Under the Knife Again - Poor Duke

Another late night - early morning int he Hobbled Household. Too tired to post all the gory details so I'll copy/paste an email to my colleague this AM:

Leaking fluids in abdominal cavity. Emergency surgery last night. Not much sleep around here.


Duke was in such good spirits yesterday - then something happened. He was in pain (we thought choking - but not). Ran him to Animal Emergency. X-Rays showed fluid. Sample of fluid showed high white cell count and some sort of stuff that didn't belong there.

Emergency surgery last night found the inner sutures on abdomen had held up - but something had leaked - perhaps.

He's now back at vet, resting "comfortably".
