I said my goodbye's to my sweet dog Madison today.
After 6 weeks of steady decline, with the last week consisting of constant coaxing just to try to get her to eat anything, or drink at all, we had to give up today.
We tried everything, but all tests had been coming back normal, so the doctor and we were at a complete loss as to why she was wasting away and refusing everything, like she forgot how to eat or drink.
The strain on us all has been huge, and although I did not want to lose yet another dog so soon after the last two, none of us could continue as we have been going.
The final test for renal shut down came back normal, leading our vet to the only organ we could not test, the brain. She had a cancerous tumor in one eye, that we had to remove when she was about four, and he remembered that. We believe there was a cancer in the brain, shutting down functions and behaviors one by one, that was progressing rapidly.
She was a sweet and shy dog, who adjusted to things well over her 10 year life.
I'm going to miss her.......................
