Subsequent to giving Ike the medication, his condition ultimately improved and the Olivers had the option to bring him back home from the vet.

"The vet emergency clinic called to say Ike was off of oxygen support and was prepared to return home! Hearing he could return home resembled a fantasy," Becky composed on Facebook, as per the Everyday Mail.
