View Full Version : Anyone with a big dog??

05-22-2008, 02:20 PM
Just wondering if anyone would be interested in flea and tick med (frontline plus) or heartworm med(value heart) . We just had to put our St. Bernard down due to an unoperable tumor in her esophagus. I have some meds left over and would be willing to give them to somebody who needs them. I just bought these last month and hate to see them go to waste.

So sorry to hear about your dog. That is very sad.

I am sending you a PM

I'm so sorry to hear about your wonderful dog. Even though I still have two dogs, I really miss the Chessie we had to put down a few years ago.

Hugs to you and your family.

My best wishes to youi, I keep telling my koids, 15 and 16 yers old, that my 13 year old Golden Retriver is my BEST child, and he is!! My thoughts go out to you.....

:hug: No dog here, just wanted to say how very generous of you. I'm so sorry for your loss.

I have a big monster dog too, 140lb Wolfhound. When you lose one that big, the house seems empty.

Very kind of you to offer up your meds!!! I'm a veterinarian, so get them at cost...so I won't ask for them...hopefully someone who needs them and has to pay full price normally can use them!!!

So Sorry for your loss. :grouphug: I have 2 labs and I can imagine your pain. :hug:

I am sorry for your loss. My husband had a st. bernard as a child and still misses his dog. He was one of his fondest childhood memories.

:grouphug: very sorry about the loss of your furbaby

So sorry for your loss... :hug:
We big-dog owners know how it is... the bigger the dog, the bigger the love. :love:

I'm so sorry for your loss. :hug:

We have had many furbabies over the years and the end of their lives is so very difficult.

You are very kind to offer your medications.

So sorry for your loss. we have three labs and I don't know what I would do without my other "kids". Time to go potty right now, actually. Hugs and my deepest sympathies to you and your family.

Califgirl, I just put my Chessie down in March and it was the hardest thing I had to do. I loved him. He was the best dog ever! Just had to say hi to a fellow Chessie owner. What happened to your dog? Mine got Diabetes and treatment was expensive and he would've needed it for the rest of his life.
OP, sorry to hear about your St Bernard. It's hard to lose a pet no matter what the cause.

I just wanted to let you know how sorry I am about your baby. I lost my big girl Stella, my favorite dog ever about 2 months ago, it's very hard.:sad1:

I too am sorry to hear of the loss of your dog.

It is a hard thing to put down a friend, but still an act of love.

05-22-2008, 09:23 PM
I'm also so sad to hear of the loss of your big girl. I hope time soothes your pain and happy memories take over quickly. :hug:

So sorry for your loss, and how thoughtful that you're thinking of others at this time.

We put down our sweet, sweet 11 yr lab last summer also due to a tumor of the esophagus. I think of her each day still.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss! We had to put our Mastiff/Shepherd mix down in September - just 4 weeks after we brought our puppy home. It was heartbreaking, even with having the new puppy to sort of cheer us up.

Meds for the new puppy (now 10 months old) are getting expensive. If you have anything left over, I would love to take you up on the offer. Thanks so much for offering to help out people!

Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and prayers. We definitely need them. This was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. We had no other choice. The tumor was in a spot that was inoperable and she wouldn't eat. I can't pm anyone back because I'm on my way to a field trip but I just gave the meds to the first 2 people to respond. Caligirl I'm going to mail you out the flea and tick and Pammypooh, I'm going to mail you the heart worm meds. Thanks again to everyone for the support!

I just wanted to say that I'm so sorry for your loss. St Bernards are wonderful dogs.

05-23-2008, 08:27 AM
So sorry for your loss, my lab is 13 and I know the whole family will fall apart when it's her time! But what a great thing you did in giving out the extra medicine...

05-23-2008, 12:31 PM
Also sorry about the loss of your furry baby. We recently lost ours too. It sure is a hard thing to get over.

A suggestion for the medications you want to share....maybe a local animal shelter could use them.

I am so sorry for your loss! I have 2 Rhodesian Ridgebacks that are my babies. My oldest a boy is 10 and I know his time will be coming and I am terrified how I will handle it. My little girl is almost 2.

that is a very sweet gesture! When we lost m cat a few yrs ago to cancer we gave everything to the animal hospital.

05-23-2008, 03:08 PM
so sorry for your loss.:hug:

05-23-2008, 03:26 PM
Boy do I feel for you. We had to put down our Lab of 16 years in April. I have never and I mean never missed any pet this much. I feel sorry for our "young one". He has big paws to fill..................

05-23-2008, 04:33 PM
I am sorry for your loss! I have a St.Bernard that is wild! I would hate to see when the day comes to have her put down.
