Boots we will miss you
Boots passed away last night. The last few weeks he has been dropping some weight and I've been meaning to get him to the vet and Monday he started to have some labored breathing. The vet took some xrays and found that he had fluid around his lungs. He said there was a chance his thyroid wasn't working and Boots could be alright for awhile. He would need to take blood to find out but couldn't until he got the fluid out. The vet let me know that Boots could die at any moment and there was a really good chance that it could be heart disease or cancer. Yesterday he had me leave him at the vets so he could try to drain some fluid and get some blood but the two times the vet tried to get Boots out of the kennel Boots would start to freak a little so the vet would have to give him oxygen. Poor guy. The vet called me before they closed preparing me that Boots most likely wouldn't make it through the night. Boots was 14 years old and has been in my life the last 10 years. We are really going to miss him.
