Dearest Jess - What a terrible thing to have happened!! I am so very sorry about the loss of your beautiful Mishka. She looks very much like my beloved Natasha who passed away years ago at the age of 5. I am really at a loss of what to say as your story is so very sad--I cannot believe that a vet would make that kind of mistake when doing a relatively routine procedure like spaying a female. Have you talked to the vet to get some answers as to why things happened the way they did? Maybe the infection she had prior to the spaying was more than an infection. At this point however, I would imagine that her loss far outshadows any other issues and I am again so very very sorry. You have come to the right place to talk about your precious Mishka and to express all the feelings you are having. Everyone on this forum is going through something similar to what you are now going through and the first thing to remember is that you are not alone. Keep coming here and let us know how you are doing. Grief is a terrible foe because it seems to isolate us, making us feel alone and lost. But here, we have at least conquered that part of Grief in that you have a place to go to not be alone and will have many here helping you find your way out of the lost. I wish you warm hugs and blessings of comfort.
Hi Denise, thanks for replying. I’m really sorry for your loss. As for the vet, we haven’t really spoken to him since it all went down, he kind of disappeared after things got complicated and never asked about her since then, I’ll try to look into it, though. This forum has helped me a lot since I discovered it, cause, like you said, everyone here is going through something similar. I feel a little bit better every day knowing that Mishka is in a better place without suffering and knowing that I have this support group whenever I feel down. I appreciate that you took some time to reply to this post, it’s helped a lot. Best wishes to you.
