@farmgirl2106: yeah, we had this one lanced, anthey sewed her ear toegether. She got another one soon after, but I couldn’t afford the surgery, and so it crumpled, and I felt horrible 🙁

We have 2 pups now. The white one, also a shih tzu, we got a few months before we put our old one down. The brown one, a cocker spaniel, we got about 3 weeks after.

@soon2beMrsGP: Thanks. It was really difficult for me. It was a whole saga. We’d had her in to the vet for something in Nov, and they basically told me she was going to die over night (congestive heart failure) so I left work, and thought I had to do it right then – I was devestated. (think about a 28y/o woman crying hysterically on the phone with the vet – classy!)

anyways, she survived the night, and the next day, etc. and then we took her in a few weeks later to lance her ear, and they had to do all this bloodwork, and xray her heart to make sure that she could withstand the meds to put her under, and it turns out that even though she had a murmur and fluid in her heart/lungs, it was compensating just fine – wasn’t enlarged or anything. So she lasted until March when she just started fading away.
