I know it's small beer compared to what others here are going through, but it still hurt.
Dyan had been showing signs of an upset tum for a few days (sporadic, loose output) so we took him to the vet yesterday afternoon. Vet examined him and could feel a tumour in his bowel "about the size of a marble". Said the only way to find out exactly what it was, i.e. benign or otherwise, was to operate so he was kept in overnight and had the op this morning. Vet phoned at 9.10am to say it was cancer and that it had spread so much there was really no option but to euthanise and would I consent to that.
Sadly, I didn't have much choice.
