Leo needs surgery ASAP.

Update on poor Leo from the NYC ACC. He is at our specialty vet undergoing pre-op testing. What we know so far isn’t good. They have found a hole (fistula) in his mouth from lack of dental care. This means his nose & mouth are connected & that hole is dangerous & must be closed. The plan is to do that today while he is already under anesthesia for a CT scan of his MASSIVE tumor. He is also anemic so they are watching to see if he will need a blood transfusion. It remains too soon to know if the tumor can be successfully removed or not as it has blood vessels running through it. The CT scan will give the doctors more info.
