Crackers went to the Rainbow bridge today at 2:20 PM. He had not been eating for about 2 weeks, went to the vet week before last and tried some antibiotics, did an ultrasound and found a mass on his spleen. His bloodwork came back bad too - numbers were way too high! Took him in for exploratory surgery this past Monday and they removed his spleen and did a biopsy on his liver. He stayed in the vet hospital until Wednesday on fluids. Mom took him home Wednesday in an effort to get him to eat. He refused to eat and had to be force fed, was on a potassium supplement we had to force down his throat too. This morning his gums were white and his skin had turned yellow. When we weighed him today he was down to 11.2 pounds - he dropped over 3 pounds in two weeks. Mom made the most difficult decision of her life and had him put to sleep today. She held him in her arms as his little life left his body. We then drove to Ossian and had him cremated so we can keep his ashes with his sister Cookie's. I hope he and Cookie have found each other at the Rainbow Bridge and are happy. Mom has a big hole in her heart now that will never be filled.
