Cassidy

Cassidy is at the vet. He apparently has an obstruction (or a partial one) and they're trying to get him to pass it with hourly applications to Vaseline, which acts as a laxative and can often move the foreign body (usually rocks)out through the intestinal tract. Did not happen yesterday. Waiting to see if he has to go in to surgery.

Alice sends her love and sympathies. She has a nice scar from eating toy stuffing and bark (probably as a by-product of poop) and the stitches are just about ready to come out now.

Aw, poor Alice!

I just got back from the vet and gave the go-ahead for surgery. My vet thinks it could be pancreatitis also. Cassidy's in terrible shape.

I sent Cassidy to the Bridge. In surgery, it was discovered he had multiple bowel perforations and peritonitis. Very poor prognosis, so I told the vets to let him go while he was under anesthesia.

My beautiful blue boy.
