Poor Old Garfield! by TERRY S on 2 September 2009 7:35pm
Hi. Don and I got Garfield and Snoopy back from the kennels after we went camping and they told us that Garfield had not been well. The vet has told us he has a irreversible kidney and liver disease. Our choices were either to put him to sleep or put him on a drip and give him a special diet so we have a few more months, He will eventually have to be put down, but we wanted to give him a chance, so we chose the drip/diet option, and it's working well. He's definately better than he was and is home now. Please send him your love.

Aw, Bless him. I'm sending love and lots of hugs and kisses and prayers for the little fella. Please get well, Garfield

Oh, !! So sorry to hear about that. One of my friends went through the same ordeal a few years ago. She chose the hospice option as you did, and was able to have a few months of very high quality time with him. Prayers and hugs to you both.

Yerbie is crossing his toes for Garfield.

Poor Garfield! Glad to hear the drip/diet option is working well. How old is he? Sending him love.

You guys are sweet. Garfield and Don say thanks. Garfield says hello to Yerbie (curious to know where you got the name from - it's unusual)!

Suzulu: Garfield is 12 years old.

Update: Garfield went to the vet today and he's got a weeks worth of steroids, to help his kidney work. Ugh!

He's getting there!

Further updates will appear here.

Love GarfieldXX

Tosun is sending good wishes and woofs to Garfield. He has asked me to say that he hopes he feels well soon and it goes without saying that I endorse that.

Re: Poor Old Garfield! by TERRY S on 4 September 2009 6:44pm
Ta, very much, Spurs and Tosun. Much appreciated!
