We lost two dogs less than a year ago, both to cancer. I still get tears in my eyes thinking of all they went through, and how much I miss them. It's so hard to watch a beloved pet go downhill, and have a difficult time. It really tore us up when we had to put them down. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
I live in an upstairs apartment. In June of this year, my 100lb lab, Kettle, came in from going potty and stood at the bottom of the steps and looked up. She couldn't climb the stairs. So, Lola, her babysitter, let her stay at her house and I visited every day. The vet did xrays and discovered 4 spurs on her spine. She had problems with lameness off and on and in August the lameness came back. This time the vet discovered she had cancer fluid built up on her leg joint and he drained some off, allowing her to walk again. The evening of Aug 23, she was in so much pain she was awake all night and I laid by her side on the floor at Lola's. Kodak even tried curling up next to her. On Aug 24th the groomer gave a free bath, she made a visit to the office, went to McDonalds and the vet's office was her final visit. Even the vet agreed he thought Kodak would go first. I miss her so much!
