Jester had emergency surgery *warning graphic pic*
*warning graphic pic of Jesters most handsome penis, dont scroll down if you are sqirmish* LOL~
Jester has been battling bladder infections since early Feb. He went thru two differnt rounds of antibiotics. The first one didn't clear it up, but the second round did. Two weeks ago he had a urine check and the bacteria was gone, however he did have struvite crystals which the vet hoped would clear up on it's own once the bacteria was gone.
But over the weekend he started showing signs again (peeing in the house, dark urine and just acting "off" and I made the poor guy show on Sat, I feel so bad. I could tell he wasn't feeling well that day....) Anyway, I took him back to the vet Tues night for a recheck, and thru ultrasound they saw a big bladder stone (he had two previous ultrasounds that were clear). So surgery was scheduled right away for the next morning (yesterday)~
He was there all day and I picked him up at 6. He was miserable. His scar is horrible, about 4 1/2 inches. The vet actually removed 4 stones total. He has the most ridiculous cone. It's a soft fabric and waaaaay to big. I had to pin it smaller, but he still steps on it when he's walking and turns it inside out~what a pain in the @ss~
Please send him good healing vibes. He is so sad. He was just whimpering and crying this morning, broke my heart. The vet said best case scenario the surgery will solve the problem, but there are cases where the stones can come back.
I am posting a pic of his scar~~~ Don't look if you are squemish, and sorry for the penis pic!!
Paws.....and reflect on what life has given you~
