Question What would you do?

Ok, since Ernie went to the vet last week he's been doing better. He's gained almost an ounce in the last 10 days and he's begging for treats again (he wouldn't even take a raisin for a while there). I'm almost positive the drooling has stopped too. Now I have to make a decision on whether or not to go in and have him xrayed and all of that just to be sure what's going on. My problem is this, do I wait and see if he keeps improving, or do I take him in now (and not pay my $350 power bill ) What would you do? I'm very tempted to wait and see if he keeps improving, but I don't want to let the money situation make the decision for me...

I talked to the vet today, he said he would just wait and see as long as he continues to get better. So, that's what we're doing, but we're also starting a chinchilla dental savings just in case!

Becki,

I actually thought about this at work today, and made a decision before you posted that. If there was any indication Ernie was worse, or you still felt too unsure, you wouldn't have started this thread. You are a good Mom to your pets and know their behavior. You see Ernie isn't 100% but you see him getting better. I remember when Ernie had that cyst above his eye and you were applying for cc's like a mad woman for him. I hope he keeps getting better!

Becki, how is Ernie looking today? Any better? I'm keeping my fingers crossed for him.

The day before yesterday he was up 1.1 oz (about 30g) in a week and a half! He's much more active and begging for treats too I'm still keeping a close eye on him because "it just got better" seems too good to be true, but so far so good! Thanks for thinking about him!
