Our 18 year old dog Honey has been ailing for the last few weeks...we think she's getting little doggy transient ischemic attacks...her balance has been off, she's been drained of energy most of the time, and her bladder control seems to be suffering.

Tonight we took her to the emergency vet because she fell over, lost bladder and bowel control and was panting with her tongue hanging way out. She seemed to have minimal muscle control, as well.

She's stable now, and they've got her in overnight for observation. She's got an IV for fluids and electrolytes, and she's all tucked in under a fleece blanket. She looked totally wiped out when we went in to say goodnight.

I'm not ready to say goodbye to her just yet, but it seems like that day may be coming up sooner than I thought it would have, even given her age. She's just declined abruptly over the last few weeks, and I'm starting to think her race may be run...

Work tomorrow is going to be hell. Send happy thoughts to my dog, would you, LJ?

Darth Vader and myself wish you and Honey the best. *hugs*

18 years old though... that's amazing.

If my first Scottie were still with us she'd have been 18 this year.

Good vibes heading out to your dog.

My well-wishes are with you and Honey, Chris. <3.

Om Mani Puppeh Hum. Om Mani Puppeh Hum. May the doggie be well upon the rising of the sun.

from someone who has gone through WAY too much pet trauma,
my thoughts are with you and your doggie.
