Paj has Ulcers
It's been a stressful week. Paj, who normally is the first to finish his food, became the last. And then he wasn't even finishing. My poor long-suffering vet came out twice, once on his day off. He recommended we put Paj in the clinic for a day or two for observation and tests. Yesterday they "scoped" him. With a fiberoptic endoscope, they were able to see ulcers where the esophagus meets the stomach. Poor baby! The good news is that it's easily treated with medication. Paj is home and doing pretty well, although a bit tired and subdued. I'm a bit tired and subdued too. We love our horses and want them to thrive. Or to quote Spock again, we want them to live long and prosper.
