Gracie4ever Posted September 13, 2020 Report Share Posted September 13, 2020 I recalled today that my girl would eat a few bites then lay down nearby and I thought she didn’t like the food so I kept changing it up. Towards the end she’d also go to her water bowl and put her head over it, then leave. But I have a picture of her drinking water on Monday and she passed on Wednesday...so it was sporadic. That’s why I didn’t know until now that these things happened because her legs were weak. I feel so bad thinking that she was hungry or thirsty and couldn’t stand long enough and just went back to bed. I think it happened only in her last few days but any, is too much! I figured it out and started serving her food and water while she lay down...so her last two days she did eat and drink..,but I feel so bad or those times I didn’t realize!! Why did she do it sporadically so I thought she was ok? Why did she hide her pain? I don’t know how to deal with these memories in any health way. I know that it ends up that most animals do suffer before they pass because they hide it too well. Still, I feel guilty. I know she isn’t suffering now but I think the guilt will overtake me. I’m meeting with a trauma counselor on Tuesday. I really hope she can help me figure out a way to endure all of these overwhelming feelings. Thank you to all in this forum that try to help each other through our grief. You are each appreciated! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
