The specialist has been in touch & it's not cancer!
Unfortunately, Bud does have severe IBD/Chronn's disease (there's extensive scarring in his stomach & small intestine). The usual treatment would be steroids, but he was put on steroids at the beginning & they didn't help. So, the plan now is to keep him on his special diet & to try him on some different medication. We need to try & improve the diarrhoea & help him regain some weight. He's got to go back to the hospital in two weeks.
So, we're not out of the woods by any measure, but at least I feel like he's got more of a fighting chance with this.
Thanks again for your support, everyone!
Buddy sends big kisses!
