Re: Water amount when using Lasix
- Hi Barbie
My Trixi was diagnosed with advanced HCM as a 13 weeks old kitten. She was
given months to live and has just passed her fourth birthday after a
struggle with meds and a heart attack last year. She is currently stable. Cats do
not listen to a prognosis.
As for your question.. when is it time to let go? You'll know, it's when
quality of life is poor, it's when the bad outweighs the good. I see it as a
final act of kindness and remember the kind words someone posted here
once.. a prolonged life should not be a prolonged death. This is only my
opinion, some would disagree. You have to make a decision you feel is right for
you and your family every time.
Nunu will let you know and then you will be with her to help her. For now
she is struggling to stabilise and all the meds are new. It's always
difficult the first few weeks as the medications start to work. You should see an
improvement soon I would think.
