Our dear Westie Zoe was put down yesterday it was my choice since we have tried everything for the last 6 months to get her better but after a lot of expense nothing seemed to work and she was suffering. Now I am wondering if I was too hasty I miss her bitterly she was my ‘grand dog’ and I spoiled her a lot. Should I have tried longer? It cost a lot of money and the vet specialist said this would not be curable. This was the third antibiotic we had tried. I miss her a lot. Though I feel it was the right decision, maybe we could have gone on a little longer with daily shampoos, medication, injections every week or two - but for how long. She was so sweet and now she’s gone. It’s hard.

I’m so sorry for your loss. From everything you’ve described, it sounds like Zoe has been having a very difficult time. My thought is that it has to be about her quality of life but it is a huge decision so we will tend to second guess ourselves. If it helps, I do think you made the right decision for your beloved Zoe even though it hurts so much and you would love for her to be with you. Sending hugs,
MJ

Thank you for your note. It seems to come in waves, guilt, relief, sadness.Hard to live in the same house and not see her tiny face and black eyes following me everywhere. Relief that she is not suffering,I keep reminding myself of thamt and I feel better for a bit. But everytime I climb the stairs and every time some event happens, I miss her prescence.

I am very sorry to hear of the loss of your precious Westie Zoe.  When a pet is suffering we show our love by trading their suffering for ours.  Westie Zoe is at peace now with no pain or discomfort but you are just beginning the grieving process.  It is very common for people in this forum who have had to make the extremely difficult decision to let a fur baby go to ask if it was too soon.  It is the finality of the decision whenever it is made that is so very difficult because we usually could have waited one more day and then  one more day and then one more day after that.  But we want those days for ourselves because we don't want to be experiencing so much grief. 

You put the needs of  your dear Westie Zoe ahead of your own which was an act of love.   I hope you may be able to find some comfort from people here at the Rainbow Bridge in helping you through this terrible grief which we all share.
