Customer reply replied 2 years ago
They say he doesn't have good movement in his intestines.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
His HR is good and his MM is pink. He is comfortable on meds, etc. he is alert. They were not able to do resect because so much was severely bruised.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago

Hello,
I am sorry to hear what happened to your dog. How is he doing today?
I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. I am sorry you did not get help from another expert sooner. I just came online and saw your question.
How is he doing? Do you still need help? What is your vet telling you about his chances?
