(I switched the video to a clip from six months after her CRF diagnosis.)
After a week of antibiotics and asthma treatment to see if recent labored breathing might improve, the vet felt she was doing as well as she could.
Though she was compensating for her issues, Christine and I felt we'd just be prolonging things if we held on any longer.
She passes almost at age 18. She was diagnosed with chronic renal failure at age 10 but responded well to subcutaneous fluid treatment, so she had quite a long and happy life.
In human terms she was in her 80s. The video above was shot shortly after the CRF diagnosis when we thought she'd be passing soon.
Seven years later we have to say adieu.
