View Full Version : Good vibes please, Lady so poorly
23rd September 2009, 08:36 PM
I'm not fishing for sympathy, just need to share my pain!
As you know, Lady has Cushings disease and has laminitis.
But it's all getting too much for her (me?) and I've decided to have her put down. She has been on a medium dose of bute, but is still in lots of pain. Her feet are red-hot and just looks so fed up.
So, the YO is ringing the 'man' to come to do it, she'll let me know when tomorrow. It will defo be within the next few days.
I think i feel better now it's 'organised' i've been a distraught mess for days!
So, yeah, there we go. Miserable.

I am so sorry to hear that but as Emm says you are very brave to let her go and not allow her to suffer. Bless you! Take care!
23rd September 2009, 08:48 PM
Well said Emm couldn't have put it better myself.
So sad but sounds like you're doing the right thing hun. Big hugs xxx

Sorry to hear this :( Sounds like the right decision though
23rd September 2009, 09:19 PM
I am so sorry, x

Hunni, I'm so sorry. I know how devastating it is to lose a pony. You are making such a brave decision for her though <<<hugs>>> xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
23rd September 2009, 09:28 PM
Really sorry to hear this but you are doing right by lady. xxxx
23rd September 2009, 09:31 PM
Oh poor sweetheart!
This is the exact situation my old boy is in, fighting Cushings and Lammi is a horrible thing, and with him it's now just a matter of when the time is right. He is still enjoying life but i know he wont be with me this time next year :(:(
Agree with Em. It is SO damn hard putting them down, but the greatest gift of all is to alleviate suffering. It may not feel that way for a while, but in time you will see it is the final act of kindness we can ever do for them. It's just so hard for us to deal with afterwards sometimes.
Please dont feel alone, you have all of us here

That is very sad-poor Lady! I wish you the courage to make the right decision for your girl-I know you will! )hugs) Nessx

im so very sorry, but i hope you can find some comfort in that you are doing the very best for your pony and putting her first before your feelings, something some owners wouldnt do.
Take care hun, we all understand xx
23rd September 2009, 10:36 PM
Oh no :( i used to love seeing your pics of you and lady when you used to post more regularly!
I'm so sorry to hear lady's so poorly, sounds like your being incredibly brave to do the right thing for her. Thinking of you at this hard time *hugs* xxx

Oh I'm so sorry to hear this :(, but it sounds like you're doing the right thing. MASSIVE hugs!

I'm so sorry *hug*
You are doing the right thing, and I know what you are going through. My first pony had arthritis, laminitis and suspected cushings and I had to let her go. It does get easier I promise.

Ditto everyone else. You are being so brave and doing the right thing by her. Thinking of you both.

I am so sorry, so brave to make this decision and the right one be sure of that. I had to do the same in March this year for my George. sending huge hug and lots of courage. xxxx

Thank you all so much for your words of comfort.
She goes on Monday. In some ways i feel better now it's organised cos i know she wont be in pain for much longer.
As it is she is out with her buddies, making the most of the thick black mud!! She may be ill but she is still a muck monster!!

I am so sorry to hear this about lady, it sounds like you are making a very brave decision and the right one for her.
