Another place I tried calling is Hunter Veterinary, but their line is busy.
Okay we called and are going to take him in tomorrow morning. Is there anything I can do to help him while we wait?If you're gonna do it, you need to call them and let them know that your friend called them and told you that you needed to call to confirm dropping him off. You need to do this now, not tomorrow.
His crop is really massive nowGlad you were able to make the appointment. . In the meantime, the best thing to do is to keep him in a warm and quiet place with access to food and water.
Hunter vet was my second option and when we called them they said they can't see him until tomorrow at like noon. The appointment for tomorrow seems like my only option nowDo not massage his crop at all. If you don't want to give him food, that's okay, but do give him water. Call Hunter Vet and see if they can see him today. 509.327.9354 (I tried but could not get through).
DO *NOT* cancel tomorrow's apointment.
Idk I think he's a bit worse, he keeps doing a gagging/swallowing thing and throwing his head backwards but he is drinking a lot of water. His skin on his head feels really weird it's like playdough. It's hard for me to find a way to pick him up but I'll figure something out. I really hope the vets can help him, it's making me feel terrible seeing him like this.How is he this morning? Good luck at the vet, and be very careful moving him if his crop is still full of liquid.
So I just got him home about 30 mins ago.Update?
