Once your pet has died, do NOT read any more about the disease. You will definitely read things that will make you doubt yourself. Stop. Stop. Stop. You read more than most people and probably knew more than the vets at that point. Yes you maybe should've contacted Dr. Dodds out in CA right away rather than waiting until we realized nothing was working, but as we knew it, the vets were doing everything correctly. You went with what you knew at the time. You had read so much already. Fannie probably would have never responded to the medications, but maybe the surgical procedures wore her out and made the battle end more swiftly. At the time you knew this was the pretty standard course of action and we had to do it to figure out what was wrong. I don't know. But you put a lot of thought into each decision that was made. You tried very very hard for her. Please stop researching now. You are only hurting yourself. You did not kill your dog. You did not kill your dog. You did not kill your dog.
