X-rays and blood tests

Posted on Monday 7th January 2013 @ 01:44 pm

At 7:30 on Tuesday Kukurika is booked in to the vets for a series of investigations. A physical examination last week identified a large bony lump along her spine between the  sholder blades. It seemed too large to be a vetebrae and much bigger than the bones above and below it. Kukurika will have x-rays taken of her spine and, if a vein can be accessed, a blood sample taken

The blood will be analysed to see if she has any particular deficiencies which may be causing her problem.

Kukurika will have anaesthetised for these procedures which is going to be very risky given her small size and poor development.
