30 May For the Love of Dog
Update from Jennifer:
So here’s the scoop: After a sweet birthday party for Frank on Monday (the day before his actual birthday) and Bee being her usual sweet party-dog self, she got sick in the night. Frank took her to her Vet as soon as they opened in the morning. She was losing blood internally and her condition declined. It got to the point that the vet recommended taking her to the Wheat Ridge Animal Hospital to potentially get a blood transfusion. At WRAH they were able to do ultra sounds, and a bunch of tests in house to see what they could find. What they found was that it was 99.9% Not HGI – which would have been the one ‘curable’ thing. She was dealing with and ulcerated intestine which was bleeding heavily into her intestines. The most likely causes of that, after ruling out several other things, were that it was some sort of cancer, or possibly poisoning. There is no evidence of poisoning and I don’t in my heart believe that was the cause. NOTE: Keep all your antiInflammatory medicines – Advil, Aleve, etc out of any possible reach of your pets!
Most likely, they said, even if we did all the stuff- it would have just ended up being a ‘making her comfortable’ thing. Yuck – not for our Bee. Se was such a brave sweet soul. No yelping, complaining. She just wanted to be a good sweet dog – always. What a gift for my beloved Frank , giving him unconditional love that is beyond human capability in the worse and best of times. Please hold my Frank in your hearts – he needs our love most now. I love you Bee, I love you in my falible human way Frank… I hold you both so gently in my heart…
