I feel like i would be killing him. But it’s been quite some time since we’ve been able to take him back because between his age, joints, & the big tumor, he can’t get in the vehicle anymore. It’s the best thing you can do for him. The pain will fade over time. Then he was diagnosed with cancer. She sleeps a lot. I don’t think “functioning” is really living, and I am at constant debate with the idea of letting go. He was the best dog. If you haven’t had him checked out by a vet yet you should and find out if he has a problem that can be treated medically. He could do all that, but he could barely get up on his own. It was so sad, and his sister died two days later lying on his grave. He had the vet come and put him down at his home. William hed developed diabetes the last three years of his life and was on insulin. She’s having a hard time walking and her back legs are weakening horribly. My thoughts are with you on this difficult day. I’m sorry you’re going through this. She was incontinent for the last year of her life due to the arthritis, but until recently still enjoyed walks. I just called the vet and they said the vet will call me back later in the day. It is super rare for her to do that. My struggle is that when she’s on….. she’s really on. About a year earlier I wrote a post about finally acknowledging that he wouldn’t be around much longer because he stopped running upstairs to the kitchen when he heard me making a meal (or doing anything with food). As tough as it is to do I thought about my parents, who both passed away in the last year. She is going deaf and blind, wobbly in the back in the mornings, but I say, as long as she is hungry, I will feed her and sustain her. I just put my cat down in April and I HATE doing this. She “complains” any time she has to reposition though. He seems to have lost his eye sight and some hearing. She lost her health so quickly. Its so incredibly difficult and my heart is broken, but I know its the right thing. No infections. I’m sorry he’s having so much trouble. So that’s a plus but the size of the one is concerning to me. Or both? You’ll get different advice from different vets, but ultimately you have to do what you think is best for your dog. My situation is almost identical to yours with my 11 year old girl. The vet said she was very sore in her lower back-she flinched when the vet touched it. You should check with your vet. I have a 15 yesr old estrela he used to way 110 but is now 87lbs he has had a partialy paralized laranyx which has not been bad for years jusy noisy breathing.about a year ago noticed signs of dimentia that hsve gotten worse he paces alot gets stuck in corners circles.and barking .his hips were not great has been on meds so could walk well but the pacing has left him unable to use his back legs they wore out.he has arthritis in his hips and back and two fused disk and dyspasia in one hip .his eyesight and hearing are good .i have a harness to help him walk but he is very slow because of arthritis even being on meds.my girlfriend and i basicaly help him pace so he can rest .the vet gave us meds to hekp him sleep he sleeps about a half hour to an hour and then has to get up and pace he has lost control of his bladder so we use pads and keep them changed and he gets a bath daily.i have to hand feed him to keep his weight where it is.he drinks wster fine but have noticed he cant chew or lick himself.he can and will eat treats but because of digestive issues cannot hsve alot of treats.somtimes a half hour before he poops he goes crazy like he is in pain and then goes, the poop is not soft or hard seems fine.the sleep meds only work for about 3 hours then he needs to get up and pace and then he can sleep again .my girlfreind has insomnia so we do shifts to help him thruogh the night and it works.during the dsy he is up and down with us being his pacers.i have had him since he was 8 weeks and literaly we have never been apart.if we dont help him pace he will bark unyil we do so we do ,but if we drive somwhere he will at some point bark and not stop until we stop if its a half hour he barks for a half hour even at one point biting a hole in his lip and still not stopping and you cant console him.since we help him do everything all day i cant tell if he is happy or not he does seem to still have pain even with the meds. She can’t enjoy walks but i put her on the green grass to smell it. She would fetch tennis balls and jump when shed see me and bark all night. I’m not a vet so I can’t make a recommendation. Thank you. He does eat, but not much at all. I think many dog owners wonder if there was more they could do. It was a horrible decision. My maltipoo, Leila, will be 16 in 5 days..Sweet Sixteen. Maybe it would help if he read some of the other