My dear friend will be entering the Rainbow Bridge tomorrow.
He has progressively gotten worse due to the medication treatments. This was a horrible disease that I would hope no one has to deal with. You can't win, you treat the disease only to cause other problems caused by the medication. He developed Muscular Atrophy from prednisone. Then started having trouble walking on one hind leg, then started with a rash that took away all his fur on one side of his face, having accidents in the house, etc.... but through all this still ate and wagged his tail!
He now has developed full blown lupus and possible kidney failure. Medications can be pushed, but the quality of life will never go back to where he was and will only keep getting blows from new medications.
Chance just turned 5 recently, so very sad, a young life cut short. Chance will be put down tomorrow, so he is resting at home today for one more night with his family.
