Poor Butterstick. First, he comes down with a case of eosinophilic colitis, which is basically a rare irritable bowel syndrome. But then, just to be absolutely SURE he has finished healing from it (because apparently the return of normal, er, intestinal habits wasn’t evidence enough), he had to have a colonoscopy. That’s a pretty bad day, right there.

Being cute and endangered doesn’t protect you from technical difficulties, apparently.

  1. Eosinophilic colitis is NOT a “rare irritable bowel syndrome”. Eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders are a separate disease entity unto themselves. There is no cure for any eosinophilic disease, and the poor panda’s colon would not “return to normal”. Eosinophilic disorders are lifelong chronic diseases that cause horrible suffering among those who have them. Please visit or to get your facts straight. Someone does not “come down with a case of eosinophilic colitis” or any other EGID for that matter. They are diagnosed and their lives are never the same. My daughter and all the others who suffer from these diseases would tell you whole-heartedly that this is not a “technical difficulty”.

  2. The WaPo article uses the phrase “recovered from,” which would have led me to believe it was a cured rather than managed disease. Thanks for the clarification.
