My wife, daughter and I lost a wonderful friend today. He was our pug, Wasabi.
He got sick Wednesday night and had been on an IV, antibiotics, transfusions, and corticosteroids until today trying to help him recover.
The vets were unable to determine what made him sick, but his GI system was hemmoraging and his liver enzymes were so high they could not even be measured even when diluting the blood sample.
We don't keep any household chemicals in the house nor medication, nor anything else toxic that we can possibly think of. At this point I don't care what it was b/c it won't bring him back.
I talked to the vet this morning and he said when dogs get this sick, they are either able to recover or just being kept alive, and Wasabi was just being kept alive.
We went and said goodbye to him this afternoon and stayed with him as they gave the anesthesia.
He was like a son to my wife and I and like a brother to my daughter. He was the sweetest dog I ever met. He loved to cuddle, and he never growled, barked at, or bit anyone.
It was hard, but I know it was for the best.
Bye boy. Remember that daddy loves you.
