Little Nemi was struck by a car last Friday after We took him to the park during a satellite dish install but when we let him out into the yard we didn\'t realize a gate was left open by one of the Installers and he ran into the street. Luckily, my neighbor who hit him helped us get him to the vet.
He has a compressed vertebrae in his rearmost quarters and he is having surgery today to move the vertebrae in place and hopefully relieve the pressure on his spinal cord. We are hoping the best that he doesn\'t become paralyzed and everything heals correctly. Surgery is new to us and a bit of a mystery. Right now he can stand and his tail is functional.
I hope we are doing the right thing for you little buddy! The whole surgery vs. non-surgery was a gut feeling we thought first no surgery but once it was explained in detail we think it would be a good shot to a more pain free life in the future. Luckily, both the surgeon and th vet said that the injury is far enough back where it missed causing major neurological damage.
GET WELL AND WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH!
