I am taking Yoshi to the vet first thing this morning to leave him for 24 hours for an IV flush of his system :-( He is still in pain and he is flexing his abdomen muscles and resisting when you try to press so it is still coming from the GI tract :-(. To make matters worse, they took blood again yesterday to make sure everything was still looking good and he has a huge Hematoma that apparently continued to bleed? I dont know much about these things but it just worried me all night long. Blood was taken at 3:30 and there was nothing but the little scab at 6:30 and then by 8:30 it looked like this

I know it looks like a bruise from the picture but It was black and shiney and you could tell it was spreading.
At 10:30 pm it looked like this

and at Midnight it looked like this


He has bruised a little one other time in the past but It had never spread and gotten worse and darker as the day went by. Freaked me out to say the very least...

My goodness...poor Yoshi! I hope they're able to figure out what is making him feel so horribly & are able to make him feel better. That is very odd he got such an awful hematoma from the needle as well. We'll be thinking about you guys...

How is Chibi doing btw?

Chibi is fine. It took him awhile to have a bowel movement but he hasnt acted sick at all through the whole thing.

yikes! Oakley had a bad reaction to having blood taken there too...I wonder if its common? She itched at it so much she made it bleed and then the brusing got black and yellowish. Very weird, but I hope he's okay hun :(

I'm so sorry Michelle. :( I know you are worried sick. Bless his heart. I do hope that the IV flush gets him back in tip top shape. We are sending our best wishes, thoughts and prayers. The hematoma will probably heal up fine. They usually heal by themselves, but your Vet may decide to drain it. Please keep us posted. (((Hugs)))

Poor little guy. I hope he gets feeling better. Has the vet ran a Pancreatitis test on him (it's separate from normal blood tests) usually an in house snap test that you can have results in minutes.

Thanks guys! Vet called and said that he is doing well and it appears that his little abdomen is softening up some so hopefully that is a good sign. Yes they did a test for the Pancreatitis.

He didnt scratch at the Hematoma at all, in fact it didnt appear to be sore to him or he was so concentrated on the other pain that it didnt matter. It just did that on its on with him sleeping?
