Daily Record: Timmy Update

So here’s the Timmy update:

His temp was a little elevated and his breathing was rough, so after the physical exam they did x rays to check for internal damage or spinal damage. They found all sorts of abnormalities on his spine, which is actually normal, considering his Manx with Manx Syndrome status. It’s sort of twisted like a pretzel.

They found a spot where the vertebrae don’t line up, leading to arthritis, which is most likely causing all of his pain after being tossed around like a chew toy. There’s another spot at the tail end of his spine that could potentially be the result of the attack, but the vet thinks most likely not, and given his improved walking since last night, I agree.

So essentially, he’s just shaken, stressed, and in pain. They gave him a shot for the pain, I have calming spray for the stress, and he’ll have to take it easy for a few days.It’s funny though. He’s still a bit sedated from the x ray. We got home and he looked like he wanted to jump onto my bed, so I lifted him very gently, and he was asleep before I even set him down. Poor brave soldier.

Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers!
