daisy was euthanized today. she wasn’t unexpected, she has been doing the downward slide for months. yesterday she wouldn’t eat anything except for tim bits. last night at midnight i found her wobbly and confused standing in the middle of the kitchen floor. i helped her back to bed and there she stayed, not wanting or able to get up today. we had decided with her last crises go around that daisy was palliative. her dementia had progressed to the point that diagnostics or even being left at the vets for treatments, like iV’s, would be unfair to her. she just no longer had the ability to deal with changes or anything stressful or unfamiliar.
she slept peacefully thru her passing with both renee and me.
daisy came from a horrible situation..rescued from one of the worst the SPCA had ever seen. she was content here, she was safe and loved and she passed from this life gently.
