Default Skylar

Just had to make one of those selfless decisions that you never want to make. I told the vet it was time to let Skylar go. This afternoon she started to prolapse her intestines so she went back to the vet. A large portion was already dead. He did find healthy intestines and put them back in, but we are pretty sure it would have just happened again if we didn't do a surgery she probably wouldn't have survived anyhow. She was 10. She put up a really good fight and she was alert and happy when she left, so that's how I will remember her.

For those of you who didn't see the long battle I have had with Skylar, you can find it in the health sections and emergency sections. She cut her tail back in July. Since then we've had two amputation surgeries, a battle GI issues, success, and more failure. Its been close to 3 months since it all started. She put up one heck of a fight!

I am so sorry.Those words just don't even touch what both of you have gone through.Know in your heart that you both did everything possible and fought hard for her.May your sad memories soon be able to let the happy ones take over.Skylar fought a hard battle and so did you. Run freely now sweet Skylar in your perfect pain free new spirit and keep all the other fuzzers company til we all meet up again.

Sorry for your loss. I had a mom last year that delivered 3 babies. The babies were about 6 weeks old when I noticed blood from the mom's private parts. I hand fed her took the babies away. The vet had her for 3 weeks when he told me she passed away. He did a necropsy and found an abcess on her intestines. He said no matter what she would have died.

Sorry for your loss Amanda I know you fought so very hard for her, and took such good care of her! Its such a hard decision to make, but you did absolutely everything you possibly could. Take comfort it all the good memories you had with her, I am sure there are many! I can tell you loved her very much and I know you cared for her greatly even through her last day.

Thanks everyone! I am going to take a photo of the last pic the vet took of her before she had her tail amputated. You all have to see how pretty she was.
