PLEASE HELP CHIO- CT SCAN NEEDED Chio has been admitted into ICU. He seemed under the weather and prompted a visit to the local veterinarian. Upon examination, we were told that he needs to be rushed to an emergency hospital because his health was failing. He is now admitted into ICU in Manhattan and he is stable but his ailment is unknown.
Chio presented suddenly with extreme swelling near his neck. He seemed lethargic and had trouble walking. He was rushed to an Emergency Hospital where a complete line of diagnostics is underway to determine what is causing Chio to swell. His bloodwork came back in normal ranges, which meant further diagnostics were necessary. A CT scan was needed and we still don’t have definitive answers. One lymph node is abnormally large and the surrounding nodes are bigger than normal also. The cause is unknown. A biopsy of the swelling needs to be assessed and when cytology comes back in the morning we are hoping to have more answers. Thankfully they are keeping him comfortable in ICU and we hope to have a clearer concept of Chio’s medical scenario in the morning.
