I lost my beautiful dog max on 1 April - he was ill on good Friday went to Vets who gave him anti sickness jab and antibiotics - we went back Saturday as he couldn’t keep water down he was hospitalised and that evening they told me it was pancreatitis but he was comfortable I went to see him Sunday morning and he wasn’t great - lunchtime they said he was picking up 3pm she rang to say he had died. He was such a life force I can’t take it in. I go over and over if I missed something. He had had diarrhoea which I had been Vets twice for and had been a bit shivery but he had been groomed on 1 March and it had been cold. I’m driving myself insane as I can’t get him out of my head and sob daily as I’m so
Upset. I feel I let him down

I feel for you. I lost my beautiful Dakota 17 years ago with the same illness. I left him at the vets on Friday for IVs and was told he would be fine. They called me Saturday morning to say he passed in the night. I feel guilt and sadness because he died alone. This happens so fast that it's so hard to accept. You feel as I do that we left our babies down but we didn't. It was out of our hands. They were called home, it was their time. I know this is so hard but I can feel the love you have for him. You will cry and be hard on yourself but please know that your baby knew you loved him with all of your heart. Even I still feel the guilt of not doing something anything even after 17 years. We will continue to cry and miss to the end of our days. Try to find comfort in knowing you made a journey with him and remember the memories that you shared with him. In time you will start to heal but give your grief and pain time. We love and because we love them we will always wonder what we could have done differently. They will always love us and will be waiting for us when it's our time. I hope you can find comfort and support in knowing you are not alone, ever.
Love and doggie hugs

Thank you so much - it’s just such s horrible way to lose a dog - and it was so unexpected. I understand it is quite common as well. Thank you for your kind words and I know eventually I will come to terms with this but it is still such early days.
