Wanted you to know that after and extended painful illness that could not be controlled, she asked us to let her go on Wednesday. We are grateful to have had Ayita for 5-1/2 years. She was brave and oh so sweet her whole short life. We learned a lot from her.
After much testing and medicating, it was determined that she had a form of immune-mediated polyarthritis with enough clinical findings to put her into the class of systemic lupus erythematous (SLE). I understand from Kim that this is very very rare in AI dogs.
