    my best friend is going away...

    Ten year old pug that i found in a blizzard where i grew up in north newark in 2002. Has never left my side thru it all and can honestly say that she is the best dog i ever had. Right now she is in the early stages of a prolapsed uterus. Im trying to find a way financially but its proving to be very difficult. Your thoughts/prayers or insight is greatly appreciated.

    based on this article the treatment is spaying the dog...is it more complicated then that? what is the cost of fixing the issue?

    You have both my thoughts and prayers. We are also animal lovers and have lost numerous pets over the years to disease and/or old age. You best gal is 10 years old. Getting old for a pug. Realizing it is the end is the ultimate human kindness one can give a companion. She can't do it for herself and is relying on you to do the right thing. As much as you want to spend money to prolong the inevitable, don't do it. Not just because it's a financial hardship to you, but what does she really gain as to quality of life? It's time to let her go. It's the sad reality of pet ownership, we generally outlive them. I feel your pain. It's NEVER easy. Take solace in the time you've given her. Sorry for your ultimate loss.


    Edit. By all means, if it's in the very early stages such that spaying is a cure, do it immediately.

    Prolapsed uterus would be a great name for a band.

    Beside's that though....thoughts and prayers. The little buggers work their way into your heart don't they?

    sorry to hear.

    wife and i came very close to putting down our 17 year old Jack Russell this afternoon. she wants to give it one more night. i haven't had a lot of tragedy in my life besides being a Jets fan, so this is as bad as it gets for me.

    and I certainly understand finances and vets. just do all you can, your pet understands. good luck.

    His dog understands the budget? Or just money in general.

    Agree to disagree on that one.

    Ya I agree, I had a dog three years old and she hurt her paw, knowing the end would eventually come, we put her down.

    Neev's, if you can afford and the animal is not in pain then get what you and the dog can out of each other, a week, a month, a year, just make sure the dog is not in pain. once the dog is in pain you have to put her down.

    I know you want to do everything you can but sometimes you just cant. Not all the money in the world can fix some problems when it comes to health. It sucks but its all part of owning a dog. Sounds like you guys have a great relationship...he is a lucky dog to have such a caring owner.

    Absolutley...unconditional love. Always there for you. Dogs are the best. Heart-wrenching to have to deal with serious health problems though. I feel your pain. Just do the best you can. The outcome isn't always in your hands my friend.
