The vet had to wait to operate as Jumping Boy's liver was badly damaged. His front leg was broken in 2 places and his hip joint fractured.
After 2 weeks at the vet we went to collect him today. But he wasn't ready cos he couldn't stand on either of his broken legs. He had to lean against his pen on his 2 good legs whilst holding both his front and back legs up. I saw his thigh was very swollen although the vet explained it had been much worse.
The vet who said he could come home wasn't at the clinic. Thankfully another vet who's also treating Jumping Boy was. He agreed that further laser treatment on both legs is necessary for another week. Jumping Boy needs to practice standing on all four legs too. His healing is going to take much longer than we anticipated.
I was so sorry for Jumping Boy who isn't enjoying his cage confinement. I bought him bone chews to keep him occupied. He wagged his tail for the first time during our visit and quickly got busy chewing. The packet is with the vet!
Three weeks and Jumping Boy is recuperating slowly after a long haul of laser treatment.
Jumping Boy's vet bill so far is very high due to the complexity of the breaks and his liver damage. 25,220 baht which is $845.405 and he still needs more treatment. If any of our fantastic supporters are able to help us pay this bill we'd be so grateful.
