Renal tumor in keet
I took my 10 yo keet to avian vet yesterday, he feels like he might have a renal tumor as his claw is clamped and he doesnt like to use the leg. He gave him a stroid shot and we'll evaluate after that.
Sammy is a rehome, has been given clean bill of health, good lungs and heart, good gram stain, But I noticed he gasps for air and bobs tail if stressed, the vet thinks he might have some fibrosis.
My question-do you think the gasps and tailbobs are his way of exhibiting pain? Are the renal tumors very painful? And how long might I have with him if this is a tumor? He is eating well.
