jalk Posted August 4, 2014 Report Share Posted August 4, 2014 Hi folks. I'm new to this forum. I just need to vent and say how absolutely awful, depressed and anxious I feel. My beloved little dog I've had since 8 weeks of age is not doing well. They think he has a brain tumor. He is 16 now. They think this because the first part of this year he started having seizures. All blood work was normal. I did not let them confirm with an MRI because he is a pug and has a flat nose. They have a hard time with anesthesia. He paces a lot. Seizures controlled with meds but lately he is unable to stand up from lying down position. My vet said she would put him down or try him on pred or whatever I wanted. She felt he was not suffering but feels his quality of life is not good. She feels he does not recognize anyone. I opted for Predinsone. He seems a little more with it but paces constantly. I have to physically help him lay down so he will rest otherwise he paces for hours and hours. I have a sitter coming in a couple times a day to take him out to potty and fill his water dish. I am trying to contact a geriatric/hospice vet now. Waiting to hear back from her. It costs a lot but it doesn't matter to me because I love him so much. This has consumed me....I feel terrible. How does one ever survive this? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
