Re: my baby is gone
- Dearest Emily,
I am so sorry that Coco went beyond the Rainbow
Bridgea and that it was so frightening. You certainly
did do the best thing for little Coco ... the therapy
for saddle thrombus for small animals (kitties) is not
guaranteed. Know in your heart and mind you did the
best thing! And certainly the most generous to free
her from suffering further.
See this link for more information and other details
(scroll down about 1/4 through the page):
'Other possible problems include blindness, which may
be caused by untreated high blood pressure; or limping
or an inability to use the legs, particularly the hind
legs - this may be caused by a blood clot in the aorta
which stops the blood supply to the legs (sometimes
known as a saddle thrombus). This is both
life-threatening and extremely painful, and you should
consult a vet as soon as possible. Affected legs are
likely to be cold to the touch. Cardiology Northwest
has some information on blood clots, as does
University of California at Davis. Weak legs (as
opposed to limping) may also have other causes, see
Index of Symptoms and Treatments. A low body
temperature may be seen in congestive heart failure.'
Cardiology Northwest outlines that there are no safe
or efficient ways to treat this ...
I hope this will help you a little ...
And know you did the best thing - may her Angel Kitty
Whiskers watch over you always!
