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.
Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers!
