My nine-year-old Becca had a neck injury last week. I took her to a specialist for acupuncture and laser. The vet did this multiple times, and gave medication and her pain continued. I could not bear to watch her in pain, vet suggested taking her to surgery center three hours away. The surgery was going to be $6000. There also was no guarantee that it would make a difference, I was concerned about putting her through the traveling, testing and surgery. My adult son thought it was too expensive. I put her down. I am so sad, lost, hurt, second-guessing whether I did the right thing. I did not get good guidance from the vet I took her to her or my regular vet. They all were too busy to help me think through this. I am angry that no one stopped and took a minute with me to help me sort this out. It hurts so bad. I’ve gone through this before but never like this. I’m 63 years old. She was my soulmate dog, I loved her so much. She did not deserve to go through anything like this at all, was never her fault. It was my fault. I do have her brother Anderson Cooper thank goodness.

I am so sorry that your vet didn't take the time to help you. We trust them to help our pets and thus help us. I so sorry you have to endure the pain of losing Becca. I know your heart is broken and your pain is deep. I lost my heart dog last September and still grieve for him everyday. It's not fair that their lives are so short. Termy was my rock, he made me feel needed and loved, now all there is left is loneliness and long, very long days. I hope we see them again someday. What a reunion. It wasn't your fault, you did what was best for Becca at that moment, at that time. We always second guess ourselves, I still do. They love us no matter and will never judge us for our decisions for they love us unconditionally.
Love and doggie hugs
Termy's mom
