There was nothing we could do, but I probably would have spent everything I had (admittedly not a whole lot, so let's just say I would have increased my debt substantially) to keep him alive. I'm sorry that happened, thankfully you were able to save him. Don't expect anyone to be able to understand the bond you have with your pet. The fact that they were telling you to let him pass just underlines the disconnect between pet owner and an outsider looking in.
