I just loss my #1 pet & heart on Monday 3-29-10 at 6:00am, due to liver failure & cardiac arrest, she died in my arms on the way to the emergency pet hospital.
I am so much pain, grief, I can not stop crying,
Maci was 5 1/2 yrs. old, all black, Yorki-Poo, she was the most beautiful, loving, caring pet I have ever owned. She was healthy, I took her to the vet yearly, to the goomer every 2 months, and everyone loved her. She went with me everywhere I went and the only pet of my 4 that slept in bed with me, cuddled up to my chest every night. I just can't imagine life without her, I try to stay busy, but the pain remains.
I just don't understand why she was so healthy, active, happy, loving, for almost 6yrs. and the vet did not detect she had a issue with her liver.
She got sick on Thurs. 3-25-10 night, I called the vet, followed their advice and she did stop throwing up, but just layed and slept on my lap, would not eat at all, even rice & chicken the vet advised. Late Sunday evening she started jerking, I called the emergency hospital, they said put corn syrup on her gums, she had low blood sugar from not eating. That did stop the jerking, about 1hr later she went into convulsions, I rushed her to the pet hospital, and she passed away in my arms.
The emergency vet said she was alive when I brought her in, I was so hysterically crying, I know she wasn't her little red tongue was hanging out and she was so limp when I carried her in there, The vet had to call my brother to come to the hospital, they had to put me in a private room, I could not even talk,
My brother said she had a bad liver and it failed and she went into cardiac arrest. I just wanted to lay down and die with her. Walking out of the hospital without my Maci, and my brother beside me, was so painful, I could not even drive, my brother drove me home, and I talked on the phone the best I could to my daughter, I know, I would of not survived his nightmare with them and their love & support the day she died.
I hope someone out there can help me deal with this grieve & sorrow and advice on how to deal with the pain, my other 2 dogs are also grieving, and look everywhere for Maci, it is so heart breaking to watch them.
