Our 12 year old German Shepherd died last night, at home less than a week after our cross country move. She had been having trouble using her hind legs, which we assumed was arthritis & were treating as such. Yesterday, she lost all use of her back legs & became completely incontinent of bowels & bladder.
We just moved here, so we were going to look for a vet today. Last night, Dh was sitting with her–she was a total Daddy’s Girl, her breathing became shallow, she looked at Dh & just stopped breathing.
I suspect she had hemangiosarcoma, which took the life of her half brother. It’s very fast growing. A tumor would have ruptured & she would have bled out.
She was a very pretty & nice girl. We definitely were not ready for this.
