I'm putting the blog on hold for awhile to grieve the loss of my girl. I had her PTS today after several seizures and one very bad one at the veterinary hospital that left her brain damaged (though not confirmed medically I could see the difference). The specialist was 99.9% sure she had distemper as all her symptoms matched. Prognosis was very poor and even if she did make it she would've had neurological problems and eventually would've sucumbed to the seizures when meds stoppped working (I was told only one dog made it through distemper at that stage and 6 weeks later developed such severe seizures he had to be PTS). I cannot type too much now as it's still extremely hard not having her here as it is, much less reliving the entire situation.
