Comments... Shana was an incredibly wonderful dog. Including being very robust, hardy and healthy.
She developed what in hindsight I now know had to be seasonal allergies (thanks to other dogs that have serious allergies), along with a guess from regular vet (didn't have a specialist then). (Vet's solution - try lamb&rice meal - which she had from NutroMax the rest of her life.) But, some sores on her back manifested (along with belly hot spots) only in Summer and they never got unbearable.
Her death surely involved what had been x-rayed as either an enlarged heart or heart in a fluid sack some 4 mos. prior; Shana hated the vets' (always maniacally tried to escape; severe panting, etc) and after leaving her for overnight to do x-rays, she came back completely unhealthy - could not support herself, bad bloody diarrhea, incontinence, total lethargy. Her difficulty sometimes getting into a car, her decreased tolerance for walks within a year or so, pointed to weak heart, along with this final week's episode.
