We lost Nalda yesterday. She has been acting “old” for a few days and Sunday didn’t even want to go for a walk. She wouldn’t eat yesterday morning, so I took her to the vet yesterday. She had a huge tumor on her spleen that was obliterating all of her other organs on the x-ray. She was bleeding internally. They said that we had 2 choices; put her to sleep right then as she was suffering or do emergency surgery to remove her spleen and tumor. They only gave her 30% chance of surviving surgery as they said she was most likely 12, not 8, and she was anemic. Even with a transfusion, they said her chances were not good at all. I did not want to put her through all that only to lose her on the table, so I called Buzzy and he came to be with me when we put her to sleep.
Please remember my girl on the rainbow bridge. I only had 4 month with her, but at least they were happy months and she didn’t die in that shelter.
