I feel so bad for Felix and you-I am praying.
Check into CareCredit, or whatever your vet has.

Thanks all, I did applied for and got approved for Care Credit; so it will spread out to 6 month with no interest, which certainly helps.

Talked to the surgeon and she said they are mainly worried about tissue dying in the swelling area which is prone to infection; and we definitely can't risk infection. She does also say it will add to the stress to have the surgery while everything is still bruised and swellen but the pros probably are bigger than cons. I guess I will trust the experts and we have him scheduled for surgery this afternoon and they will probably keep him over night for observation.

The surgery was pretty successful; the doctor said they took out a lot of blood clout. So the swelling definitely is more normal now; there is still some heavy bruises, but that's kind of expected. He recovered pretty well last night and I went to visit him this afternoon, he seems happy and relaxed The doctor is keeping him there tonight and will do some quick blood test tomorrow morning; if everything seems normal, I will be able to get him home tomorrow afternoon. Can't wait.

Again, thanks all for the good wishes.
