gus passed at the vets at 1230 today

Carol  ·  Jun. 18, 2007

we talked about possibly IV therapy, inserting a feeding tube to get some nutrition into him and sedation with multiple enemas and manual disempaction to clear out his profoundly obstructed bowels. but when push came to shove both the vet and i thought it was supremely unfair to even attempt any of it as he so obviously just wanted to be done. he relaxed immediately into his pre-med, it was the first time i have seen him comfortable since he arrived. he slipped away peacefully and i truly feel he was grateful to be let go.

rest in peace little gus, i am sorry we couldn't make everything right again.



You tried Carol and sometiems it is all we can do and he takes that with him.


Thank you Carol for letting him go. Rest in peace Gus, you will be missed.
