I'm so sad too find you have lost your dog. Trust me when I say I totally understand this is a very hard blow but as others have already said, she didn't suffer and went peacefully.We lost our 5 year old Australian Shepard today. Back in September we thought she had a bladder infection and the vet put her on meds for it. Then Wednesday she chewed up a luffa I had left to dry on the porch and took her to the vet the next morning because she was acting off and we were worried that all of the bleach haven’t been rinsed off or it was causing a blockage. The vet didn’t seem worried and sent her home with some meds to help her pass it and she seemed better until this morning. This morning we took her back to the vet and between her
x-rays and blood work the vet decided that she needed exploratory surgery to hopefully find either a blockage or a bleed in her intestines. Unfortunately what they discovered was end stage cancer. Because of this we chose to just let her not wake up from the surgery. she passed around 3 o’clock this afternoon. It was very rough we never expected something like this and thought she’d have at least another 7 years.
