At 7:30 on Tuesday Kukurika is booked in to the vets for a series of
investigations. A physical examination last week identified a large bony lump
along her spine between the sholder blades. It seemed too large to be a
vetebrae and much bigger than the bones above and below it. Kukurika will have
x-rays taken of her spine and, if a vein can be accessed, a blood sample
The blood will be analysed to see if she has any particular deficiencies
which may be causing her problem.
Kukurika will have anaesthetised for these procedures which is going to be
very risky given her small size and poor development.
