A little update on Murphy's condition...The ultrasound showed an area on his small intestine that was very irritated and the specialist said that there is a very high possibility that there is a foreign object stuck in there. We went ahead with surgery only to be told that nothing was found stuck in his small intestine. Part of his small intestine was extremely irritated. The vet took tissue samples to be sent in for a biopsy tomorrow morning (it will take a week to get the results). Since the emergency clinic closes at 8:00 am on Monday morning, we have to transfer Murphy to our vet's clinic tomorrow morning.
Bottom line is that we still do not know what is wrong with Murphy and until we get the biopsy results there is nothing we can do.
Anyone encountered a similar condition? Any ideas what it might be? The vet said it could be Irritable Bowel Disease or bunch of other things.
