Simba has been diagnosed with leukemia, and is experiencing a confusing symptom. Day before yesterday Simba was allowed out for a field trip. When I went to retrieve him he was twirling around, biting his flank that was spasming, and running to and fro. He ran from me, not wanting to be picked up. (I suspected a bee sting,as he calmed down later and acted fine.) Last night when I picked him up he was in pain on the same flank. The flank was spasming and very tender to touch. I have already invested $500 for his care,and will continue to care for him BUT.....I'd like to hold out for when he really needs it. Any clue as to how I can tell if this is serious?
