Default Re: White opaque discharge

Well, she's past two years of age, so I'm thinking infection. Too bad, since she did recently go through weeks of injected antibiotics for a tooth infection.

I should add that she did just recently go through a food change, switching toward a more healthy blend of Reaper's food list entries. This just wasn't the kind of result I would expect if she was having stress.

I guess I can't rule out upset tummy. I mean, I saw the stuff smeared on her fur, but supposing it was thrown up?

For now, I'm going to treat it like discharge. If an infection is all it is, then that doesn't scare me so much; Oona's a cancer survivor so there's always the worry it came back elsewhere or actually did spread before they got rid of the original tumor.
