"Someone passed on a phrase to me today .....
"The depth of your love, will equal the depth of your grief".
Oh - swell. At least I know I realllllly loved this dog, 'cause if I could afford it, I'd already be on a shrink's sofa by ..."
No - she did not show signs of illness beforehand. She had her yearly checkup two months prior, and the Vet even commented on how very strong and healthy she was for a 12 year old dog. Of course, I know, without MRIs or X..."
I just lost my dog suddenly.....within 5 mins went from ride in car....wanting my dinner....sat next to me and died. I am a nurse and there was nothing....only knew when she did not follow me to bed??? sadsad
I am so sorry - same thing happen to our dog.
HGE killed my dog. My dog died in three hours. A dachshund/beagle mix named Ginger.
She threw up 1AM then began urinating and defecating diarrhea with dark blood. While I was trying to locate a 24 hour vet in this back water (Bluffton, SC) she then begun to hemorrhage bright red blood and passed away on the way to the VET.
Note: She had a bit of diarrhea earlier in day but no sign of blood – I know as I used white paper towels to pick it up – no blood. I am writing to warn all pet owners of this disease HGE. Learn about it.
