Dakota Has Passed On
Koda (as he was affectionately known), went into convulsions at about 2:30 this afternoon. I took him to the 24-hour emergency vet, after trying a few first aid things at home. They pumped him full of valium, which reduced the convulsions to mild tremors.
The vet was straight up with the prognosis - based on what the expensive tests that I can't afford might tell us, she was not optimistic that he could go home and be OK. So, I made the decision to let him go.
He passed peacefully. The med they use anesthetised him immediately, and continued on to an overdose. He slipped away in less than a minute.
Pax vobiscum, Koda.
