Ah, it was around 6-7 months old.
Not sure what caused the problem, but my dad said the vet said it was a virus or something. No clue how it was contracted or anything.

They said they could of kept the dog comfy for a few days till it passes away ($500 quote btw) but i guess it was best to put it down.

Hope the little lad had a great life, good times mucking around with it.

Really bummed out atm.
Loved my dog to bits.

RIP

Parvo.... no doubt about it, you dont "have" to have them put down its just a very expensive treatment.....

and dont get another dog for at least a year. the infection lives in the environment for up to that long.

Yea, googling of the symptoms tended to point towards parvo. Whats the ballpark figure for treatment by the way? (just curious)

Cheers for the tip as well, a site said something about 'bleach' cleaning the area to kill/reduce the bacteria. Might tell my dad to whip out the high pressure cleaner tommorow as we occassionally get some stray dogs in our yard taunting my dog (haven't had any for ages though)

In my experience $700-$1500.... often people dont do it because it mainly (not only) effects puppies which they have not had long.

just be warned i tried the bleach / scrubbed everything 9 months later got a dog that had even had it's parvo shots, and it still got it... coughed up the vet bill for both and am happy to say both are still alive happy and healthy.

I have lost a few really special pets over the years and y heart goes out to all of you.

Glad to hear your dogs are alright, if they recover from it are they immune ?

pretty much immune.....but its not completely unheard of for them to get it again.... more like a 1 in 100 chance and its rarely as severe.

I have read may of the posts in this thread over time and sometimes shed a tear for others who have lost their pets

Today its my turn to grieve. My mate Roxie had her last walk down to the coffee shop to sit with me as I read the morning paper and chatted to the regulars. Ive been with her for nearly 15 years and never has there been a more loyal companion. She was a wonderful dog.

We had to put her to sleep this evening as the arthritis in her spine finally paralysed her back legs and she could hardly walk or stand

Tomorrow is going to be a very sad day.

Hey, I'm sorry to hear about Roxie, she looks like a beautiful dog.

It's always so sad to hear about pets that have passed away, but I suppose you can only think of the good times you had together

had to put my best mateof 11 years to sleep yesterday, he had a brain tumor which had caused him to go blind and he was having fits and just didnt know what was going on anymore. woke up yesterday morning to him howling at nothing and it sounded like he was in pain so it was for the best.

i am going to miss the way he hung off my foot everytime i walked through the gate. R.I.P Bob the Dog

We've had to put many animals down in the past. It hurts, but as we all know, its in the best interest for the animal.

Toohey - Palomino horse, ross river fever. Barely made it to friends property (200 mtrs) where he was put down and burried. (Shh, its illegal to bury them in suburbia)

Panda - Blue cattle dog. Winter was getting to her for a few years, and had lumps on her in several places. Was about 12yo. Would still run and chase the ball etc all day..

Choc - Bay horse... Old age.

Sweety - paint horse.. old old old age.. 27. lol

Boots - Dog.. When I was about 10yo. Poisoned... (fuckin c.u.n.t.s...)

Some blue cattle dog mum picked up from the pound.. (saved its arse, at least for a while anyway) She breeds red cattle and this dog kept attacking the pups and bitch.. Had a fight and she was trying to seperate them with a broom stick, neighbour called RSPCA but before they came, she took dog out to mates place and shot it.. Then RSPCA asked to see the dog.. LMAO (long story but funny) Neighbour is a prick.


Among a long list of other animals, they're all remembered and were loved. Ya just gotta know when to let go and not make them suffer anymore.

Well this weekend our dog Clyde was put to sleep forever. Hugely sad day for us. He was a true champion dog. Basically he was old 18yrs. My kids have only ever known him being there. he helped raise them and was their guardian.

condolences mate
18 years is an awesome wicket for a dog and your kids are better for having him around and in the long run, for having lost an animal they loved.
all the best

Lost our little Cockatiel just before Christmas due to infection from a broken wing. Just 12 months old. Nothing the vet could do either. Just died on my partners shoulder
