PURRS, PLEASE, FOR DANTE

Dante needs your purrs right now.  He's in the animal hospital due to severe constipation.  The vet said this isn't something they could likely resolve in just one day because it's massive (like Dante himself).

Of course they will be doing blood tests, X-Rays, etc., too, to check him out in general, so we hope they don't find anything else that is wrong when all is said and done.


Apparently an enema alone would not rectify the problem.  They will have to try stool softeners first, and it may be necessary for Dante to go under anesthesia and have them removed manually.

We are hoping for the best-case scenario, and would appreciate all of your PAWSitive thoughts and healing vibes for Dante.

Comments are open.
