We had to euthanise Cruise today. He was showing no improvement so we darted him to bring him into the clinic for examination and an ultra sound, as we thought that his problems were complications due to his history with testicular cancer discovered last year. Unfortunately, the examination revealed a huge elongated tumor along his spermatic cord which we think had blocked his ureters causing an enlarged bladder. There was also a large fluid build up in his stomach. Sadly euthanasia was the only decision to be made. We will conduct a full necropsy on him tomorrow morning.
Chewbaaka is stabilising a bit. He ate small amounts of food during the day and we got a good fecal sample from him last night. We continue to be hopeful; however his legs are still very damaged and he continues to be very unstable and sore on his rear legs. In addition, an eye problem may be manifesting, possibly caused by trauma.
