scooby saga update
well, after the joy of having scoob as pet of the month, things took a turn for the worse.
he was sick on sunday arvo, didnt touch his biscuits on sunday evening, monday morning or on monday evening. i got a bit worried, especially considering his history (cancer) so they had a quick look and took a blood sample. turns out his red cell count was down (thanks leukemia). but they wanted to keep him overnight. next morning they were checking for lumps and found one in his stomach. they opened him up and found a huge tumour on his spleen. his spleen should normally weigh 200-300g. his weighed 1kg. thecancer treatment he has been having had killed the tumour, but it was going rotten, hence scoob being sick. well, they removed the spleen and he came home tonight, thursday. when he went in on monday he weighed 19.6 kg, and 17.6 tonight. he has had his tummy completely shaved, and has more stitches than i can count.
but once again, he has bounced back better than the vets expected. he is a strong willed little fella, but very loving and gentle. i truly hope we can kick this cancer square in the nuts.
anyway, a HUGE thank you to morley vet centre again. whilst the bill was big, there were a number of items we werent charged for, but more than this, they care.
