In the past few weeks Mickey has had 3 bouts of hematuria (blood in the urine). After a trip to vet's and an abdominal ultrasound, we found out that he had a bladder stone and BPH. The vet recommended surgery for the stone removal and neutering. However due to his health problems (age, heart murmur, and seizures) I was referred to a surgical specialist. She has cleared him for surgery so that's reassuring but I'm still a nervous wreck! My "baby" will be 15 years old on 2/4 and I hope this will improve his quality of life for a few more years! He's scheduled for surgery on the 29th. I am fortunate that this facility has special suites where you can stay with your pet overnight as they recover - so I'm definitely taking advantage of that! Please send some positive vibes for Mickey for an uneventful surgery and rapid recovery! Mickey sends his hugs and kisses ... Thanks everyonel!
