Just a quick update. Bobby's operation was aborted shortly after it started. It was found that Bobby's valves were blocked to the extent that the vet's forceps could not be inserted to remove the heart worms as planned. Instead, the vet tapped Bobby's abdomen and drained over 10 litres of fluid from him. Bobby has to be on heart worm medicine for the rest of his life. He also has to undergo the draining process twice a week. His kidney was found to be weak and he will require kidney supplements. The next three weeks will be crucial for Bobby. A kind volunteer has agreed to foster Bobby for this critical period. We hope to bring you good news the next time round!
