Comment on Pet loss and self-forgiveness by SB.
I’m so sorry for your loss. I did exactly the same with my 10 year old dog. She was my world. She had several bouts of gastroenteritis and one time wasn’t eating or drinking so I took her straight to the vet. She was put on a drip and came home and recovered well. The vet said it’s not so bad if they’re still drinking. Next time she was ill but still drinking I decided to wait to take her to the vet. By the time I took her she’d deteriorated so quickly they advised me to have her put to sleep. I am so broken, one silly mistake and my best friend and companion in life has gone. I feel for you, I know how it feels. We’re only human and thought we were doing the right thing at the time.
