    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    I know all to well how that feels, friend... I wish any of us could help. I was in the same situation five years ago. The only thing to do is see if a vet is available, if you can't afford it apply for Care Credit, or go to local shelters to see if you can get help. Do you know the cause of the difficulty?

    If he's having a hard time breathing, make sure his airway stays clear.

    Don't give him medications for pain as most are either toxic or don't work.

    If you can't get help, stay with him, keep him warm, try to get him to drink, and give him your love. Sometimes that's all we can do. If he passes, he will know he was cared about till the end. (sending hugs)
