Otis is doing very well after his surgery! The exploratory laparotomy revealed a physical blockage of the small intestine. The vet was able to incise the small intestine and remove it successfully. The culprit appears to be a very hard piece of fecal-like matter. Fortunately, there are no dead tissues nor ruptures in the intestines. Otis is now on a morphine lidocaine ketamine drip to help manage pain overnight. He is thinking about how to thank everyone.
Special and heartfelt thanks go to Fortuna Veterinary Clinic for for the rescue accommodations, being a bull breed supporter, and providing pictures and updates!!!
