I had a beautiful Beagle, named Ciara. She just turned 8 years old, last month. She seemed totally fine, up until about 2 weeks ago. Vets said she had an abscess tooth. We noticed that she looked really bloated in her stomach. Our last Beagle started to look that way too, and ended up having a huge tumor in her spleen and another one in her heart, and because of that, we wanted to have an X-ray done of Ciara's abdomen just to be safe. We wouldn't have even bothered having her teeth pulled and putting her through all of that if we knew she had tumors. The vet told us he didn't see any tumors, but she had an enlarged spleen. He never elaborated very much on that. After she had her teeth pulled, everything went downhill. She wouldn't eat, and she was throwing up and having diarrhea. We thought it was just from the antibiotics and the pain medication they gave her. Then all of a sudden her kidney levels went sky high and we ended up taking her to another vet. They put her on IV fluids and she wasn't responding to them. They ended up taking their own X-rays and said there was something blocking the view of one of her kidneys and it was pushing her intestines to the side. It ended up being a huge tumor on her kidney and it was wrapping around her other organs. I'm just completely devastated. I don't understand how all of this came on so suddenly. This tumor had to be growing inside of her for a while. Putting her down today was one of the hardest things I've ever done. I think she knew she was going to Heaven and I think the poor baby was ready to go. I feel so guilty that she had to suffer like this for two weeks. I just couldn't put her down without knowing what was wrong with her, even though I had a feeling it was a tumor. There was also a chance that it wasn't though, and I had to give her that chance. I just don't know what to do with myself. I've been crying and zoning out all day. It cuts like a knife, and then I feel numb, and then I feel that stabbing pain again. It's like it comes in waves. I miss my babygirl so much.
