It went well - thanks for asking! Olly had the surgery on Nov. 30th, and was up & about (& eating) when I took him home later that day. The doctor had prescribed Baytril for 14 days - something I was worried about. Maybe she gave him antibiotics because I was really concerned about possible infection. Anyway, I noticed a change in him the next day (Thursday). He was sleeping all the time, not moving around much (if at all) and totally lost his appetite. Early Friday, I rushed him back to the doctor, who said everything seemed ok but that he might be reacting to the Baytril. He's been his old self since I stopped the pills! He's running around & purring at both Ginger & myself! He's eating & drinking normally, too. I'm going to wait until Christmas before putting them together. For now, I'll keep changing the bedding & feeding him lots of organic veggies (rich in Vitamin C)!
