I'm used to vet expenses being a little more in Chicagoland. However, after calling around, that price was high for the city, too.
Either way, we went through with the surgery on Monday. I trust that vet and they have a excellent reputation. So, for us, it was worth the extra cost to have it done quickly and done well.
More importantly, Mochi made it through surgery and he's recovering now! He seems to be a little more active today, though a bit nippy. He's probably in pain. I am making him mashed sweet potatoes (his favorite) and, yesterday, that is all he would eat. He has about 15 staples up the side of his tummy and it looks painful. I'm hoping he heals quickly!
Also, we are having to house him separate from his brother. I feel so bad. It's obvious the miss each other and I'm worried that the 10 days apart will cause problems when we try to put them back together again. Right now, their cage are pushed right up against one another.
Thanks for the advice!
