    Give some details on here of what’s been wrong with your dog and members will be able to share their experiences and offer advice and support.

    I’d remove your email address if I were you.

    I lost my second poodle just 4 weeks ago having lost my other poodle in May this year but I knew myself that it was the right thing to do even though my vet was in full agreement, I had very many visits to the vets with Pepe including specialists for cataracts and glaucoma but he developed kidney disease and when he would only eat with appetite stimulants and then only a very small amount we knew it was kinder to let him go. With Rusty the one I lost in May he had a growth near his liver and we could have had a biopsy done but as he was 13 and a half we discussed it with the same vet who agreed that it was not fair to put him through it. We are both heartbroken still about the loss of both of our beloved dogs but fortunately I had great trust in both the vets that treated them. I can only suggest you seek another vets opinion as to the right thing to do and also follow your own feelings even if it is not what you want, as to what is the best for your dog. My heart goes out to you as I know exactly how you feel.

    Hi and thanks for your reply. You would have had too see lulu and understand even tho she was 11 years old everybody who had seen her never be leaved her age and always put her about 3 years old. She was the only pup we kept with mum. Now mum is in a state off depression. I really feel that the has been some malpractice by the vets we used as in the morning she wolfed her food down and tried too eat her mothers. Then barking at cats and squirrels in the garden it was a normal day as always. Everybody knows there own pets. I except the emergency operation. What I can't except is the head vet who supervised the op told my wife it was a success and lulu was going too be OK. Then when I went to transport her to the dog hospital the junior vet said she had got 2 too 12 months too live. AND WHEN I spoke to the hospital that nite they said she was responding too treatment and doing fine then I took her back too the vets they kept her in for observation then hours later we had too put her too sleep. Something is just not rite at all. I know how lulu's mum is feeling as I feel in a state off depression myself and it keeps eating away at me.

    I am so sorry you had this experience with your vets all you can do now is make an extra fuss of your other dog and hopefully in time you will remember all the good times with Lulu. I am still heartbroken 4 weeks later about Pepe and it has brought back memories of losing Rusty too nearly 7 months ago but I am trying to go out more to help take my mind of it as we have decided not to get another dog at the moment.
