Unhappy RIP Skye

I'm totally lost for words right now. My poor Skye has passed. I got the call from the vet's earlier in the evening. She was on an IV drip the whole time because of her dehydration. She vomited at least a dozen times and had difficulty breathing starting in the afternoon, according to the aide. I went to see her at around 6pm and she was better, walking sitting up and she even got to sit with me for a while, I didn't know that was going to be the last time I see her. She passed away at 10:15pm. The vet attributed it to failure to thrive on top of shock and dehydration. Good bye, Skye. Run free at the bridge.

Oh no! I am so sorry. Bless you for taking care of Skye and trying so hard to help her. You did everything you could and she knew you loved her.

I'm so sorry...:'(
Skye is at the Bridge now, she was given a name, and claimed by you, even tho' it was a short time she had here...she was cared for, and loved...
She touched your heart, and a part of her, will always live there...

Much sympathy. It's hard to lose a poor little critter like that, one that is so cute and so needy. You did what needed doing, thank you for your effort. Sometimes it's just not to be.
