My girlfriend and I have had our dog Lola for 4 years. I cant begin to explain the joy this little dog puts in our hearts. Last month Lolas lymphnodes began to swell. She became very weak so we took her to the vet. The vet discoverd that her red blood cell count was very low. She has been on many meds, and there has been many tests done on her. the vet is still not sure what is worng. The vet keeps telling us Lola is and "odd case". The vet called us yesterday and said Lola isnt responding to the meds. She said Lola isnt going to make it. Ive been crying everyday, at home, work, shopping, it doesnt matter where i am. Its feels like a part of me is dying. I dont want to let go of her. She means more to me than i could have ever imagined. I hate the fact that there is nothing i can do to help her. If she was to get a bone marrow transplant then she has a good possiblity of living but my girlfriend and i are on a very fixed income. I dont know what to do, or how to feel.

I am so sorry for what you and your girlfriend are going through. Loosing a pet is the most difficult thing I have ever gone through. We lost our Beagle, Bonnie Lou this past June. We had her for 13 years. You feel so helpless when your pet becomes ill. You cannot sit there and explain to them what is happening to them. But know that you have taken very good care of her. She knows this and she loves you for the care you have given her. Please come back and let us know how Lola is doing. I will keep you in my prayers and pray that your vet is wrong. Clara

I am so sorry for what your going through, I was handed a similar fate with my baby April. She was diagnosed with IMHA, an attack on red blood cells. I tried everything, blood transfusion (2x), meds, blood tests - anything money could do. They sometimes just don't know what the problem is. So don't beat yourself up over the what ifs... Your doing all you can for your baby.
I know the pain your feeling, the confusion that comes with an illness. You just want the world to stop, just FIX my baby!! Keep coming back, we all understand what your walking through. Prayers for you and yours. Bob
