I feel very badly for you about losing your dog. It is crushing when more than anything you just want an explanation.

The tears will still come, anger and all the things we know comes with grief. Hopefully as a well educated and well healed health professional I can offer you a few terms used with people to use when looking for information about what was likely occurring with your dog. It is tough to find animal specific disease when we have no idea where to start. I would suggest terms like CHF (Congestive Heart Failure), Chronic Pulmonary Hypertension and COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease).

Keep in mind when you read about these things your Missy would have over-time known she had to take it easy sometimes if maybe too many goodies (take that back never too many goodies!!!! ) Once you and your family have taken sometime to share maybe make a gift to you local animal shelter or plan to plant a tree this spring look into some of my suggestions, we all know what it's like to be human, dog's bodies operate in this instance almost the same.

Again, I offer you my deepest sympathy and please share my ideas with your daughter to help her out if she needs it or you feel it will benefit her.

Thank you for your kind words. I do know Missy had heart problems and would die one day, I am not in denial about that.

I just KNOW it wasnt her time the day they killed her. You just had to be there and had to know her to fully understand, but they defied me, they stressed her out so bad they killed her.

That's my issue. We are going to make a donation to the Big Hearts Fund, its an organization for dogs with heart disease whose owners need help paying for treatment.


Sorry for your loss.


Thank you, its been devastating, but what hurts the most is thinking about what she went through that day and what she must have been thinking about why she was so happy that morning and how I could hand her over to someone who would do that horrible stuff to her. I feel so much guilt over that and I shouldnt have to feel guilty for being a good pet owner and taking my dog to the vet for a check up.

Banfield has turned me into a very bitter person and I have had to start taking antidepressants and anxiety pills due to this situation because Missy is all I can think about and all I ever do is cry. I hate Banfield so much!
