WEll, she is staying tomorrow, as they are hoping to do the other tests then - would be a gastroscopy, colonscopy, biopsies and possible blood tests - only prob is the insurance company are quibbling at the moment, and Â£1200 is slightly out of my budget with everything else she has cost so far (and i am up to 15% of the total costs on her leg now, she is over the threshold), so need to speak to them in the morning, and hope htey like my explanation of why they know nothing about it (costs for it so far are Â£51.75, excess is Â£50 and vets charge Â£3.85, i would be out of pocket to claim!!!). He thinks the problem is with her styfal (sp?), he has taken some samples and they hope to know if it is something simple like an infection or something more in the next couple of days, he did mark it as urgent, so there is a possibility of it being back tomorrow. he did mention it could require surgery depending on test results, but I am not sure I would put her through it, especially as the x-rays did show signs of osteo-arthritic changes in both her hips, the right one being worse (odd as she limps on the other one), cos she is going to have issues with her legs regardless.
