Unfortunately, Iggy had a very bad day on Friday, he was in a lot of pain. Took him back to the vet on Saturday and he said that he is going to need surgery, but it is very costly. He gave me the information for the neurologist, which I will be calling sometime this week. For now he gave him pain pills to help keep him comfortable. He is to be crated for the next 3 weeks and only can come out to go potty. I'm so sad because I want him to have the surgery, but Michael said its too much money. I just can't see putting him to sleep. He will be 6 on Sunday, November 14, so I will be spoiling him with lots of treats that day! We have a tough decision to make when we return from our vacation.
That is really sad Lucy, I'm sorry. What type of surgery is it that he needs? I know that our vet has a Care Credit program where you can set up payments for treatments. That is an option.
