Moon Moon!! It's been a hot minute since we posted, heres the update about ripley's procedure today!!
The specialist performed a bronchoscopy today where they put a little camera down her tubes and looked around. .
Thankfully she doesn't have collapsed trachea or anything too serious, however they did find a moderate amount of yellow green mucous in her lungs so they did a wash and took some cultures. We are awaiting the results of that cytology and pathology report. .
For now the specialist thinks it's eosinophilic pneumopathy (AKA allergic airway disease) and will be on a steroid for now and further treatment will be assessed when they get results back. Likely it will be a lifelong issue we deal with. .
Everyone at Blue Pearl loved Ripley and in true Ripley fashion, they accidentally left her harness on top of her crate and she sucked it in and destroyed it. They were so freaked out they did a procedure to make sure she didn't ingest anything haha. They comped that procedure and bought us a new harness LOL.
Heres to hoping we are able to get back out on the trails soon! .
