I took Sasha to the vet today because she's been acting sick. She doesn't want to eat her breakfast about every third day and then vomits 30 min. later. Sometimes she has bathroom issues and I discovered that she had peed on the kitchen floor in the middle of the night. I found this strange because Sasha doesn't have accidents like that and the two little ones have been wearing "diapers" overnight.
X-rays were taken, blood work was done and a total health evaluation performed. She has several issues. First of all, she is constipated so bad that it's pushing on everything. This also is creating gas pockets and pressure on her bladder, which explains the pee accidents. The second issue is the fact that she is in pain (even though she's not showing it) and about four of her vertebrates are in bad shape. The last and most horrible of the problems could be a possible tumor on her spleen. Since she's so constipated, she needs to go back in for more x-rays on Friday, after 24 hours of fasting and several days of stool softeners. Hopefully it turns out to be nothing, but she may need surgery to get her spleen removed.
On the positive side, she's acting totally normal and wants to play. The news is not great, but it seems to be fixable. I'm keeping my fingers crossed! Keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
