Letting go of your pet and best friend

Letting go of your pet and best friend

Today one year ago I had to let my little boy go. One of the toughest walks I ever had to make, to see the veterinarian.

My little boy suffered from the complications of a nerve sheath tumor and a nerve root tumor. Surgery was not a viable option.
Inflammation took over, causing large swelling and too much pain. It would have been selfish trying to keep him around for my own sake and put him through more suffering.
The veterinarian did not hesitate to agree with the decision even though I know she truly cared for him.
He was put to sleep in my arms. I felt numb I remember this as one of the worst days of my life. I felt like I failed to protect him.
Regret came over me I wish I would have never fed him kibble. I switched him to raw quality meat when we learned he had cancer and the improvements appeared within 48 hours.
If I had only made the switch sooner.
Living in the past does not help anyone, learning from the past can help everyone.
I now try to educate pet owners on better choices for their fur babies.
The silver lining in this cloud.
The image below is the last picture I took of my boy.
Rest in Peace Buddy, love you and miss you.
