the hidden pill is discovered as there's no need for chewing. Does Bibi like any soft foods, e.g. fruit? Tomato? Banana?

Oh dear..... sorry to hear this :(
The eye looks indeed painfully swollen.
All my heartfelt wishes for a fast recovery, Bibi!
