I'm the Bee's- Knees!

Purred: Tue Jul 1, '14 6:40pm PST 
A couple of months ago, I noticed that Beasley was waking in circles, seemed weaker in her hind legs,, and was getting stuck in corners. I took her to the vet, and after ruling out an inner ear issue, he thought maybe she was having trouble with her arthritis and gave her a prescription for Metacam. After 10 days, she was walking much better, but she was still walking in circles and getting stuck in corners, so he recommended that I take her to see a neurologist. Beasley had a full neurological exam last week, and it was determined that she has brain disease, most likely a brain tumor.

The following is from Beasley's Discharge Instructions:

Beasley is showing signs of brain disease affecting her balance system. She does not appear terribly dizzy but has some subtle signs of this system dysfunction. We discussed the common causes of these findings, with a tumor as the most likely cause of Beasly's signs. Please monitor for signs mentation changes, decreased appetite or non stop circling. As discussed consider euthanasia when her quality of life appears worse. She also displays signs of spinal disease which from the records appear chronic. It was really nice to meet you and Beasley. We wish you both the best!

I chose not to get a brain scan and go to extreme lengths to treat the tumor. I decided that I was just going to delight in every single moment with Beasley and do whatever I could to ensure that she continues to enjoy a happy, pain-free life.

Last week Beasley's health began to decline. She is still eating, but she is having difficulty getting around, holding herself up to relieve herself, doesn't appear to see very well, and has been trembling.

I'm taking Beasley to the veterinarian today to help her on her way to the Rainbow Bridge. It is time to let her go.

Amen to that! We didn't know Beasley because not only are we fairly new around here, we're on the feline side of things. But that kind of news transcends species and we all can relate.

Big hugs, and we will welcome Beasley to the Rainbow Bridge with honours. big hug big hug -- Angels Smokey & Mallow, Jezebel & Pierre
