I just lost my beloved dog..Chloe. She was 121/2 and the joy of my life. She came into my home and my heart at a time when I needed her so badly. She has been at my side through happiness and saddness and lonliness. She has an older sister who thankfully is still with me. But, Chloe was the joy and the light. She began having seizures 2 mths ago....we had blood work done. They were concerned about her liver. The vet said she had a slight heart murmur which was not abnormal for a dog her age. Should I have investigatd it further? They put her on pheno barbital. It really slowed her down. I called the vet constantly and he continued telling me it was a normal reaction. On Monday evening, her breathing became more labored. I again called the vet, and got the same response. Late that night, she became sicker.....I was alone and we were having almost tornado like storms. There was no local vet. The closest was 11/2 hours away. I was still told the reaction was normal for the drug she was on. At 6:00 AM, I knew I was going to lose my baby. She crawled to the top of the sofa to say good-bye to Fendi, and then crawled to the other end and put her beautiful face in my lap and then she left me. My grief is inconsolable. Chloe always knew I needed for her to be more than a dog, and she always was. I feel guilty that I didn.t do more that night....She always knew that I loved her and always will....I just need someone who understands that it isn't over in a day.
