Twister Had His Surgery
I dropped off a very hungry little Twister at the vet this morning, for his castration surgery.
Last week I blogged about how they couldn’t do a regular neuter op ‘coz one of his testicles hadn’t descended and they had to do an op similar to a spaying in order to find the “missing” ball, as well as fix his teeth (his baby teeth hadn’t fallen out properly, making his breath stink something awful).
Today was the day.
I went to collect him at 5pm, and the vet told me they had fixed his teeth and given him a long-term antibiotic to help with the gum irritation where his baby teeth had been, and she gave me eye drops for when his eyes weep a little (in case I didn’t mention it before, his eyes aren’t properly formed either).
And she told me that the testicle that hadn’t dropped had never formed at all, so there hadn’t been one to find!
Our Twister certainly has the right name!
And the vet was very apologetic that neutering our Twister had ended up costing so much – we adopted him from the same vet, where he had been raised after being dropped there as a tiny 2 week old foundling!
Now he’s home, and a little sorry for himself, but he ate all his supper and I’ve put a water bowl on the floor for him ‘coz jumping up is still uncomfortable with the stitches in his tummy.
