Thank you Jean, I'm so sorry to hear about your beautiful Kara :( I know we are going to outlive our furkids but it still doesn't prepare you for when it is actually going to happen. Thinking of you xxx

Oh Danielle, i am so so SO sorry to be reading this...... my heart is broken for you. It is truly a travesty when a professional harms an animal ... What was done to Buzz is horrific.... and i hope you will report this to prevent such damage being done to others in the future.

Please know that although you can no longer "fix" Buzz, even if you could afford the chemo, but rather you can only make him as comfortable as possible..... i truly believe that they know when we care with all our hearts and do the very best we can by them...i am sure Buzz understands and feels your true and deep love for him. And sometimes... the chemo... although it does help many, some dogs just do not respond well at all to it.... and it is hard on them as they do not understand what is happening with the treatment...........

May you experience many gentle, loving and treasured moments with Buzz for as long as he is still here with you .................

Holding you dear in our hearts and surrounding you with much love,
Olesia and the entire Epi4Dogs Staff
Thank you SO much Olesia. I could not have gotten through these last few months, especially, without the help and support from Madelon, Jill and yourself....it has meant the world. I will definitely be reporting them and making a complaint to the vet clinic, but I'm going to do that after as I don't want to waste any of my time on that while Buzz is still here.

Deep down I know that and I think we're doing the right thing, considering everything Buzz has gone through, I just feel helpless.

I am so so sorry to read this. You did everything you could and all you can do is love, love, love your pup! It is very difficult to say goodbye to our fur babies. We lost Taiko in April at age 12 1/2 and even that seemed too short of a time. Taiko had EPI but it was controlled and she died of other issues. I am so sorry you did not have longer with your pup. I know your heart is broken but let all the good times and memories fill those broken spots.
Thank you so much for your kind words :( it just seems so unfair after all our furkids have gone through. I'm sorry to hear about your beautiful Taiko, that's the hardest thing with our beloved furkids, no time will ever be enough :(

I just want to say thank you so much for all your kind words, I've been fighting back tears reading them. Whilst this is an incredibly hard time I'm trying my best to try and not get upset and just enjoy the time with both my boys. We have been going on walks (not too long though as Buzz gets tired easily), laying in the sun, spending time at the beach and we even organised a special family photoshoot.
Here's some photos of our beautiful boy enjoying life. Hope you enjoy xxx

He's gone 😭 I can't believe my beautiful boy is gone. Tonight we had the vet come out to the house so we could say goodbye to Buzz in a comfortable environment. I miss him so much and so does Woody 💔 thank you so much for everything....we couldn't have gotten this far without you.

I am so sorry, Danielle. You gave him the greatest gift, being there
with him through his transition. It is such a profound privilege to be
there.

As you walk the path of grief toward healing, he is with you.

Know that we are walking with you.

Oh Danielle - you know how much I adore you and Buzz and Woody. My heart is broken for you but as I told you, helping him cross the Bridge was the most loving, unselfish thing you could do for him. I know without a doubt that Buzz knew how much you loved him and how hard you fought for him. Woody is going to need you know as he will be grieving as well - they were the best of buds and with each other 24/7 for so long. Please know that your EPI family is here for you always!
