I'm so glad Archimedes is out of danger... thanks for the update.I just wanted to give an update on my sully...
After a night at the vet and a procedure, Archimedes came home the other night. The vet diagnosed him with a bladder stone. It was stuck not too far into his cloaca, so they were able to sedate him, break up the stone, and extract the pieces without doing anything super invasive. They did need to trim the edge of his carapace to get better access, so I ended up with a little souvenir.
He’s slowly returning to normal behavior and finally ate something today after having no interest in food the day after he came home. They gave me an ointment to apply daily to where they cut his shell, so the home care isn’t too bad. I’m cautiously optimistic that everything is going to be okay, but he gave me a hell of a scare (and a huge vet bill).
I hope Link never has such an issue. It could have been fatal if I hadn’t been paying attention and got him to a vet ASAP.
