Eli underwent surgery yesterday for Cryptorchidism..... He had one small retained testicle and underwent abdominal surgery as the second testicle could not be found. This could be due to his condition Neospora that the second testicle may never have developed. The plan will be for him to undergo tests in 6-8 weeks to see how much testosterone is in his body and take it from there...
Eli was also suffering with his paw on his good hind leg and had something going on which the vets were able to explore whilst he was under GA.. It appeared he had a couple of ingrowing hairs which had made him very sore resulting in an infection so this was flushed and cleaned..
This young boy is comfortable albeit sore and tender and will spend the next couple of weeks recovering.
