pomeranian? I used to have one like her, she died in september though she would have been eleven this january.

Yeah, my mom raises them, we kept this one from our last litter...

What happened, bro? :<
#78 - huntergriff (03/21/2016) [-]
basically, we had to put her along with another dog to keep her company, a miniature pincher out in the back yard in the summer of 2014, after my mom and grandmother both had surgery. She was doing fine for a year, I'd go out and play with them and feed them and stuff and then in august of last year, we think she got sick and she just stopped eating and rarely drank anything. I went out there one day in September of last year and she was gone. broke my heart.

Damn, didn't anyone take her to the vet once she stopped eating and drinking?

Loss of appetite is usually the first sign that there's an underlying health problem, and once they won't drink it's only a matter of time without medical care...

So you mean you still don't know what happened? Poms typically live up to twenty years unless they have any life-threatening health defects before that... : /

We got screwed by the medical bills from the surgeries and shit, sadly. Hell, we're still getting screwed, actually. We couldn't afford it at the time.

She was a wonderful dog too. She used to cuddle up with me and watch the star wars movies with me and she used to cuddle with me whenever I was sad, he used to wake me up for school when I was a kid, and she'd climb in my lap and watch me play video games a lot, she seemed to enjoy it too.

I'm sorry to hear it buddy. If I were in that position, I'd beg, borrow or steal to get mine to the vet. Even fundraisers and stuff can earn hundreds in a matter of days, and if you call around some vets still accept payments... none of that helps now, though. What's done is done. I don't envy you. : /

I don't want to make it worse, but it sounds a lot like what happened to one of our pups - she stopped eating so we called the vet and were told to keep a close eye on her for any improvement or worsening, and once she stopped drinking, we got her in immediately - by the time we drove her into the office, she was almost completely unresponsive.

It was as simple as severely low blood sugar; she had to have some corn syrup rubbed on her gums and she was back to normal by the next day - but not taking her in to have her checked meant she would have died, no question about it. Poms are heavily prone to it.

Now she's going to be a year old next month, hasn't had any problems since and is the happiest, most spunky little pup in the world. We keep some on hand at all times now, and make sure they go to their new homes with a little dropper full of it and a care sheet on how to use it if ever they even start to show signs of that again.

Future reference for any dogs you have; at least call a vet, whether you can afford the bills or not? Sometimes it's actually a really simple, inexpensive, but life-saving solution...

Oh, I plan on calling the vet if something like this ever happens again, god forbid. this whole experience fucked me up pretty bad, I can't even go out in the backyard anymore, it's just too painful, y'know?
#83 - Dember (03/21/2016) [-]
Yeah I do. Honestly I can't fathom why someone wouldn't have done that for her the first time; surely at least one adult in the household would have known that a dog suddenly acting off and refusing to eat or drink means something is very wrong, usually life-threatening... : /

Mine mean the world to me, if they even get an upset stomach from eating something that didn't agree with them, I watch them like a hawk. We're going through a financial struggle as well but I'd sell my organs on the damn black market before I let them go without medical care if they need it.

Grandma actually told me to keep an eye on her and hand feed her, so I did that too. she did wag her tail slightly while i was out with her on her final days.

Yeah... no offense bud, but grandma's not a vet. Failure to provide veterinary care to the point that a dog suffers or dies is actually considered animal cruelty in most first world countries, if you'd gotten caught you'd probably be facing fines and jail times. : / Financial problems or not, negligence is negligence.

I'm sorry about your dog. I hope it doesn't happen again...
