I went to the Rainbow Bridge this morning. Saturday I passed out in the back yard and mom and dad took me to the emergency vet. They did x-rays and found out i have an enlarged heart and lots of fluid in my airway and chest cavity. Kept me in an oxygen tank until 9 am on Sunday then 6 hours surveillance before they gave me the green light to go home - sent me home on lasix, enalapril and vetmedin. Went home ate hamburger and rice took my pills and got some rest. This morning I wasn't feeling very good hard time breathing mom took me back to the emergency vet and they put me back in the oxygen tank - mom called an hour after i was there to check on me and they said they couldn't give her any information yet as they were busy doing rounds - she called back an hour later - i had been there two hours now and they told her i was doing fine. About 40 minutes later they called mom and said she should get there i wasnt doing very good, the had seen me on my side in the oxygen tank, pulled me out and stuck a tube down my throat to try and get the fluids to drain. mom gets to the vet and they let her come back and see me i have a huge tube down my throat and they keep "dumping" me which involved holding me upside down over a trash can and letting blood run out of my mouth, after a few minutes of this they pull the tube out and by the time they got it back in place they tell mom i am going - my heart is stopping - i died on the table at the so-called emergency vet today.
