I am so so sorry to read this and please accept my condolences on the loss of your dear Buddy. :cry:

It does sound like he was not doing well at all...for whatever reason. What did the vet say/think? I am sure if there had been a glimer of hope, your vet would have offered an alternative to sending him to the Bridge.

It does sound like you did the right thing and I understand how much you are hurting right now. :grouphug:

There is no easy answer...just time. Good luck :goodvibes:

I think you made the right decision, it sounds like his condition deteriorated very quickly which is never a good sign. You made the right decision not to let him suffer.

I'm so sorry, uscfanhere :grouphug: It's never an easy decision but when you have to make it so quickly with little time to prepare, it's even more difficult. :( Sounds like you did the right thing for your Buddy.
