It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we share with you that Waldo crossed the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. He was such sweet soul and will surely be missed.
Waldo came to RMGDRI in January as a 10.5 years young Great Dane already diagnosed with allergies and symmetric lupoid onychodystrophy. In short, as a senior dane, he had good days and not-so-good days. Waldo’s not-so good days were minimal and often spent snoozing away on the couch. Until yesterday, his foster mom expressed concern that something was off with Waldo. Once he arrived to the ER, veterinary staff rushed him to critical care where they found that he had collected an abundance of fluid in his abdomen. Further diagnostics revealed that he had pneumonia, a large mass on his spleen, and nodules presenting in the mesentery. After discussing all possible options and outcomes, RMGDRI made the difficult decision to help Waldo cross the rainbow bridge in the loving arms of his foster family.
Rest easy big guy, you will be missed by many . . .
