Hey FarmerOwen! You are right, focus on those you can save.

Its tough to see...sucks that often I feel as a tech either the vets in charge of the case, or the owners..just hold on so long --try too fucking hard. This particular animal had a $15,000 bill at the end of it all, ten grand was in blood transfusions of various types... There is a lot of suffering that there is no way an animal can understand. I know the owners might mean well but well, its sucky on all sides. Pain, suffering, and totally horrible quality of life is hard to witness. the dogs have no idea what is going on...but the owners just want it so badly... :(

Today went well. I did carries but since the football field was till full of snow, I did it along side it sorta in the parking lot. A lot easier to carry on the cement versus the grass.

Not sure the longest distance before I stopped, but i think it was better then last week. I measured the total amount with my car, 0.6 of a mile all together.

Sad but true Brute. What a bummer for sure. I've never thought of blood transfusion on a dog/pet? I guess 'drawing the line' can be tough, on any patient.
And we all hope it never comes to that, but it has for all pet owners I suppose.

My "80 year old step-son"...A.K.A....Jasper the Beagle, turns 12 this Monday. Still going strong.
Kiss your children, and your kids!
