Agatha a Cairn Terrier pure breed was with me for 14 years. Her 13th year was difficult for her. While she never had any pain she had persistent swelling of her abdomen which had to be tapped to remove the fluid. It used to get in her way of getting around. One day I stepped into the shower and when I came out she was on the floor spread eagle with her tongue hanging out. I rushed her to the vet but he couldn’t think of what to do for her.Reluctantly I let him put her to sleep. It has been almost 10 years since that dreadful day and I have never gotten over it.
