bru did ok with his surgeries today...only 5 extractions but the cyst was apparently very large so he has quite a big incision on his back hip. he was still pretty out of it at the end of the day so he is spending the night at the clinic and i will pick him up tomorrow on my lunch break.
maybe's eye is healing well...we are to continue with 4 times a day antibiotic eye drops followed by the tear gel 10 minutes later. the vets want to see her again in a week to reassess the healing.
esther was taken into the vets today, she had quite a lot of blood in her urine. she had a urine spec and bloodwork done and is started on antibiotics while we wait for the test results.
both she amd maybe really enjoyed their stop over at mcdonalds on the way home. maybe ate half a cheeseburger cuz she is tiny and esther had a cheeseburger and maybe's other half cuz she is big.
black bart is still in a cage, he looks a bit perkier tonight so i think his double antibiotics are maybe starting to kick in. thankfully he has kept his appetite and is chowing down on his second can of food today.
pops is not good. he is down in his stall and in a lot of pain tonight. i called the vets and i am pretty sure that unless he is remarkably better tomorrow, that we will have to euthanize. the vet said to go ahead and give him another whopping dose of pain meds tonight and see if that helps him be more comfortable. i will check him until i think he is feeling better and if we don't get there, i will call again for an emergency visit to give him something stronger to last him thru out the night.
i am not willing to risk pops going thru a week of unremitting agony in the hopes of some not possible miracle. we cannot fix his foot and his leg...5 different vets have seen him and all had the same opinion...keep going with him while he is feeling good and let him go when suffering begins and life becomes a burden to him.
janice told me today the cows surrounded pops while he laid out in the field. percy stood with his head down touching noses with him and emily stood with her head held lightly upon his hip. she said pops was not worried or distressed that they were so close with him and they were obviously carefully comforting him. those cows are the most compassionate of creatures..they know pops is not well and they care.
i am hoping for an overnight miracle but it may not come and if it doesn't, i want pops to be free.
