Subject: [Felvtalk] Duncan is gone


> Sadly, I had to have Duncan euthanized last night. He was suffering from a 
> URI and getting Clavamox, and the URI was clearing up, but he was still 
> sluggish. On Sunday night he seemed disoriented, and was crying as if he 
> was in a lot of pain. I rushed him to the emergency vet and then to my 
> regular vet Monday morning. The vet called me at 5:30 as I was driving 
> home from work to get Duncan's food and told me that he thought Duncan was 
> very close to dying. Test results had showed Hemobartonella and he was 
> fadi
> ng fast. We talked about possible treatments but Dr Leathers felt that it 
> would be best, and kindest, to put him down.
> He deteriorated so quickly - just a couple of days ago he was eating and 
> walking around. Unfortunately, I assumed he just wasn't 100% because of 
> the URI. I will not make that mistake again. He has never shown any 
> symptoms in the year that I've had him. My other two positives, who lived 
> with him, are fine, but I'm going to have them checked out at the vet next

> I lost my 18 year old cat last Monday so this hasn't been a very good past
