My Daisy started coughing 4 days ago and after taking her to the vets who did a chest x-ray has told me that she has lung cancer and actually wanted to put her to sleep straight away. However she was running round the garden last week and I don't feel that she should go just yet. Does anyone know of anything that will extend her life without making her suffer? She has got pain killers and the vet said she has about 2 months maybe. I've had her 12 years and after loosing my Great Dane last month can't stand the thought of loosing another.
I am so sorry. Words can express the loss of a beloved companion. You loved them enough to know when it is time to help them through. And we know you did. Maybe your sadness be short and your memories last a lifetime.
I concur with everything said here. I know only to well of the heartache you are going through. My Molly lost her fight against cancer 18 months ago and as has been said, she will tell you when enough is enough. Until then you know what to do. Just love her as you always have and treat every day as a special one. My thoughts are with you and Daisy. xxx
Thank you everybody for your kinds words, still expect to see her face every morning but know she isn't suffering anymore. The end came a lot quicker than I had wished for but looking at the old photos of her is comforting. Deborah
