Hi we had a euthanasia booked for our 4 year old cat after he ingested a small amount of anti freeze. ( don't know how this happened he is an outdoor cat) at any rate I am beating myself up because I wonder if we should have tried one more treatment at the vets. I was torn between not wanting him to suffer and die alone at the vets. FYI the vet had not giving him any chance...but when we arrived his vitals were decent..l maybe if I had put him on an IV and had his bladder emptied.... it's over now and wrong thinking but I keep wondering what if. Everything happens so quick, at home he hadn't moved much in 2 days no food no water no pee. He was on morphine for the pain.
I just have to believe the vets knew best. I will get over the nagging feeling that I messed up some day I hope.
Thank for listening.
Love my Pogo.

I am so sorry for the loss of your Pogo. Given what you described, you made the decision out of love and the best of tough options. You acted out of love to not prolong pain and suffering when the vet said there was no other option. Says a lot that you put your cats well being (above your own wish to keep him here , thereby prolonging his suffering in this case. Of course it all still hurts; your beloved pet was taken away... there is healing to do. I hope it helps to know u made the best decision in a tough circumstance. ((Hugs))

Thanks, I tend to revisit the day we had to say good bye rather than all the beautiful moments. I am working on thinking of the days when he was alive and healthy.
