    Unhappy Comfort Care

    It is with great sadness that i report Junior in now in his final stages of life. Junior has been a big #172 (baby) boy since we recused him 10 years ago at the age of 3. He is now almost 14, and down to #100.


    His legs have been giving him problems for years now, and now his back legs keep giving out, trouble getting up, laying down, he is having accidents in the house and he is just starting to feel more pain. He is still eating, and wants to go for daily walks (we use to go for hours, now we go for about 30 minutes or so.) For years he has been on glucosamine for his joints, and DLPA for arthritis. His arthritis is now in his back and his hide legs muscles are really deteriorating. His vet said no other options are available, and we placed him on Deramaxx for comfort.


    Has anyone had luck with Deramaxx? I have read that some fur parents do not like the drug, and this drug as serious side effects. Junior has been on it for 2 days, with diarrhea, but no accidents and he seems in a better mood.

    We have two weeks worth of Deramaxx, enough for everyone to say goodbyes, and (sorry I cannot finish-I am in tears....)

    We recently had to let go of our 4 year old Malamute Hugo due to seizures. It is one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. I am so sorry you are having to go through this and I can only imagine how much harder it must be after having them with you for so many years.

    I am so so sorry for your loss of Junior, Renee. I know from reading your posts over the years that you did right by Junior and he had as a good a life as any creature could ask for: home, love, long walks.

    I am sorry that I cannot do anything for you to help you fill that big hole in your heart. May time help you heal your pain and that you will one day be able to think only of the fond memories of Junior.

    Big hugs.
