Mom has been posting on Facebook about my megacolon and constipation issues. (Sorry we are talking about such icky stuff). I had to go to the vet again on Saturday and Sunday last weekend for enemas and a manual extraction under anesthesia to help me feel better. I did feel sooo much better - I ran around the house and played with my nip toys.
I also went for laser acupuncture on Tuesday this week to help me stay unconstipated. That was a very interesting visit but I didn't mind at all. I was scared when we got there so I hid in the sick hoping the vet did not see me.
In spite of all this I am still straining in the litter box and nothing is coming out...again. Mom has switched me to Miralax - hoping that that and the acupuncture will help me. If it doesn't then I may have to have surgery to remove the part of my colon that is not working. I really hope that it won't come to that.
