My best friend Jake passed away on 10/08/12 from Lymphoma. He was diagnosed two weeks three weeks prior to his death. I have been racked with guilt because I put him through chemo. I was told 70% of dogs do better with chemo and I wasn't prepared selfishly to let him go. Jake went through two chemo treatments while staying at the hospital. The hospital called me after the second treatment and said I could come pick him up and bring him home until his third treatment. When I arrived and they attempted to bring Jake to me, I noticed he couldn't use his hind legs. He never again would use his hind legs. I tried massaging his legs, did exercises with his legs, bought a pouch to help him walk as I carried him, nothing worked. Finally on Sunday he clenched his mouth shut and refused to eat. I knew it was time. I will never get over the death of my buddy..I still have his brother Zeke and another Diesel Marie and they all mean the world to me, because I view them as my children. My QUESTION is, why would a dog stop walking after chemo treatments? What would cause that?

wish we could move around this site easier! It is very hard to get from one place to another and to delete any thing so that you can see when there is new...
