Re: So worried about my Xena

David has been bawling his eyes out and now cos he's such a macho eurotrash boy i let him go out to the pub to recover.

I went to get Kheops from my in laws and when we came home he looked around for Xena everywhere, then he realised and came sat by his mama :(

Re: So worried about my Xena

Thank you all. She went peacefully today at 4pm, surrounded by the three humans she loved the most in her life. She was so strong she took 15 minutes to go to sleep, we were all holding her and told her she was such a good dog and so loved and that she could go in peace. She was my heart dog. Everyt...

Re: So worried about my Xena

Thank you thank you, you guys are so overwhelming with your support. Xena's grandma brought her over some leftover roast turkey and she ate a tiny bit out of my hand then lay with her head on my tummy for an hour, she is so silky soft and sweet. Now she's tucked up fast asleep and peaceful with her ...

Re: So worried about my Xena

Thanks guys, we have made a rule not to cry or act upset around our Xena-nan-soo. We don't want her to be more distressed than she already is so we're telling stupid jokes to each other to keep upbeat. I wish we could do the things in that article but I think we will be limited to having her lie in ...

Re: So worried about my Xena

Thank you, I know. She has taken a turn for the worse and it looks like Thursday will be the day. D is taking the next two days off to spend with her and I will take Thursday off so we are both there together. We are so heartbroken. I try to tell myself that if we hadn't taken her in she would proba...

Re: So worried about my Xena

Knowing when to let them go is one of the hardest things to decide but then all of a sudden, at least in my experience, it become crystal clear that it is time. I'm trying to say that most likely, you will know with a good to great amount of certainty when it is time. :hug: I think that is what I n...

Re: So worried about my Xena

It's really hard for to assess whether she is stable or getting worse. She is not getting better. But she fights so hard. She throws up a lot and drinks masses of water. We struggle to find food that she will actually eat to start off with. I've spent masses on all kinds of meat to try and now we're...

Re: So worried about my Xena

I forgot to mention that the vet thinks that she might also have Cushing's Syndrome. But he doesn't think that it is worth treating it because the medication will cut her appetite all together and she doesn't need anymore weight loss. My poor girly!

Re: So worried about my Xena

Oh and my other dog Kheops is being a sooky la la. I sent him to D's ex for the day, we are friends and he lived with her until he was 4, so that Xena could rest. Well he refused to even drink water all day let alone eat!

Re: So worried about my Xena

She has an infection in her tooth and that's what causing the problem with her eye. She had a shot of antibiotic, cream for the eye and I have to continue that for 6 days. That is a whole lot of meds with the kidney and liver stuff... He also gave me a special kind of paste that is used for dogs and...

Re: So worried about my Xena

Do you think she'd let you hold a warm cloth on her bump? Maybe that would just help it clear up. It would probably make you feel better that you are doing something? Xena is a lucky soul to have such a devoted person like you Kate to take care of her. Thank you, that is sweet. :) I gave it a go bu...

Re: So worried about my Xena

We are having a crap day today, D rang me up at lunch when he popped in to feed her, to say she had a lump on her snout. I rang the vet and we don't have an appt til tomorrow night. Now I'm home and I think it might be an infected tear duct because it is right by her eye and her eye is a tiny bit ma...

Re: So worried about my Xena

Thanks you guys, I appreciate the support. She is doing OK, eating, no more weight on but none off. I really feel her old age setting in, lots of little accidents and she is kind of confused sometimes. Like just now I was getting her food in the kitchen and was calling her, and she went to look for ...

Re: So worried about my Xena

She had more beef last night but she threw that up :(
I spoke to the vet today and he has a special preparation that David is going to pick up that has an appetite stimulant in it.
