Hi Dr Dan M
I am afraid we hit the brick wall we could not control her temp on thursday the vet gave her another anti-inflammatory shot and her temp dropped back to normal.
Exactly a week ago the same happened after the anti-inflammatory her temp dropped to normal the same day and maintained for three days and then started rising again.
In a bid to try and get to the bottom of the problem the vet sedated her Monday morning passed and took a number of x rays which showed up abnormal colouring in her lungs and also an abnormality in her throat.
Given her age and that she had lost 3.4 kilos over a two week period I reluctantly decided to put her to sleep as long as she was sedated. She was in some pain however very hard to tell how bad she was walking very slowly and far from being her normal self she was maybe masking her pain which I could not stand.
When she went to sleep I was with her until she dropped off she seemed content if thats the correct word.
We are missing her terrible I keep looking around expecting her to appear however thats not going to be.
Thank you for your second opinion I think you confirmed what I had in my own mind.
Kind Regards and thanks
George and Bebe
