Many of you will remember the times when I used to bring my Pugs Oscar and Louis to the practice. Oscar died a couple of years ago at the ripe old age of 15. It’s with great sadness that I report that we had to have Louis put to sleep in early January. He was 9 years old. Louis had not been well over Christmas and took a turn for the worst when we all went back to work and school. What the vet thought to be a gastric upset turned out to be a big abdominal tumour. A sad end but a way to go. He and I watched TV on our last night together and he was in good spirits. Only by the following lunchtime was his life quality not great which is when I called time. I hope my end is that quick. God Bless you Louis.
