I'm so sorry for your loss. It is devastating to lose them. I too recently (two weeks ago) had to make the same decision on our 9 yr old senior rescue GS. We had her little over a month. Same symptoms as Cutter. She just stopped eating one day. After the second missed meal, I took her to the vets. After tests (blood work, Ultrasound and X-ray) it was determined she had Hemangiosarcoma. There was blood in her stomach they extracted. She had a large mass on her spleen causing her to bleed internally. The mass had spread small tumors to her liver and heart....the vets said there was nothing to do but not let her suffer. He said its aggressive and spreads fast. It was one of the hardest things to go through. I was expecting to go home with meds for her, not say good bye. Praying for you.

I'm so sorry. Hemangio is nasty. I bought about 6 months because we caught BTYs early but it is a hopeless disease. She bled out again & the cancer had spread. It's fast and it's fatal.

I am so very sorry. I always admired photos of your handsome guy so much. I always tell people.."It's the last and best gift you can give to them." But I know it doesn't make it any easier. Prayers to you.

Cutter always so healthy and strong his whole life was ravaged by Cancer and internal bleeding.

Just yesterday he was running around at dogpark, took him this morning, he looked a little off but when we got there all he did was lay down, he never lays down at dogpark. I took him to my local vet and after a series of tests he told me Cutter was bleeding internally showed me the syringe of blood taken from his abdomen and told me he has Cancer also and he needed a specialist.

Took him to the best specialist in the state Animal Specialty Group and they confirmed he was internally bleeding and was riddled with Cancer which I never picked up on, here on day gone the next, it was that fast.
They said they could try a $10K surgery, the money not a problem but they said it would be a 66% chance of recovery and of that 66% chance of relapse.

When they brought him in to see me he was panting like crazy, he was literally blowing up from the inside out. As much as I wanted to save him I could see the pain he was in and wouldn't make it through the night, it was at that point I decided to do the humane thing to my almost 9 year old companion, goodbye Cutter over the Rainbow bridge you go dear friend, I'll really miss you.
Cherish what you have everyday you'll never know when they'll be gone.

Oh no! I am so very very sorry. I can't imagine what you must be feeling. You did the best anyone could by him and you made the right decision. Rest in peace Cutter.
