Bama, my loving dog
Hello, I had a 9.5 year old white miniature schnauzer called Bama that passed on Sunday (18AUG19) so sudden. He was healthy when I left for a week for a work meeting and when I came back, he seem healthy. Bama just had his check up five months ago and was due for another. He greeting me when I came home and seem healthy on walks and play. That was on Thursday and on Saturday, my wife took our dog to the vet to get his updated shot's and Bama had lost some weight which the vet wanted to check him out. We got the call that he had extreme diabetes and that he was going to die. They recommend us to put him down right away but I didn't want to. I just couldn't do that. The next day (Sunday), he wasn't the same. Try taking out for a walk (3 times) and wasn't himself. Very sluggish and pee a lot. He even peed three times inside between 9-2. At that point, crying my eyes out, having a tough time telling my wife to call the vet cause I didn't feel he will make it any longer. I am so heart broken. Been crying so much for the past five days.
