|lee_fr200||The vet told me we did more than most and took him to the point where nothing else could be done. He couldn't have had any more surgery there was no point in any more urine or blood test or any other tests (the amount of tests he had was unbelievable) on that day when he went in he hadn't eaten at all for 2days straight so I couldn't even force feed him. I did everything I could paid for whatever he needed and it still took him to the same result only 5-6 weeks down the line I know that if I ever get another I will definately have regular blood and urine tests and definately have insurance, and also give them as much love as possible as I've learnt you could literally have your best friend one day and on a slippery slope the next. So it's taught me a few valuable lessons|

Well the vet let me know and it was a brain tumour
It caused high amounts of calcium in his body which then destroyed his kidneys which then led to him losing weight and feeling generally unwell and nausea meaning he didn't want to eat. So it was a never ending circle the vet rang me today after his holiday and himself was rather upset as he loved Blake (as he was so gentle they never caged him while he was in and let him hang around the theatre area and staff room as he was never any bother, loved everything and everyone)
It's nearly a week later and we rly do miss him so much he shouldn't have gone through this at 3yr old especially when he was so perfect. What the vet couldn't tell us though is how quickly the tumour had started he said it could have been over the last 6-12 month or longer, I'm just happy now that he's not suffering and whatever pain he was in is over and as far as he was concerned he was just going to sleep and didn't know any better, but for us as owners we have to deal with the aftermath and the sorrow knowing that whatever his last thought was, was hopefully a nice one!
Sleep tight Blakey one day we will be reunited in your favourite field somewhere xxx

Oh Lee, I can't tell you how very sorry I am.
How horribly tragic! What a beautiful lovely boy he was. And you gave him the BEST of care and love especially in this last month. He knew you loved him.
At some point, I hope you can share with us as to what exactly it was.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Hi guys another little update
The vet has done yet more blood test and the steroids he's been on has lowered his calcium levels to near normal, BUT due to the amount of calcium in his blood his kidney levels are off the scale so he believes ATM we are dealing with a tumour that is causing the high calcium and the high calcium is causing kidney failure so I don't think my big man has got long left, plus he just tried to move and let out abit of a banshee style scream, I've got him comfortable but god knows why he did that.
He keeps developing a limp on his front legs which is baffling too.
We are at the vets in 2 weeks time for his next blood test but I think if his levels haven't changed or they've got worse I think the only thing to do for him is put him to sleep as I rly don't want him suffering in any way
His current medication is
8x prednicare tablets once a day (steroid)
2x slow K tabs once a day (potassium supplement)
And 8x spoons of ipakitine powder once a day
Vet has also given him pain killers called tramadol just incase he's in any pain

Are there any specialty vets in your area? I think a board certified interal medicine doctor should be your next stop. No offense to your vet at all, but even the best general practice vets arent use to seeing and handling cases of this type.
