Anakin had a set back today
:( This afternoon he was trying so hard to poop and couldn't get it out. Instead it was all forming a big ball blocking him up. I took him back to our vet and they had to cut out the stitches and do an enema on him to clean him out. After that, the prolapse was all back out again and very swollen. They kept Ani for the afternoon and he had another surgery to put new stitches in place. They checked his urine while he was under for surgery and found it had more bacteria in it than normal, so he is on antibiotics for that. He also still has pain meds that I give him twice a day. I picked Anakin up and brought him home. As soon as I got him out of the carrier, I could see what I thought was the red of the prolapse there. So I brought him right back. Luckily, I live about 5 minutes away from our vet. She looked at his behind and said it was just the swelling coming out, not the prolapse. She put something else on him to reduce the swelling and also something to numb back there. They also decided to give him some fluids to help keep him hydrated and hopefully keep everything soft. So I'm back home with Ani, he is sleeping in the bathroom. I just took these pixs a minute ago. My poor baby looks so sad :( I feel so bad for him. I hope things start to turn around. I take him back to be rechecked first thing in the morning. I hope he has an easy night and just sleeps.
