You know I have lost a child due to early childbirth. He was deemed by advanced medical professionals to be a vegetable and on life support throughout his entire life and my ex husband and I had to decide to take him off life support after fighting for 3 months. SO I guess now I'm a murderer? She was my baby. I did what I could with what info I had from PROFESSIONALS. Sorry if you or anyone else doesnt like it. But I cry a lot because of her passing. I came here to get it out and grieve. So sad people cant just allow someone to do that. I thought the pitbull people were bad but now Ive seen worse. At least you werent as completely disrespectful as the other poster.
You thought the pitbull people were bad??? You are obvious a very ignorant person!!! I have no idea what this statement is suppose to mean. Euthanasia for people... Totally agree with it... I don't think people should suffer. We are able to keep are dogs from suffering but have to watch people suffer when they can't do it any more. No one called you a murderer. A dog was in your care and was neglected. Poor advice from your vet and animal control?? Then do something about it but but I can't believe and i certainly hope it isn't the case but i would think any vet would tell you your dog needs to be seen! And back to your pitbull comment you need to do your homework. There is nothing wrong with putbulls or "pitbull people" the problem is terrible dog owners and ignorant people supporting BSL. I've rescued a lot of pitbulls and have yet to see a mean one. And if you think that ban doesn't apply to you then you better have proof you have purebreed boxers because I've heard of so many boxer getting caught up in this mess. I believe it was the Toronto Star accidentally posted a boxer picture on an article on pitbulls. It was retracted but again an ignorant person educating more ignorant people and the get comments like the one you just made.

My post isn't meant to upset anyone. It upsets me when people stereotype against breeds. Any dog can be vicious. I believe number 1 attacks are from labs and number 2 are cockers. It's the people that raise the dogs that are the problem. I don't even think pitbulls hit that top 10 list. And obviously the 2 I mentioned are popular dogs so probably have a higher percent to bring them to the top. I've seen so many dogs killed because of BSL. And in Ontario there are parts of that law that apply to any dog.

After reading all the posts however (and I did not want to be the first to say this but it has been said & needs to be said) PLEASE perspective & current dog pet parents:

Although you may love your dog as much or perhaps more than anyone else, if you genuinely cannot afford to take your puppy or dog to a vet in what appears to be an emergency, please give serious consideration to not owning a dog right now until your financial situation is improved.

Veterinary care can very easily run into the many hundreds of dollars and even into the many thousands in nearly a moment's notice - as in this case. If you are going to hesitate for even a minute in providing your dog with emergent professional care @ the moment of a crisis, you are truly not prepared for pet parenthood just yet: it's a grim reality & has nothing to do with your innate ability to love & nurture. It's cold hard economics. Owning a dog is a responsibility and part of that responsibility is the ability to provide for them financially 100% of the time.

PLEASE if you see any signs of unexplained bleeding/white or pale gums/neurological issues/etc. do not come onto this forum to ask for advice nor call family members nor communicate with friends...your dog needs to be taken to a veterinarian without any delay for any reason. If this means writing a post-dated check (most vets will accept in my experience) & attaining a second job, or borrowing money from someone or whatever: you must not delay under ANY circumstances.

If none of those options are at all possible: please, again, wait to adopt these very precious family members who deserve all the dignity & care that other members do.

I pray for this little soul. I pray she meets again the ones she loved & who loved her at the bridge. I am sorry for your loss, truly. But let's strive to only lose those who cannot be saved no matter what type of professional medical intervention is provided. In those cases, it is God's will.

I don't want to beat a dead horse, but I agree that this puppy suffered a great deal and there was no need for it. I understand that you said you got help from 2 vets and a vet tech, but honestly if I were in your shoes and I could clearly see my puppy was still in such serious condition and suffering I certainly would've gone to the ER or at least gotten her into another vet for a second opinion ASAP. I could not and would not be willing to stop my fight to "fix" my dog knowing the amount of pain it was in. When we take on a pet it's our responsibility to make sure they get all the medical attention that they need when they need it. No matter what the cost or how far we have to travel (and I know all to well how cost and travel can be huge major problems), this is what we sign up for when we get a pet especially when it comes to an emergency situation where pain is involved.

Anyway, what's done is done. I'm glad your puppy is no longer suffering such pain. If you plan on getting another dog (any pet for that matter) in the future, I would start now to come up with a better system so your next dog won't suffer the same fate. By coming up with a new plan I mean do some research on vets in your area (even if they're far away) to make sure you have at least two possible vets to go to when needed. If your vet truly would not see her in such a serious condition than that's not a vet that you should be dealing with anyway. Find one who will be there when you need them. Putting money aside now for when medical emergencies arise would be great so money won't be a factor or at least not as much of a factor should anything go wrong. Make sure you're able and willing to get medical help if needed before bringing a new pet home.

I also wanted to say that I strongly disagree with your comment about "pitbull people". Not all pitbulls are bad nor are all pitbull owners. Sure there are some bad apple owners who create bad apple dogs, but at the end of the day this is true for all breeds. There are people out there who probably refer to us as "boxer people" because of a bad experience they had although the majority of us (at least here) are really great, caring people who love our dogs.

Again, I'm glad your puppy is no longer suffering. RIP Ella.

I am far from heartless. That is why your post upset as much as it did. While others might be buying into the I'm a victim, whoa is me story that you took such great time and detail to write, all I saw was unnecessary pain and suffering over a course of several days.

I now understand that this is a financial issue. If one of your 3 babies needed to go to the ER you would do it in a heart beat, as would any parent. Regardless of cost you would figure out a way to get them medical attention. Well this is how we feel about our pets. Whether you have to borrow money, charge it to your credit card etc it is our job to make sure that our pets are never suffering. This is why I strongly recommend that you take out Pet Insurance on any future pets.

Again, sorry for your loss. But I strongly agree with Kari (2manydogs) here. Truthfully, when I read your post, I was very angry that Ella had to suffer the way that she did, for as long as she did ...

RIP Ella... May your tiny soul be free of the pain you've suffered. May you be restored to the full, bouncy puppy that you once were and may you be free to run and play at the bridge to your heart's content.

Kari, Jansen, Dyson, I wholeheartedly agree. That's all I will say on the matter.

I am very sorry about the loss of Ella.

I would like to remind you that this is a forum where people are able to voice their opinions and offer their viewpoints without being rude and confrontational.

Please keep all replies civil and free of obscenities. Failure to do so will result in the closure of this thread.

(I see that Goudasmom already posted the guidelines.)
