... I want to tell you how very sorry I am that you are having to go through all this. I have two female pugs and they are my 'babies' too! They are going to be ten years old this coming March. You didn't mention how old your dog is. I had another pug that was 16 years old (several years back) that I finally put to sleep. She couldn't pee or poo on her own any longer - she was completely deaf and going blind but as long as she wasn't suffering I held onto her and took care of all her needs. When I found a quickly enlarging growth on she tummy, I knew that she would probably not make it through surgery ... and even if she did, I wouldn't be able to push on her abdomen in order to empty her bladder since there would be an incision there. I believe that most creatures let us 'know' when it's time. The fact that your pet isn't eating or drinking causes me the worst concern for her. Dehydration can set in very quickly ... and that is a terrible condition to suffer. You could try purchasing a childs medicine syringe (at any drug store) and attempt squeezing water directly into her mouth and see if she will swallow. I'm glad that you took her to a different vet - it's always a good choice when the first one isn't getting any positive results. You and the vet have a decision to make. You have already spent a great deal of money and effort to help your 'girl.' Now you need to decide just how much further you are prepared to go - or I should say, how much further you can afford to go - while watching your beloved pet losing her health. A dogs instinct is to try and 'hide' their sickness. So no matter how awful you think she feels, chances are she probably feels even worse. She can't make any choices for herself - you are going to have to do that for her at some point. Through all of this you have shown your love for her by holding on. Prepare yourself for the possibility that you may have to dig deeper to find the greatest love of all ... the love to let her go. If and when that time comes, don't doubt any of the choices you've made ... you made them all out of your affection for her! Bless you for being such a caring pet owner!! :-) I wish everyone could be so committed and resposible. I wish you all the very best ... take care!
I'm so sorry for the situation. I agree with 4slenderthread, it might be time to let the dog go. She is so sick, and you have tried everything. There comes a time. I am so sorry.
