Kala

Pasted Graphic
Kala, who was an almost 13 year old Sheltie, departed from us today, all too soon and all too suddenly. She had been sick to her stomach in the night and didn't want to drink, eat, or go outside this morning. Not drinking was very unusual for her. It was almost always water, but occasionally she would imbibe. Anyway, we took her to the vet. The blood work showed inflammation and anemia. The doctor thought he could feel a mass under her rib cage which could have been bleeding internally. An X-ray confirmed a mass around her spleen. She was taken into surgery with the hope that a splenectomy would remove the mass, stop the bleeding, and she would be with us for a while longer. But it was not to be. The mass had spread to her other organs and couldn't be removed.

She was a good girl. A very good girl. 2/1/2005-11/6/2017


P.S. Check your dog's gums. If they're pale, have your pet looked at. I've had dogs for over 50 years and this is the first time I heard about this simple technique.
