I am sorry you have lost your friend. You made a difficult decision, but you did it to spare her more pain. I understand how guilty you feel, also anger you are feeling toward the vet. Guilt and anger are two major components of loss. It is very human and normal to have these feelings. I speak to you from my personal experience with diabetes and kidney failure. The release of urine at death is normal. It does not mean her bladder was empty. It does not mean your decision to euthanize her was wrong or that the vet gave you bad info. Diabetes is a killer, both for humans and for animals. I understand you doubt your judgment. That is normal in a loss so new. But you displayed great love, courage and compassion. You chose to lose her company rather than allow her to continue to fail. To place her need before yours is a sign of selfless & great love. You are in my thoughts, Regina
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal;
Love leaves a memory no one can steal.
