lovemygirl Super quickly while I have a second -- tried the Q-tip trick at 4 AM and today on our long easy walk -- did not work at 4 AM (she just walked around with her back arched for the rest of the walk) and took 45 mins to produce a BM on our big easy walk. She didn't eat a single bite before the big long walk (despite being offered beef, chicken, & cheese - her 3 favorite foods and she hardly ever gets beef or cheese), figured maybe it was b/c she had to poo, but I finally got her to poop at 11 and she's still not eating...she licked a couple of pieces of beef....

I know there are a bunch of replies here and I have read and appreciate them all! But I've got to call the vet and maybe run an errand while she naps and then I'm sure I'll be heading out with her again

SusiQ I'm so very sorry that you're going through this. You are doing the most selfless thing you can do for your baby - letting her go peacefully until you meet again at the Bridge.

readaboutdogs Yes the pics of them showing the personality their loved ones only get to see are the best! I agree with SuperG, all the special things you do with her and for her will make a difference for you!

Where is the cancer?

Chemopreventive effect of the non-psychotro... [J Mol Med (Berl). 2012] - PubMed - NCBI

Abstract

Colon cancer affects millions of individuals in Western countries. Cannabidiol, a safe and non-psychotropic ingredient of Cannabis sativa, exerts pharmacological actions (antioxidant and intestinal antinflammatory) and mechanisms (inhibition of endocannabinoid enzymatic degradation) potentially beneficial for colon carcinogenesis. Thus, we investigated its possible chemopreventive effect in the model of colon cancer induced by azoxymethane (AOM) in mice. AOM treatment was associated with aberrant crypt foci (ACF, preneoplastic lesions), polyps, and tumour formation, up-regulation of phospho-Akt, iNOS and COX-2 and down-regulation of caspase-3. Cannabidiol-reduced ACF, polyps and tumours and counteracted AOM-induced phospho-Akt and caspase-3 changes. In colorectal carcinoma cell lines, cannabidiol protected DNA from oxidative damage, increased endocannabinoid levels and reduced cell proliferation in a CB(1)-, TRPV1- and PPARγ-antagonists sensitive manner. It is concluded that cannabidiol exerts chemopreventive effect in vivo and reduces cell proliferation through multiple mechanisms.

katdog5911 It is very obvious that you love your dog....and I am sure your pup knows it too. Your situation is so very hard to be in. I had to make the decision for one of my dogs several years ago. Never had to before, like your experience, mine all passed on their own until then. It was so very very difficult but it is also hard to watch them suffer.

Love your picture....

SuperG If not framed in a conventional method...it will be framed in your mind forever...

Such a nice person to cater to your loyal Evoo...it makes more of a difference than you might imagine..It might be hard to imagine....but your actions, the love and care that has been there all along...even in the hardest of times, will make for two winners at the end of the day.

Hang in there and cherish every minute,


SuperG

lovemygirl I have been off work since Friday and converted one of our sofas into Dog Paradise There is a ramp so she can get up and down when her hips are sore, nice soft blanket, supposedly the couch material is now water- and stain-proofed... she has been enjoying this new corner of her kingdom -- check out this picture I caught of her mid-stretch. I love pics like these that capture her goofy personality... this one will be framed for sure

Thank you, it's comforting to know others are thinking of her as well. The only people I've been able to tell are my boss (to get the time off - bless her heart) and my dad. Just can't muster the emotional fortitude to discuss it with anyone else, feel like I'm in shock almost

It sucks, there's no way around it.....so do it with your head held high...between the tears.

My thoughts are with you.


SuperG
Thanks so much SuperG... can't believe how soon Wednesday will be here. I just want to lay awake with her for the next 48 hours, don't want to lose another second

Link for anyone else who may want to read: http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...found-way.html THANK YOU. I will definitely try this, probably the q-tip since the ice would be too difficult to do outdoors - I don't mind if she goes inside, but she (she's a rescue and was adopted at 4 or 5 years of age) would sooner die. She's had exactly two accidents in the 14 mos she's been with us, and for the first 4 days she had undiagnosed EPI and had tapeworms at one point. So I'd just rather not stress her by making her go inside - we've never reacted badly (just ignored it the 2x it happened) but she cowered and ran and hid both times.

This sucks so much more than I could have ever imagined.... never had to make the decision before. Every other animal I've ever owned has passed away in its sleep of old age

Springbrz So sorry to hear your sad news. Evoo knows you love her and that you are there for her. As heartbreaking it is, you are giving her a the greatest gift, selfless love. You are giving her freedom from her pain. Take solace in knowing Evoo will always be with you! Prayers of strength to you both.
