  1. Messy Diagnosis & Treatment

    I'm so sorry. Run free beautiful girl.
  2. Messy Diagnosis & Treatment

    I'm so sorry @sandgrubber. It sounds like the kindest decision but I'm sure that doesn't make it any easier to face. You'll both be in my thoughts tonight.
  3. Messy Diagnosis & Treatment

    @sandgrubber I've been thinking of you and Patty. I hope you're both okay. x

    It's good that her appetite and stools have improved, and that you're getting some sleep. Managing a sick dog when you're exhausted seems to make it all so much more stressful and difficult. I don't really know how to respond to the digging of the hole.. I get it but it breaks my heart.
  5. Introducing Cassie (kelpie)

    I have no advice but both Cassie and Abby are gorgeous.

    I hope that the combination can keep her comfortable and happy for as long as possible. I agree, there are certainly worse things than death, as devastating as that is to face.
  7. It's sounds like they're both doing great! It's always nice to hear good things from the vet about how your dogs are. Maybe once the agility trials are done you could try adding the Big Dog back in the same way I did with Justice, just a quarter of a patty at a time, added to the pumpkin and Providore? I'm so pleased that they're both back to normal.

    I'm glad that your darling girl is still in good spirits. Having to have the fluid drained regularly doesn't sound like much fun. Justice had to have a small area on his shoulder drained every two days by the vet, after having a mast cell tumour removed and the position of the wound meaning the drain that was inserted during surgery didn't work effectively. It was pretty awful and that was only for a couple of weeks. Do you have any idea what palliative care might look like at this stage? Is there anything other than diuretics that can be done to address the fluid, beyond having it drained manually?
  9. @Tassie How are your guys doing now? Have you been able to transition them back to their normal food?
  10. Messy Diagnosis & Treatment

    @sandgrubber How did Patty go over the weekend? You've both been in my thoughts.
  11. Messy Diagnosis & Treatment

    Oh, that's wonderful! I'm so pleased that you did ask and have found people who can help. Please keep us updated with how Patty is going. Do you know yet when she's going for the ultrasound?
  12. Messy Diagnosis & Treatment

    Oh, the poor darling. I'm so sorry that she's relapsed. You must be so worried. Do you have someone who can drive you both for the ultrasound?
  13. Messy Diagnosis & Treatment

    I'm so glad Patty has responded as well as she has to the antibiotics. I completely understand your decision. I feel much the same way about Justice. I'm not willing to put him through extensive testing or treatment for anything that's either not curable or is going to significantly reduce the quality of however much life he's got left. We'll keep fingers and paws crossed that the antibiotics are the cure for your dear girl.
  14. I often think theres more thought and effort put in to his food than I put in to mine. Oh yeah, the no added sugar flavoured milks are insanely sweet! It's crazy how many foods have sugar and salt added unnecessarily.
