CHER UPDATE 🤞
Our friend, Cher, is still suffering from a mystery illness. We finally got all of the many test results back and she hasn't tested positive for anything. Her ultrasound did show she has thickening in her small intestines. This can be an indication of IBD, leukemia, or simply a side effect of a particularly nasty viral infection that has since resolved itself. The doctors don't want to rush to a biopsy, because they don't want to put Cher through an unnecessary surgery. She has been doing well the past few days and even began eating on her own, so the veterinarian wanted to wait 3-4 weeks to do another ultrasound and see if the thickening had gone away.
Today, Cher suddenly stopped progressing and took a step backward. She hasn't been feeling well and is refusing to eat on her own again. Since Cher still has the feeding tube, the veterinarian advised Cher's owner to keep an eye on her for a day or two. If the problem persists, they will need to take Cher back in for further care. At that point, a biopsy may be required.
Thank you all for your ongoing support of Cher as she goes through this journey. It's very frustrating to not have concrete answers. But, we are also lucky to have been able to save Cher's life in the short term. Without her hospital visits, she would have dehydrated or starved. At least she is alive and in the loving arms of her owner, as we continue to follow her journey.
Any donation you can make toward Cher's care is a life-saver. THANK YOU for caring about Cher.
