This is Buddy's all-time favorite spot by the front door
When he gets to hot, he moves to the make-shift bed I created for Oliver
Then it's time for some more sun by the front door
Buddy went back to the vet yesterday (our regular vet rather than the emergency vet who saw him last). She looked him over and thoroughly went through the prior x-rays and blood work. In the end she admitted that she's not sure what's causing Buddy's troubles but suspected it's either a tumor in his intestine or his intestine might be inflamed. She gave us two options: 1) go to a specialist for endoscopy to look for a tumor or 2) try steroids for a possible inflammation. The problem with the steroid option is that it would take time to know if it's working and if it doesn't work then it would require another few weeks post-steroid use before they could do the endoscopy. That seems like a long time to wait.
We have elected to go right to the speciality vet internist at the nearby speciality clinic to see that they can figure out. We have worked with them before with Theo and Rose and know they do good work. So, now I'm in the process of trying to schedule an appointment for sooner rather than later. Thank you everyone who has been praying and purring for Buddy, it is greatly appreciated!
