She was put down a week ago today and I collected serum to be sent to the lab for Johne's Disease testing (the ELISA test). They also sent a fecal culture. The poor thing was in terrible condition and she was suffering a great deal. It was the right thing to do. She got to go out on the pasture and be with her friends for the last time. It was a beautiful thing. The result of the ELISA test for Johne's was negative. Thank God for that! They are still running the fecal culture and the result should take another 6-7 weeks. I feel in my gut that it was some type of cancer (gastrointestinal or liver/bile duct), although I know how rare it is. The scientist in me is a little disappointed not to know for sure what caused all of this, but as long as she is no longer suffering and whatever it was is not contagious . . . I'm ok not knowing.
