During fall 2012 Kirgei got Kennel cough and as a complication a severe Pneumonia. He was heavily medicated and seemed to recover. After a few months he went ill again - with varying diffuse symptoms and fever. He was throughly checked up, lungs exrayed, inner organs ultrasound checked, all sorts of blood and urin tests done, etc, still no cause could be identified: all seemed like a knocked out immunsystem. After several months no medication could help any more and in the end of June the vet was putting him to sleep in the back of my car.
Autopsy showed an abscess with necrosis at the inside of the ribcage - on a spot where Kirgei in an early stage gnaw himself from the outside.
It feels remarkable and unjust that this abscess, in spite of all exstensive examinations done, could not be identified earlier and simply removed, and I miss him so terribly.
