Our little girl passed away on Thursday 5/28. It was not expected and she was 1 week away from celebrating a 12th birthday. She has always been in good health, recently some elevated liver & thyroid numbers then last checkup 2 weeks ago all those numbers were good. She was having some accidents in house, which was odd, I came home on Wednesday at 3pm and she was very pale looking, with pale gums and rapid breathing. I knew something was not right. Our vet was closed so we had to take her to ER vet. They informed us Ginger had a mass on her kidney and almost pressing on her spine as well, it was large. Surgery was very risky and not knowing if it was cancer and if it was, did it spread???? Vet basically said with her age, surgery was a risk, plus her blood was not clotting. She was bleeding internally due to the tumor rupturing as well. Worst news in the world for me and my husband to hear this. Our only child. We decided to have her put to sleep, it was the best thing to do but the hardest. She was a wonderful boxer girl, who we spoiled rotten during her almost 12 years. The house is so empty right now, it is so difficult to not see her around. We shared everything with her. Rest in peace sweet girl. Mom & Dad loved you so much and always will.
