    Well My ginger Tom Tigger hadnt seemed himself for a few days and started to breath heavily so on the 27th made an appointment with the pdsa for 4.20pm and took him in and he listened to his chest took his temp and gave him 2 jabs and told us to come back the next day so got home about 5 oclock and from the then on he just layed on the kitchen floor which was unlike him as he was so active and only 10 months old so at about 6ish he started gagging and reaching and there was a sort of high pitch screech so we decided to take him back as he was getting worse got to the vets at about 7 - 7.30 and he was really struggling to breath and breathing with his mouth open wide so they took him in and said they were gunna do an x-ray and some bloods so left and got home at about 8 only to get a phonecall at 8.20 to say they had found fluid on his lungs and it was blood and he just stopped breathing and passed away. we picked him up on the 28th and buried him in my mums back garden as we live in flats, he looked so peaceful. i miss him sooo much its like having your heart ripped out he was my baby im constantly crying all the time (sorry for the long post)

    Oh don't be sorry it is totally understandable. Such a sad story of one so young. I know you won't think so just now but time is a great healer and when you feel the time is right you will be able to open your heart to another who needs your love.

    So sorry to read your sad news...try not to blame yourself, it sounds as if you did all you could for him...you took him back to the vet the same day when he got worse & tried your best to get him help.
    Its especially sad to lose one so young but it sounds like he had a very much loved if short life {{hug}}

    So sorry for your loss.
    You did your best. You took him to the vet.
    Try not to keep blaming yourself. I think we always think if only we could have done more.
    It's a awefull thing to happen and crying is part of the bereavement you are going through.
    I hope soon happy memories of him will bring back some smiles.
    Many years ago we were in a simlar situation to you and we lost our 10 year old.
    Friends helped and also being on this forum too. I did adopt another little furry friend a few months later and that helped me.

    R.I.P Tigger and run free at Rainbow Bridge xx

    It's natural to feel sad hun, don't feel bad about that. You got him help from the vets and you loved him dearly. That's so much more than some poor souls get in their life.

    Hayley Im so sorry to hear your news. I think you did everything you possibly could to help him, and thankfully he went peacefully. Please try not to blame yourself. Remember how much he touched your life, but dont forget you also undoubtedly touched his. He was very lucky to have you.

    RIP lil man, watch over your mummy xxx

    I feel your pain and do not blame yourself it is all part of grieving process, i did it myself when i lost my dog last month. I still hurt now but realise he is free of his illness . its early days just remember the happy times your shared with him and stay strong.

    RIP Tigger x

    So sorry for your loss, I completely understand what your going through, I lost my beautiful dog on the 15th april and am finding it very difficult to come to terms with, there are some very kind people on this site and they are really helping me. Take care.
