What a worry

Lovely ben has been really poorly.  He was rushed off to the emergancy vet at midnight on the 27th Dec as he was in such a lot of pain.  Sedation and Morphine, followed by an MRI scan then an operation.  He is home now and recovering but we are very lucky to still have him. 
His testicles were inside his stomach, one still a normal size, but the other the size of a grapefruit, it had twisted!  A few more hours and he may have died. 
Everyone is happy and relieved but angry that the insurance company refuse to pay the bill as they say it was an pre-existing condition.  I am not convinced a testicular tortion could be anticipated.  If you have a male dog, please check his wotsits

Edited to tell you that the insurance company have paid the bill, 5 months after the event but late is better than never.

  1. Ouch! Poor Ben. I hope you're going to go to the insurance ombudsman or whatever he's called.
