this is hilda
this is alf
the bad news on our vet drop off today is...
zelda looks like she is in terminal mode..but...we are going to hook her up to IV's and take some blood and wait for the results tomorrow before if we decide to euthanize..it is PROBABLY very end stage kidney disease.
ruthie...the vet thinks it is not typical osteoarthritis...she thinks it is more likely profound and generalized rheumatoid arthritis..decent pain control will be a very huge issue. she says unless we put her on very high doses of steroids we won't help her very much (and even those will probably not do too much in making her feel better) plus the steroids themselves are going to cause her even more problems...so the long and the short of it is they are recommending euthanization since we can't much to improve the quality of life that she currently has. they have booked her euth for 2:30 and i will go in to be with her.
this so sucks when they get here too late for us to be able to do much to help them to feel better....ruthie and zelda could have done with some really good vet care a few years ago...then maybe things would be better for both of them now.
