RIP Logan, 11/07/2009

My dear sweet boy Logan passed away yesterday. He was only 3.5 years old. Back in February I woke up one morning to find Logan having a seizure in the living room, and rushed him to Purdue Veterinary Hospital. He remained in the ICU for a week before coming home with a diagnosis of idiopathic SIADH. I was informed that the medication was not FDA approved yet and if Logans sodium levels in his blood didn't match the levels in his brain water would rush in or out to equalize, causing brain damage or worse. But he seemed to be doing so great, and acted his normal happy self with water restriction.

I would not trade the last 9 months with Logan for a million dollars. I work at a stable, teaching riding lessons and training horses. I put the dogs up for my lessons yesterday morning, when I went to go let the dogs out I found Logan on his side with his legs and head twitching slightly like the seizure back in February. I pulled him into my lap, and was frozen in panic not sure what to do. I don't have a vet down here, I drive up to my old vet still and do not know of emergency vet hospitals down here. But then he was gone, so fast. I'm not sure how long I held him, but then I got up and walked towards one of the boarders who looked at my face and exclaimed "whats wrong?!"

Since it had to happen, I'm glad it happened at the barn where I was immediately surrounded by friends. Once I could no longer stay with him, they took care of everything to bury him at the edge of the woods and then showed me his place so I can visit. Tessa was and is very depressed as well. She layed against the body as I stroked him. Afterwards, she wouldn't leave my side. I had to work a birthday party that afternoon, and when I kept trying to put her up in various places so she wouldnt be in the way she escaped from every one within minutes so I just worked the party with her as my shadow.

Rest in peace my dear sweet boy, it was meant to be and I only wish it wasn't so short.

I'm am SO sorry! What a gorgeous boy, and so young. I remember reading about his previous health problem, but thought (and hoped) that he was okay. How sad.
