|I fear he died a horrible death and I wasn't even here to help him
or hold him.
I had gone away for a six day holiday leaving Bill(who is my ex spouse
Mork really well) in charge and as he had taken care of him and my
crew just recently.
I didn't worry too much(big mistake)but I made a few of those as did
Bill but the
ones he made were fatal. He tells me things were going along great
and then he ran
out of food(yeah right like I would leave without making sure that
base was covered)
anyway he emptied one bag and for some reason didn't see the other
the shelf below or look in the deep freeze for the other 2 containers
or call me
to say whasup where the food. He tried to feed him canned but he's
on a canned
food strike(that's why I cooked all the damn food)then he gave him
a shot anyway,
bad, very bad. He came that night to find Mork had an accident on himself,
he washed him then had Ben(My 16 yr old son) take him out, Ben told
he wasn't feeling well and not to give him another shot, well dumdedum
anyway, bigger mistake. The tenents called him at midnight to say Mork
siezuring in the basement, poor little guy and it's at this point that
he finally get
a hold of me. Tells me that Mork wasn't well and what he'd done so
I told him
to get some sugar in him and directed him to the container that's been
on my kitchen
counter unused for 5 years, I told him then to make sure he got some
food in him
too and to get him to the vet in the am(this was a mistake on my part
as I misjudged
how serious his decline was and should've insisted he get to the vet)Bill
to take him as he had no money and I went blank as I had a visa card
and I'm sure
I could've phoned that # in no problem(more mistakes all costly), if
he had phoned
me back to say he didn't respond then I would've but I never got that
call. When he came at 7 am Mork was in a coma and at that point he got
him to my regular vet
here in town and though he worked on him till 2 pm with me making desperate
calls all day it was just to late and he was too far gone. The vet
said he did start
to come out of it but kept going into siezures so he let him go.
Rest in Peace my little boy
and may your story help prevent another death!
Please don't ever give insulin if your dog
has not eaten.
Insulin CAN kill!
Deb thank you for sharing your story in the
hope that another
pet with diabetes will not suffer the same
fate as our Little Angel Mork.
