On 29 August 2021, we rescued a stray dog with severe, but treatable TVT - a cancer of the vagina in her case. Beth seemed to be responding well to the treatment, and was very affectionate towards Christine who rescued her. As September progressed, she suddenly stopped eating - never a positive sign in a dog.
We took a blood sample, which revealed advanced kidney failure. We immediately stopped her TVT treatment and put her on an IV and renal failure medication to help clear her kidneys, but over the subsequent days, even with round-the-clock nursing care provided at Animal Wellness, she passed away shortly after a visit from Christine, on Monday 28 September 2021.
We tried everything we could to help Beth, and had a wonderfully generous response from our supporters who quickly raised the funds for the TVT treatment that benefited Brown and Blake as well. It is such a shame that we couldn't get her through her complicated and severe medical problems, but she knew love at the end. She was such a gentle soul. She just loved being loved.
