Rest In Peace Miz Astorbilt

Today Miz Astorbilt, passed away from fatty liver disease.  She had turned yellow.  Oak Grove Animal Clinic took care of her.  Miz Astorbilt was syringe fed but nothing would stay down.  There was discussion from our Director and her Foster Mom, Ms. Lori Barker, on having a tube put down into her stomach to feed her that way but it was decided it was more humane to end her life in peace with some dignity.  Today Miz Astorbilt was put to sleep.  Our prayers are with you Ms. Lori in your time of sorrow and loss.  We will miss her greatly.  We will meet you on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.
