I had to say goodbye to Sugar a couple days ago. She was first diagnosed with kidney failure 9 months ago. I did everything I could to treat her condition... Prescription food, daily subcutaneous fluids, supplements, medications, surgery to input a fluid tube so I didnt have to needle her every day, and monthly blood tests. At first, she did great... all I was doing was able to manage her kidney functions. I didnt care about the cost... I cared about her. So I did what I was told. I visited several vets and was told that I was just prolonging her life, but that her condition was ultimately terminal. 2 weeks ago, she got sick again and stopped eating. She was in the hospital for 3 days. But they were able to stabilize her. But when I picked her up, I was warned that she was at the end stage. Her kidneys could no longer function and all the money in the world couldn’t save her. It was just a matter of time. I continued to follow protocol with hee treatment, but on Monday, April 13th, she stopped eating, stopped drinking, and didnt want to leave bed. I made the decision that it was time and I feel guilty about it. I just didnt want her to suffer and get so sick to the point that she was in pain. I had my home vet come over that night to help her along. I had her for almost 7 years.... and I have never dealt with this type of loss before. As a kid, I didnt have any pets, so this is hitting me especially hard. I dont know what to do. Im trying to stay positive, but I cant. Its been 2 days and I miss her terribly. Thank you to anyone who is reading this.
