As I mentioned in the last post Kylo was the recent recipient of emergency vet services. His tendency to eat ponytails or anything of a stringy nature resulted in surgery. A couple days after chewing off a strap from one of my tank tops he became lethargic, wasn’t eating and vomiting a lot. When he didn’t improve after a few hours we decided to bring him to the vet where they took X-rays and determined he had suspicious masses in his intestines. During the surgery they noticed his pancreas was inflamed and determined he was suffering from pancreatitis.
By the following day, high on pain meds, he was happy as a clam. He would spend time making a nest in his blankets then talk to all the staff and rub against them, purring like a little machine. He came home with a cone that, surprisingly, he did not object to wearing even as he started feeling better. He ran around the house with it on for days.
Unfortunately we had to lock him in a bedroom while we were at work because Rosa wanted to roughhouse all day long and Kylo was happy to oblige. Not wanting to risk the stitches coming out we had to keep them separated and kept an eye on him through the pet cam.
Thankfully he is 100% healed today and back to his
normal crazy self!
