Santino Serval Goes to Vet
Santino Serval has been on Marin for the past year and eagerly takes his meds in meat each night, so when he didn't want to get up for Angie last night, she called Gale, who called Dr Wynn, resulting in a request to bring him in to Ehrlich Animal Hospital. Gale easily netted him as he felt to bad to put up a fight and she and Chris scooted him into the squeeze cage.
Upon arrival, Santino was sedated by Dr Danielson so that all would be ready to roll as Dr Wynn arrived. Heather Wade drew blood, did X-rays and helped with the sonogram. The liver and one kidney were enlarged so he is being treated with antibiotics until his pathology slide results come in, which probably won't be until Wednesday. During the sonogram Dr Wynn found fluid filled cysts in the liver and was able to aspirate some of the fluid for testing.
He had a temperature of 103 so it looks like his body is trying to fight this, which is a good indicator that it won't be cancer. That is what we are hoping, anyway.
