Two days after being admitted to the animal hospital, Ziggy was doing much better and has been sent home with a lot of medicine. Three different kinds in fact. I think that no matter what is wrong with him, he's got some kind of medicine to fix him. And from the way he acts, you'd think he'd never felt bad. He's very energetic and happy to be home.
As for his vet bill, due to his amazing healing properties, and the great work of the e-clinic staff, Ziggy had a shorter stay than expected, so his vet bill is "only" $600. And if you're able to donate anything to help pay for it, Ziggy will be eternally grateful (as will I).
