Kay was put to sleep in May 2010. She was diagnosed with severe calcification on her left front knee due to a fracture she had sustained that went untreated at a previous owner (the man she was rescued from) Due to her transfering weight, her right knee had also began to cause her problems. So she was transfering weight to her hind legs and spraining her hocks. Bute was not effective for her for very long and I could tell she was in alot of pain. I miss her more then words could ever possibly describe, but I know that I did the right thing for her to end her suffering.
