View Full Version : Coco not well

27th August 2007, 12:29 PM
Brought Coco to vet this morning acting weird all weekend but worst this morning like he is drunk. Bad news they have kept him in think he might have epelepsy, or possible a bleed on the brain. I have to call back later, hopefully he will be ok . I am sitting here in shock.

27th August 2007, 12:37 PM
oh that is terrible if u need anything give me a call!!! i will be away from the computer for rest of the day so i will give u a call later!

27th August 2007, 01:42 PM
Poor Coco :(. I really hope he is OK :xfngr:.

Tiki had epilepsy so I know it can be very traumatic. Let us know as soon as you hear anything :flwr:

I'm so sorry to hear Coco is unwell. :xfngr: :xfngr: he gets better soon and that they can control this.

27th August 2007, 02:40 PM
Just got a call from vet not looking good. Coco has suffered some sort of fit, it seems he has a mass in his head by the size they say its probly been there awhile, vet says that is most likely why he was dumped in first place. He says i might have some decisions to make as he say the size pushing on brain is not looking good. Not sure if coco is going to come round and if so he said he could be left brain damaged maybe blind.
I feel bad that i noticed nothing till this weekend but he acted normal the only thing was he has always been very quiet but then so is Sally, and sometimes he wouldnt eat but then next time he would. I also got him checked when i got him out of pound and they said he was fine.
I hope i dont have to make any decisions but then Coco comes first. I only hope i make the right one. Am going to vet this evening to see him.

27th August 2007, 04:00 PM
Sending you our love at this very difficult time. I pray that Coco has no pain & a full recovery and that whatever you choose, you can find peace in the decision.

Oh, no. it's not fair.

Don't blame yourself for not noticing any differences, as there may not have been any. What you describe is perfectly normal behaviour for some dogs. Izzy was quiet and picky over food well before he was ever ill. If your vet thought that Coco was fine, how could you expect otherwise ?

27th August 2007, 04:25 PM
So sorry! Poor Coco :( Thinking of you both.

27th August 2007, 04:31 PM
oh I am so sorry to hear that :(

My fingers are crossed for Coco. :hug: to all of you

Oh no...just saw the post.I'm so sorry. Let us know how he is getting on. You have don everything right for this little man.

27th August 2007, 04:40 PM
Oh no, I am so, so sorry. :( You couldn't possibly have been expected to know. Hope he'll be OK but make the best decision for him and for you. :flwr: If it is his time, you will know you gave him love, care and happiness.

He actually wasn't a surrender, he was picked up a stray (he had to stay in 5 days as a stray), so he definitely was not abandoned because anyone knew of this problem.

I'm so sorry to hear about Coco. My prayers and hopes are with you and Coco. I know you'll make the right decision for Coco. It sounds like you've given him a lot of love and care--don't blame yourself for not seeing any signs. Sometimes they're just not there...

Take care--:flwr:

28th August 2007, 04:35 PM
Coco will be in vets for awhile they think he will be ok hopefully meds will work, going to do a biopsy will no more after this. He has come round still not himself though hopefully if the biopsy isnt cancerous and the meds work could be an op , not sure yet he might have a while yet.:xfngr:

28th August 2007, 04:38 PM
it's good to hear they think that it can be managed. I'm so sorry you're going through this :( :hug: to all of you. :xfngr: for coco in the upcoming days. I hope everything is alright and he gets better!!

28th August 2007, 04:50 PM
It so hard to see your baby go through something like that. I hope the meds do their trick and no surgery will be needed. Keeping you and Coco in my prayers

28th August 2007, 04:51 PM
Fingers crossed all works out OK> :xfngr:

28th August 2007, 04:55 PM

It is good to hear that it might be manageable. :xfngr: :xfngr: for good biopsy results.

Barbara Nixon
28th August 2007, 05:23 PM
I do so hope that the results are good, but, if not, steroids can give several months of normal life. My Benji had a large inoperable tumour on his forehead and was quite happy for 8 months, though, eventually, he didn't look his normal handsome self, because of weight gain.

28th August 2007, 08:40 PM
:xfngr: :xfngr: I am hoping to hear good news about Coco, my prayers are with you and your family.

28th August 2007, 11:39 PM

Oh my god, I am so sorry, just seen this thread now. I am thinking of you and sending prayers to you in this very sad time :(

31st August 2007, 02:39 PM
There's not much that can be said at a time like this that will lessen the pain you are in right now. However, you know you are doing the right thing by Coco and that's in truth all that matters. In time, the trauma and sorrow will lessen and eventually you will be able to remember Coco with a smile and not with tears. Please know that I have you, your family and Coco in my thoughts and prayers.

I'm sooo sorry to hear this. He was a lovely dog the few hours that I had him. And you gave him a great few last weeks. Thinking of you.

31st August 2007, 06:39 PM
I am so sorry you have had to make such a choice, especially when he had so little time with you. You certainly gave him a much better life than he had come from before, and gave him great love while in your home. You have taken a hard decision, but it is out of care and love. :flwr:

31st August 2007, 06:51 PM
I am so sorry for you. I know how hard this decision is, and how difficult it has been through the last days. Lots of hugs and thoughts from me.

31st August 2007, 08:52 PM
If not for you, Coco may not have had anyone to wait for at the Bridge, someone who loved him while he was on earth. Thank you for caring and for giving him such a wonderful home for the last weeks of his life. He was lucky to have found you and I am sure you have grown by having him with you.
