Default Had to put my Husky down today

My best buddy Logan, he's been having seizures since August. We've been trying to manage them with meds but they kept happening. Meds made him a zombie and his quality of life sucked.

We were trying a new med after he had a seizure last Monday. He hadn't been right since the seizure and Saturday he was having trouble breathing, was vomiting, and his cheeks were flapping and he was just not right. Got him to the emergency Vet and x-rays revealed his esophagus was loaded with kibble. Basically the seizure caused his esophagus to stop pushing his food and meds down to his stomach. He was suffering and no amount of treatment was going to be successful. We had to let him go today. He would have been 5 on June 7th.

He was the sweetest, friendliest Husky you ever met, everyone loved him. I am beside myself with grief as well as the family.

We have all been where you are now and it just friggen' hurts....bad. Sorry for your loss. Only time will make the hurt better.

When the hurt subsides a bit, though, don't make the mistake I made......go find a new buddy. We think, "damn, I don't want to go through that again," but it's really best for us that we do....the good times outweigh the bad, and it isn't even close.

Sorry man, we had one many years ago that looked exactly like yours... Died of heart attack ata rest area during trip. He was a wonderful dog... I avoid that highway now.
They're both running around together chasing bunnies now...
