Hi...wow, what an interesting case. I think our doctors in the Ask A Vet forum would love to hear about this. When you get a chance, cross post your question in either the general health forum or the pediatrics forum within the Ask a Vet Expert section. Also, any pictures you might have would be helpful. I am sure that among our 30+ veterinarians, someone can provide a good answer for you.
