|Thanks for the responses, I appreciate them. Just to clarify some things...
She didn't spend thousands of dollars for the hemolytic anemia. The dog was on medication that was inexpensive for a short period of time.
I do know that after she and her girlfriend broke up, she stopped paying for the dogs medication because the dog "seemed to be getting better." She didn't do this on any advice from a veternarian, she just didn't want to pay for the medication any longer if the dog "didn't need it."
This last time she went through a heat, she bled out like something had ruptured and that's when my friend finally took her in to the vet.
Previously, She was left unspayed for her whole life and lived with another male chihuahua in the hopes that she would get pregnant. Thankfully, she never did. She did have multiple false pregnancies her whole life (or so that's what my friend said).
BTW- the dog is female, not male. Not sure which poster referred to the dog as a he, but girl dogs are spayed, males are neutered. just fyi. male dogs also don't get pyometra, because you have to have a uterus to get that.
as for me being insensitive, maybe I am. She was really sad about the dog, but she's not in dire straights financially or anything. She certainly didn't make the same choices I would have made with my dog. it was hard for me to hear her tell me about the little chihuahua dying when she didn't have to have a bad death like that.
It's not like the little dog was hit by a car in some freak accident.
