Thank you both for your kind words (and for the article.) We made the difficult decision to euthanize her yesterday. Her intake was too low and the lasik dehydrated her. We discontinued the lasik on Saturday, took her to the vet for IV fluids on Sunday. They also gave her an injectable antibiotic, discontinued the clindamycin, and gave her a vitamin B12 shot to boost energy and appetite. She ate well Sunday night so we were hopeful. Unfortunately, without the lasik, her little lungs filled back up with fluid and her breathing was painful - retractions/nasal flaring. Tuesday night she stopped eating. It was a difficult decision for our family, especially given her young age, but was the right decision for Willow.
