So yesterday I took Kaiser to Vets Now Manchester for 8am to have a bronchoscopy. When I got there the vet said they would do a CT scan to confirm the foreign body and then would try to remove it. The vet said this would depend on how long it had been there as if it had caused irreversible damage to the lung then they may have to remove the lung lobe which the vet said would be major surgery.

After his consult I then had to go to work till 7pm and waited to hear from them. I got a call around 12 to say that he was in recovery and that they had discovered he didn’t have a foreign body at all and when they did the bronchoscopy they found that what they thought may have been a foreign body was actually a localised pneumonia. They sent the camera further down to check for any tumours or suspicious looking nodules but they found nothing other than inflammation to the bronchi. They took samples of the mucus and have sent off various tests but all in all it was good news and the vet was happy that it was a localised pneumonia rather than a raging one. The vet said that he felt I should be able to collect him later on after work, but I got a call at 4 to say he was struggling manoeuvring without the support of a sling, they felt it was a bit of osteoporosis pain and wanted to give him an injection of metacam to see how he got on and asked me to call at 6:30pm to check he was ok to be discharged or if they wanted to keep him overnight. Thankfully when I called they said I could pick him up, so I finally got to see him at 7:45pm it felt like the longest wait of my life lol.

So the plan for now is to continue on the antibiotics he’s been put on 3 times a day with restricted exercise. Once the test results come back they may need to alter his meds but we’ll see what they say when they call. For now I’m just relieved it wasn’t as bad as it could have been and he can hopefully start to recover.
