When do I know she is suffering? Today she was able to spend a good 4 hours in the sun. Normally she head for the nearest tree and forget that she is a well behaved animal. Today she did walk around a bit but mostly just chilled in one sunny spot. She sat on my chest for about an hour. Normally she is pretty cuddly but not outside. Because I feel like she isnt enjoying the things that brought her great happiness is that her suffering or just my own?
I think its renal failure. Or course im not a Dr. but feel fairly knowledgeable of these guys. (Although its a whole different world when looking at your own pet) Her sympotoms worsen daily. Anyone have experience with death from renal failure? Is renal failure painful for these guys?
The only vet in this area that see repitles is a 45 minute drive. I rather her death be peaceful then an emergency trip. With that in mind do I plan things or do I allow a natural progression?
Seems silly but trust me I am not counting any chickens before they hatch. I just like to be well informed and well prepared especially in a situation when emotions run high.
Ill update tomorrow after her appointment. Praying for warm enough sun she can hang out the window and let her beard flap in the wind. 😀
