Todays story is not a happy one. Last week Orlaith got a cold and was not feeling very well. We had her on antibiotics to help her getting over the cold. Nevertheless she became more ill every day. Last Wednesday we went to the vet to get a further check. Unfortunately her heart and her lungs did not sound well and she was having a little trouble breathing.
Because we did not want to extend the suffering. The vet also thought that further treatment was not in the interest of Orlaith. The vet said that she could help her a little but that would have helped Orlaith only for a couple of days.
We then had to decide to let her go. It was a hard decission but one that had to be taken to give Orlaith the last help we could give her.
We had Orlaith cremated and today she returned home to her friends.
