At the beginning of December 2016, we found that Macho had breathing problems during his exertion, which manifested itself in wheezing and coughing. The vet then prescribed antibiotics. When the upcoming heart examination at beginning of January was with the best results, we were let perform a bronchoscopy. Also these showed no abnormalities and Macho was treated again with a special antibiotics. As then no clearly recognizable improvement took place, we decided in early February for a computed tomography. The shock was indescribable when we were told that Macho was suffering from cancer and that his life expectancy would be only a few weeks, because the left lung, kidney and spleen were affected.
At the end of February he suddenly showed marked pain symptoms. In the bloom of his live we had to let go our "lovely chaos-boy", our "eye-dog". He leaves a big gap and we miss him very much.
