My little Angel baby Mike!!
I lost my baby little Angel Mike on January,19th. He was the love of my life and always will be. He was such a fighter, but after 6 months trying to get him better, we decided its time to let him go. He was my only pet and lived with us for almost 12 years.
I feel upset with vets since we always gave really good care of his health. However, I did not find the educated Internal Medicine Specialist able to control his inflammatory bowel disease on time. Last year, we were going to his vet every single month, sometimes twice a month, then an Internal Medicine vet that made an ultrasound and X-rays and told us that he had cancer and it is spread through all his body. We were devastated and took him to a holistic care vet for his last days, he was eating and drinking very well, we were happy.
Three months later, he vomited for first time and we thought that it is time to let him go and went to an emergency hospital to know that he did not have cancer, he had a severe inflammatory bowel disease and inflammation due to his previous treatment of fluconazole. However, he already lost 40% of his weight. We tried to fight with this Internal Medicine vet and a nutritionist, but was not possible. Mike with his low weight was not able to accept a treatment based on corticoids, and immunosuppressant's drugs.
It is so hard to know that even though I gave 100% of your time, and also money to fight for this illness, you could not help him.
Mike was my mom's emotional support schnauzer for several years after my father passed, then angel Mike moved to USA to be my husband's companion while I was working overseas. He helped all our family with his love for years. House is empty now, I have never imagined how sad can be to lost a pet.
We were a pack of three My husband, Mike, and me. We were always together and happy. We used to travel together, went to vacation, beaches, etc.
We are trying to remember the good memories of him, how a great, intelligent, and lovely dog.
Miss you my baby Angel Mike!!
