RIP Ruby

It is with a very heavy heart I am writing this post.

Ruby had a tough weekend and yesterday she got paralyzed in her back legs.

She was in so much pain and since Tuesday till yesterday she lost another 5 kg.

I could not stand to see her suffer anymore and even though I can’t afford after hour vet services. The way she looked at me to please help her. My heart broke so I phoned the hospital to let them know I am bringing her in.

They kept her overnight on a drip and did some more tests and x rays this morning. It was a tumor all the time. The Dr phoned me just after 10 this morning with the news. They missed it on the first x rays. There was nothing they can do for her anymore.

Ruby gave me the best 7 years of her life and I will miss her a lot. She is the one who licked my tears away when my whole life fell apart.

R. I. P my Ruby girl will always remember the good times.

Ruby update

Today Ruby went for her sonar and x rays. I am happy to report that her sonar was clear no obstructions or tumors.

Ruby has inflammation in her hips, shoulders and joints and will be on anti inflammatory and pain meds for the next 4 weeks. I must keep her quiet and warm for the next 4 weeks. So Ruby is sleeping indoors even if she don’t want to.

From tomorrow Ruby is going to be eased into a high protein diet. According to the doctor her metabolism is very fast. When she was small we had her on a special diet because she did not pick up weight. So now we are going back to basics for her again.

The doctor said before we know it Ruby will be back to normal and we will be playing ball again.

Now she is sleeping. I did managed to get her to eat and give her her meds.

Thank you for all your prayers. Ruby and I really appreciate it.
