        So very sorry to hear this. I don't come to the forum often since we lost Sadie in August 2012, as it simply too painful. Because I know exactly what each of you are going thru whether it someone that just found out their beloved pet has TCC, or someone in the middle of treatment or those at the end. I remember vividly each stage.  I have regrets too, that hurt, I wish I had let Sadie go a few days earlier, I j...

          I am so very sorry to hear this. I have not been on the forum in months, as it was so very hard after losing our 7 year old black lab, Sadie to TCC. Hugs to you.  I will share this, for months after losing Sadie, I cried almost daily. In fact I was beginning to think I was not going to get past this. But 10 months later a lovely little yellow lab mix popped up on my computer screen, at a local shelter and her ...

            I can't imagine a Vet saying that. My Vet was the best friend I had when we had to let Sadie go. He told me all Sadie knew was she was loved and no longer in pain.  That she was so tranquilized that she was not even aware of her surroudings. I keep reminding myself that letting them put her down was no more painful to her than when she had surgery, as she did not know she was dying. The hard part is on all of ...

                So very sorry to hear this. When you described what was happening, I knew exactly how you were feeling as we went through this in August.  Sadly we only had Sadie for 7 years and it is never enough time, regardless. Hugs to you.

                  Previous experience with seizures? Sadly yes, on the day Sadie died she had a seizure and never responded to any of us after it. She was still breathing but the Vet said her heart beat was very weak. She also threw up that morning.  We let her go.

                    A few days before we had to let Sadie go, she really did not want to eat. I almost had to force feed her. On the day of she went into the back yard and crawled under our shed, which she had not done since she was a little puppy. She had a seizure during the day and when I took her to the vet she seemed to not even know me. It was time. You will know.

                      It takes as long as it takes. For me we lost Sadie in August and I am still not over it. I am better and I have really good days and some not so good days.  She was family, she was my dearest and closest friend. We went everywhere together.  Like you, I had dogs all my life, but never did one capture my heart like Sadie did.  At this point I am not sure I will get another dog. I have lost one child ...
