Pawco came in a couple weeks ago, very sick. He had eaten a bone the night before from a roast, and the next day was vomiting and extremely weak. Some of the pieces of bone had become lodged in his ileum-the portion of intestine just in front of the colon. He ended up having to have his entire ileum removed, along with a portion of his colon. He has recovered very well! Because the ileum is the only place that the body absorbs vitamin B, he will need to have monthly injections of this vitamin from now on. But, his prognosis is good and we are happy for him and his very sweet and loving owner.
