So glad you had so much time with her over all the years, it's so tough to say goodbye but you did an honorable selfless act for your furry gal when she needed you the most.
My heart goes out to you,

|mcmanusf||We went to the vet this morning. She had lost 8kg in the 2 months. I didn't realise it would be so much. He couldn't do anything for her. The first thing he said about her was she was so cold which I had noticed before. It was time to let her go. She was sedated and then put yo sleep. We brought her home and we are going to bury her in the spot in the garden she loved and could see everything. Heartbroken she is gone but relieved she is not suffering.|

My sincere and heartfelt sympathy. We do often times prolong their problems for our own selfishness. God only knows I've had to do it more than enough times. But my advice, from one owner to another, would be to take a chance with one more vet. Sometimes we need more than a second, third or even fourth opinion! Maybe, just maybe... If it turns into a consensus of opinions, that's one thing. But if you happen to find a vet that even says, well, maybe. But, in my opinion, when your pet's quality of life goes to zero from the life you provided for them - which on a scale of 1 - 10 was probably a 12?

It's hard. It hurts like heck. You'll probably wonder if you made the right choice, many many times. But it does eventually get easier/better and you'll be able to remember the good times more than the bad. Many hugs going out to you while you go through this tough part.

The most difficult decision for any animal owner is when to let them go. It's never easy. Perhaps a visit with the vet might help you on this journey. They can help access her condition and provide some options for you, if any are available for her.
