Had to put my dog to sleep tonight....

My second dog in less than a year, this sucks Especially this dog, she was so unique, she went everywhere with me. She was my best friend. Last Monday she was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis (her immune system was killing off a certain type of receptor in her nervous system). It made her esophagus 3 times its normal size and made her paralyzed if I didn't give her some medicine 3 times a day. The meds really helped her mobility, but didn't do anything for her throat. I had to teach her to eat sitting down so gravity would pull her food to her stomach. It worked for almost a week until this morning when she aspirated (threw up and inhaled at the same time, making food go in her lungs). This introduced some nasty bacteria into her body and she fell apart really fast (she didn't even have enough energy to not piss on herself). I took her to the emergency clinic this afternoon and the vet agreed that the best thing to do was put her to sleep.

RIP Sunny, I will miss you......

Re: Had to put my dog to sleep tonight....

I'm very sorry for you. I'm sorry but my dog Beau had the same thing. before that I had never heard of it before and the vet said it's very rare. the worst part is that you feel sooooo helpless because their's nothing you or the vet can do. you give the dog a shot and they jump up and walk around like nothing is wrong for a few min. and then they go back down. again very sorry for your loss, as a dog lover I think it's the worst thing you can go through.

RIP Beau "he was only 11 months old"

Re: Had to put my dog to sleep tonight....

Thanks guys. Yeah, Sunny was only 10 months. The syrup got her walking just fine, but eatting was a whole nother story She got to be so miserable today though, that its really comforting to know that she isn't struggling anymore.

Re: Had to put my dog to sleep tonight....

its such a rough thing to do... we had our dog put to sleep last year.

we got a new pup to fill the void, but its still sad because dogs have different personalities and it doesn't replace her.

Re: Had to put my dog to sleep tonight....

I'm sorry.

Having a dog is one of the most wonderful things in the world, it's soooo hard when you lose them. We had to put down our yellow lab, Chester, 2 years ago this month, and our dalmation, Miss Kitty, about 2 weeks ago now. Chester had bone cancer and was in a lot of pain and Kitty was very sick, but was trying to hang in there. It just got to be too much for her and wasn't worth either of them being in pain and suffering. I know it's hard!!!

Re: Had to put my dog to sleep tonight....

oh no... God bless you... I'm so sorry to hear this..
I share your pain though.. right after Dad passed away this October, our harrier, Sooner, began to fail also.. she was old though, and it was the best thing to do, to put her down.
She was doing what it sounds like yours was doing..
I send my prayers to you. *hug*

Re: Had to put my dog to sleep tonight....

very sorry to hear about your loss, especially that close to christmas. i had a dog choke to death in my arms (vet couldnt tell that was the problem until it was too late) and my next dog got hit and killed by a speeding driver at only 10 months old (less than 8 months after my first one died). I got a new puppy and it was sick when i got it and didnt know it so when she started showing symptoms i took her to the vet and then back to the breeder for a refund the next day. I called the breeder the morning after that and she said the dog had passed during the night. It's been a rough year and a half for me pet wise, but it will get better.

Best of luck to ya, and may you and your family be comforted.
