    So many ppl have said in the last few days. Why would u spend that money on her ($600)she is old and lived a good life and u don't want her to suffer.

    I'm not made of money and yes I will have to do a few double shifts to catch up and pay off credit card.

    But by spending that money I was able to find out that it is something treatable and even if it gives me just a few more good months or whatever I get with her.

    My mum all preachy was like " u no she won't live forever, sometimes u need to pts". I no she won't live forever and it will break my heart on the day where I have to make that decision to do that but I no I will have done everything to know that there is no chance of a recovery ( withl good quality of life).

    I work in a nursing home I see people suffer everyday and I firmly believe in euthanasia for humans as well as animals but I also feel that u must do everything u can before that decision is made.

    Tessa has given me 16 years (so far) of companionship. from the age of 11 I have had the most amazing BFF who helped me through some very tough times. And I am forever in her debt. my now 29 year old brother still refers to himself as Uncle kris and will call from other side of country just to see how Tessa is going

    From the test results I have also learnt that she has minimal arthritis, heart lungs and kidneys are in excellent condition and she is pretty healthy for a 16 year old.

    Anywho it's nearly 3 on new years day and there USA cruiser with my name on it. Nite

    Sometimes people can just be so shallow. It is something I could hear my mother say too. It's not because a dog is old that they lose the right to live! And the money comment... Grrr!

    I know you would have always done what is right for Tess and would not have hesitated to end her suffering if you knew she was not going to get any better. But she had a treatable condition that wasn't life threatening and as a bonus you found out her body is not at all ready to give up yet.

    I hope she is feeling a lot better now.

    how long until you know whether treatment for the infection has done it's job? Is this something she can completely recover from?

    Well we go back tuesday when the vet reopens for a check up and see how everything is. I think then or when the antibiotics are finished and infection gone they will prob run more tests for cushings disease. I know that that's prob likely cos she drinks alot, wee's more often, and has that pudgy cushings body.
