Belinda,I hope the vet finds something definitive to help your sweet Bailey too. I hope he adjusts to the feeding tube and stops that hissing. It's so hard when you hate to stress them out, but you have to take care of themtBelinda Sauro [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: Hi All,Bailey's number

Belinda, I'm so happy to hear Bailey made it through his anesthesia. I was so worried about him. I know he's not out of danger by any means, but at least now he has a chance to keep some weight on while you figure out more ways to help him. I don't blame him one little bit for being upset!

Belinda, I'm sorry, I thought he had already gone through the procedure. It must be torturous to have to wait, but I do understand waiting for someone you trust. It's the same for human health care too. I'll never get used to the fact that people are made to wait for appointments when they
