It’s been a sad weekend. Very late Friday night my oldest dog, Abby, developed bloat and was suffering. (Bloat is when a dogs stomach twists and they bloat up.) After many tears and consults with a friend and my Dad, I had to make the hard decision to euthanize her.
Abby is the same dog that had oral surgery several weeks ago. Although we don’t have results yet on what her tumor is, it’s likely cancer and was one more reason I could not put a 14 year old dog through the pain & trauma of an emergency surgery to try and fix the stomach. She was too sweet to be made to suffer.
