Toby came home from the vet today! I was worried he would have to spend a 3rd night there, but here we are. I am closely monitoring his behavior, from what/how much he eats/if he can keep it down, to when/if he has a bowel movement, and some other specifics.
The veterinarian told me today that we are able to put off surgery for now; we'll see where these new lifestyle changes lead us, and hope that we can put it off forever. She explained to me that the surgery is very risky, so I'm going to do everything I possibly can to avoid it.
The money that has been raised for him was put towards his vet bill, which consisted of 1 day and 2 nights of hospitalization, 4 enemas, specialty food, and various IVs and medications. The total for this visit came to 1,012.88. The donations that have been coming in have made a WORLD of difference. It is the thing that has allowed me to give Toby the care that he needs. I cannot thank everybody enough for this.
Of course, I will continue to update regularly. Thank you everyone <3
EDIT/UPDATE 1: He is staying a 2nd night at the hospital. I will need your help now more than ever. He is not in a life-threatening condition, but it is becoming more and more clear that he will need surgery.
***I would like to thank everybody that has donated so far from the bottom of my heart, I cannot express how helpful this is. You have all been extremely generous, and I am eternally grateful***
That said, I still need help. I’ve covered roughly $700 of this bill, which is only a portion, but at this point I am collecting funds for his surgery. Thank you all again for sharing/interacting with this post, and of course for your donations. Toby and I owe you his life, and my sanity.
