Thanks for your thoughts. I am bringing my friend to the vet today. My plans had been to wait for the weekend, but I think that would only be a disservice to her.

My mother is trying to be helpful, but is actually making it harder. She keeps saying things like "maybe she needs to be hydrated more...maybe she needs potassium". I'm sure all of those things are true, but I really think it's only going to delay the inevitable. After all, I have been giving her fluids and feeding her by mouth for some time now. Forcing more food into her, or putting more needles into her....it will only lessen the quality of life that she does have (which is pretty low to begin with).

My mom had a cat who was in the final stages of Kidney Disease. She tried the SubQ Fluids in order to help him. When he did die, he ended up having convulsions. She said that if she had to do it again, she would have had him put to sleep as sooon as it was obvious he was going downhill.

I will definitely try to get into a Pet Loss chat tonight. I will need it!
