Thank you to all who were hoping that Mika pee-ed soon because this morning when we took him out, I swear, it lasted for at least 30 seconds! Your prayers worked!
His x-rays today showed that one leg is fine but the other dislocated leg cannot be fitted back into its socket.
|This diagram on the left shows a normal hip where the ball is in the socket.|
|This is what Mika's hip looks like now|
The vet hasn't been able to push the ball back into the socket.
One option is to get a second opinion and maybe try another vet to stick it in.
Another option is to remove the ball so that both bones are not connected.
However, he will still be limping.
The good news is that he can come home tomorrow!
He's such a tough boy and because we have to take him out to do his business, many cars have passed by him and he hasn't given them a second thought, which means that he isn't terrified of cars, considering he was hit by one... Which is great news.
