      Oh hun my heart us breaking for you. I know exactly how you feel and how much this hurts. I also hope she passes on her own but if you do have to make that decision remember you are doing this FOR her not to her. I hate this disease and I am so so sorry you have to go through this. THinking of you and Gracie. I beleive they are all waiting for us and we will meet again.

        Well the fact that she is still happy and in good spirits is really all that matters at this point. I have not heard of the fluid retention before so yes, that is one more thing to learn about this process for others. Dont worry about being gross here (or at least with me). I am glad she is doing well despite the challenges.  Spoil her rotten. You're doing all you can and you're a great pup parent!

          Mellen. I'm sorry. This isn't something that I experienced. Is she pooping regularly? She could be constipated from the meds. I certainly would ask the vet what it could be.

            I am so sorry to hear about Gracie. This disease sucks. Any cancer does but it is so hard when your fur baby is sick. My Tessa lived 2 years and 2 months after diagnosis and honestly for 2 years and 2 months I wondered "how will I know when it's time?" I worried all the time because I never wanted her to be in pain or suffer. Of all of these stories my girl did pass away at home on her own. I have had to make that ca...

              JoCro I am SO sorry to hear about Noodles diagnosis. I know exactly how you feel right now. Tessa's tumor was near the neck of her bladder and also inoperable. My heart broke when I heard that. My vet said they "can" place a stint in the bladder if the tumor begins to get too large because what you don't want is to have the tumor block the neck of her bladder and she will be unable to urinate and her bladder could ru...

                They don't know they are sick and they act VERY normal which is agreat sign that they are still living a good life. In most of these threads the decline was gradual. Changes in eating habits or behaviors. Nothing appears to be sudden. Spoil him ALL you can. Give him whatever he wants. We never have them for long to begin with but when we know the time is going to be sooner than later I say let the indulging begin! Pl...

                  I love how close Shadow and your son are. What a sweet and special bond. I really think in most cases there is a decline and you have time to realize what is happening. My greatest fear was that the tumor would cause a blockage and her urine would back up and cause a rupture. I was terrfied of that happening. She did begin to strain and the clots started about a year prior to her passing. However they started 2 month...

                    Im so sorry to hear about Shadow. I lost my sweet Tessa to this awful thing. I was just like you and worried all the time about "when" and "how will I know?" and everyone told me that I would just know. She became very ill on a Sunday (of course) she had eaten her breakfast very agressively that day and then later on began acting strange. Her motor skills changed, she seemed very disoriented, almost drunk in ways. It...

                      It really is a great support page. Our stories are all very similar and it helps to hear what other people did and tried. We ALL have the same goal and wanted the best for our babies. Just know you are not alone and we all understand how you feel. You will now get notifications when new members post on here asking questions and needing advice. Its hard to hear their heartache and remembering that same fear I had when...
