i take on board what you are saying and i have made an appointment with the vets, although they cant see him till next wednesday and i was trying to help him in the meantime, the visit to the vets will cause him great stress and i will have a job to hold him even with a muzle on, as he trusts no one but me and will not allow any one to get near him let alone touch him, and i was trying to avoid unnessasary stress for him.
But something has to be done, i just hope that they can sedate him before examaning him, as an o.a.p. living on my old age pension and also getting housing bennefit i am eligable to the PDSA so thats what i have done, i just hope they will be thorough and will make a conrtibution for as much as i can.
Thanks for your help, as at the moment i feel so helpless nd woried, i know he is an old dog but i am sure he has a few good years to be spoiled in him yet, and as i love him so much i so much want to make good what cruelty mankind has given him before i had him.
problem is, as he is not eating he is not giving any stools, just vomitting occasional byle.
his gums are still pink, his eyes are still quite bright, and the skin inside his ears is still of a good colour.
I am sorry and sadden to have to tell you that Minty was put to sleep this morning, i took him on Wednesday evening to the emergency vets after talking to you, as i fet he was in too much pain to wait any longer, he was kept in overnight and stayed there untill this mornring, where after a ultra scan and x rays it was found that his kidneys had failed, and he was on a i v s drip since wednesday evening being given drugs for his kidneys as they found on that evening his kidneys were off the scale for their readings, but i am afraid that after 48 hours on them there was no difference at all, this in turn was affecting his pancreas badly and causing lots of pain, so when they phoned me this morning whith his results they told me the kindest thing to do was to put him to sleep, i went ther and held him in my arms as they did so, he passed away peacefully as i was kissing the top of his head.
i have just buried him in my front garden right close to my living room window, so he will always be near to me.Although i had only had him for 14 months he made a very loving best freind, and his memories will live in me forever.
