We,mother Kaco and daughter Saya, are working on dogs and cats conservation activities.This is our activities' blog. We hope to share the information with many people, and we also would like to transmit the information. We started the activities in earnest in 2005.

うめこさん 旅立ちました Ms. Umeko Went to Heaven

Umeko left us last night.

We found campylobacter as a result of draining the pleural fluid while she was hospitalized.
Luckily the medicine we were giving her was working and was keeping the fluid at bay, but we would need to continue the medications.
In addition to this, her kidneys were reading bad, and her phosphorus levels had risen, so we needed medicine no matter what.

But she won’t eat or drink anything at all besides the goat milk…
I was asked if I would like to hospitalize her again and hook her up to an IV, but I said no. For one, last time I had her hospitalized, the IV stopped flowing into her, and more than anything, I’m afraid of leaving her to potentially pass away all alone.

For this reason I decided to take her to the vet every day for her necessary shots.    

Day 4 of injections
She stopped taking even the goat milk.
Day 5 of injections
She started getting neurological symptoms like tics and uremia symptoms such as seizures.
I added 200 mL more of fluid, but this didn’t stop the dehydration. Her ears and the inside of her mouth turned white from anemia.

Day 6
The doctor did an ultrasound on her. There were a lot of filarial parasites fidgeting around, and she had a large tumor in her lung. She had developed blisters(?) on the inside of her lung from the parasites digging in there.

今は静かに眠っていますが、この先 呼吸困難で苦しむ事は確実です。3日後なのか 明日なのか 今夜なのか…
She’s sleeping soundly now, and it’s already certain that she’ll have breathing problems later on. 3 days from now, or tomorrow, or tonight…

“Doctor, I don’t want her to suffer anymore.”

When I took her in, Ms. Umeko was suffering from total blindness, severe renal failure, breast tumors, ovarian tumors, severe filaria, and a body full of hairballs.
She’s about 14 or 15 years old. I want to believe that in the course of her long doggy life, there were times when she felt happy and loved.

In the 5 months since I brought her from the animal control center on May 23rd, she not once was able to open up her heart to me. She was poked and prodded with needles and injections almost every day and forced to wear diapers, which I’m sure she’d never done before… I wonder if she hates me, if I’m just someone who puts her through pain and discomfort. 😓 I’m sorry. But you won’t have to hurt anymore.

You were a strong girl, stubborn, and with a voice so powerful you surprised everyone. Rest in peace, Umeko.
