Rose,
Sorry to read about Teddy Bear. Perhaps your hubby is right in his decision to stop all the tests though. It adds extra stress to an already ill animal and, as you well know, gets to be expensive. Maybe it's just the right time to spend some 'loving time' with TB and get the goodbyes out and take the final step to end his suffering. I know how hard it is, but it is better than making him suffer so that you can hold onto him just a little longer.

May the thoughts and prayers of your CR family help to ease your burden and know that we are here for you always.

Gordon

CelticRose, I am so sorry about Teddy Bear. It took me a week to say goodbye to Tilly. I spent all of my time with her when I wasn't working. I know it wasn't fair to her, but when it was time I knew. At the Vet's office, I held her in my arms and bawled like a baby. Didn't care what anyone else thought. My heart was breaking. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

CR,
Just know that TB will always live, she is part of your spirit now and will walk by your side forever. Spend the last physical time she has with you to strenghten this bond and know...

Oh thank you so much each and everyone of you! My TB is very sick. I take him outside to go potty and he does nothing, but fall over. so his kidneys and bowels have shut down, I think. He wants no part of food. The vet's office told me he ate the whole time, but I also had Nikki in there with him in the kennel and I bet he ate all of Teddy Bear's food! They told me that TB was doing fine the whole week, but I just can't believe it! You can look in his eyes and see he is sick. this is a dog who used to follow me everywhere. He has stayed in one spot all day long. I also took him off the heart medication, just in case that was what was making him ill, but the vet said no. But I want to see first if it is the drugs that are making him feel worse. Hubby feels that TB only has a few days left and that we should just make him comfortable as long as we can, but he feels we will probably be putting him down this week. Oh how I dread this. The former three Shelties I had I had to put down and I bawled like a baby in the vet's office then too. I will cry very hard at the loss of this sweet dog. In the meantime, I am hoping it is just the drugs that have done this to him. Thank each and every one of you for your thoughts, comments and prayers. I really appreciate it cause my dogs are my children. I need advice what to do at this point in time as I want to do the right thing for the boy. But I know my emotional heart gets in the way and wants to keep TB around as long as I can. So any words of advice is welcomed! smile.gif

Yes, you did, Shadows! You prepared me. What grates me is that the vet keeps wanting to do more and more tests to put him on the supposedly right medication, but hubby is adamant that Teddy Bear is on his way to doggy heaven and will spend no more money on tests. He said to keep him comfortable and to prepare to put him down this week. He will not allow the dog to suffer any more than he has to...........stupid me wants to keep the dog around as long as I can. He has been my buddy for many years! I have a big problem within myself of putting a dog down to end his suffering and feeling like I have murdered him in doing so. I know I need to end his suffering this week too, but just want to make sure first that it isn't the medication that has been making him sick. I keep hoping, you see.

Thank you for all your advice, prayers and comments. I am really hurting right now over this dog. They are my children as I have never had children and so my dogs live the life of O'Riley when they are with me!

Rose the meds (if they were the same ones given my dog) indeed made things worse faster, but it was 4 days after we took her off those meds that my dog died. My prayers are to the creator for you to have the strength to deal well with this .

Rose, I do have one suggestion that worked for a beloved friend of MINE once who refused food and water while deathly ill with parvo: Try a can of the FANCIEST food you can find mixed with some water to try to tempt TB. It may not help, but it can't hurt, either.

Wow Shadows! the heart meds made things worse faster? Well that is what it seems like what has happened with TB as well. Now I am dealing with vomiting and diarrhea and have him on meds for that now. Wanted to talk to the vet, but he has been in surgery all morning..........sigh. TB seemed a little perky today, so I just keep hoping it was only the heart meds that is making him this way. Thanks for your advice and prayers, Shadows. I need it all right now. I have attachment issues and not wanting to let this dog go, but I know the inevitable is coming where I will have to. Hubby has already told me so.

Maisky, I have tried every kind of food to try to get this dog to eat and that is the only time he will get up and walk away. He wants no part of food or even water now. sad.gif

Dear Lady Rose...

Either be ready to deal with your treasure departing in your arms or let the vet relieve the pain both of you are going through right now; I wish I had let the vet do his job with my dog! I know it may sound callious to some of you , but I find letting our animals and old folks suffer due to our selfishness a thing of repugnace ; be selfless and let them go in peace. They will walk with you forever!

Shadows, I have an appointment at 5 pm this evening to put Teddy Bear down. This is going to kill me and my husband as we both love this dog so very much, but he is very ill and I have been cleaning up after him all day with the vomit and diarrhea. I just can't stand to see him suffer any longer. So I have to do the deed and I have been bawling all afternoon since I called the vet and told him what I needed to do. He will be in peace I know, but it will be so horrible letting him go.

Thank you for all your kind words, advice and prayers! It is much appreciated.

Crap! What a horrible year this has been! sad.gif sad.gif sad.gif