stories that other people posted here. I took to the vet and he ran all types of tests. Vet said she could give meds but it would prolong her conditions. It is so difficult to go through. The last few days I have begun to question my selfishness. but he still eats his food. She started seeking out corners on the house to sleep away from us and the other dogs. He did give him an antibiotic and the blood in the urine cleared up. But now we are looking at 10 days with no food.. I miss her spirit already. It is so incredibly hard to decide when. To find out What? Having spent 19 out of her 21 years with her… it will be like loosing a best friend that knew my heart, loved me in spite of myself and never uttered a growl at anyone in her life. Thank for for giving him a home. I know his time is coming soon. It’s been over 11 years. However, she does cry and whine when no one is home, like we abandoned her. She use to get up all the time when the kids are having snacks, lunch, and afternoon snacks to eat the crumbs on the floor, but now it’s only a few times. As I was about to strike the attacker with an extremely soft combination wood and steel shovel the neighbor screamed and gained control of her dog. I’m so sorry. He wants me to find a treat for him. Can not go to the bathroom ,i have to hold him if he want to poop his legs can not hold him anymore when he want to do party (2) . It is the most difficult decision to have to let them go but it’s true They do let you know when it’s time to say goodbye. My personal opinion is that it is better to do it a little early than a little late so you can be sure your dog isn’t suffering, but everyone has to decide for themselves. Poncho is now totally blind & deaf, no more stairs, playing every day seems harder, I know its time I just never had to do this. My dog hates his crate during the day. She was diagnosed with kidney failure stage 2 about 6 mos ago. Two days ago we helped Duke (15) cross over. I have a 14 year old Cocker Spaniel, Rascal. This past year though she was diagnosed with cognitive dysfunction. If I had to do it over again I wouldn’t have taken him to the emergency vet for the second time, but at the time I wanted to give him one more chance to recover. I’m not a vet and can’t tell you what to do. We took short walks, he swam in the Colombia River. I have a beautiful 8 year old Staffordshire Bull terrier, adored by the family. Have you spoken with your vet? I know a lot of people would have already made the decision based on incontinence alone…. Few days earlier we had to take him to the emergency clinic as he could not walk on his back legs (they seemed paralyzed) he had difficulty breathing. 7. That’s the Buddy I want to remember! She turns 14 soon but has definitely declined in health. I’m sorry but I’m not a vet and can’t give advice about euthanizing your dog. Help!!! He’s always been prone to hot spots, but no matter what treatment we use, it’s not working. She has got me through so much including the loss of my precious Mom. I m searching around how do I know it’s time ! This is the hardest thing I have ever endured. She can get up and down stairs slowly and still wants to go for short walks to do her business outside and sniff around. My heart is breaking. She needs to be seen by a vet to determine what’s wrong and if she’s in pain. As I did, Dave jumped out of his truck and he said to me… Oh my God Lucy son is here. My uneducated guess is she may have some anxiety if you move her to FL but she will eventually adapt. I let her out to pee and it started to rain. It is so very, very hard, and you’ve hit on a couple of really key things: advanced age and when a dog loses all interest in food, being with their pack, and getting better. Today my beloved Tiger went to Doggie Heaven. This morning he seemed anxious and was trying to walk , but now he seems content to stay in his bed . From my experience, if an old, sick dog is refusing food and water, it’s trying to tell you it’s ready for you to let it go. When I read this I think what is this person thinking- the old guy was ready to go…. Hopefully your vet will help. My Summer is 15 years old. You should probably ask for help if you can. She makes a list of her dog’s favorite things to do, and when it can no longer do anything on the list, she knows it’s time. I know its time… But I can’t seem to let go and do it. I just need to know what anyone else would do? The lost control of her bowels and her bladder. If your dog is in pain you should ask yourself what the benefit would be to him to keep him alive. People told us something would tell us when it was time to put him down, and that’s exactly what happened. Does he ever look happy during the day? Any opinion would be appreciated. I have not slept or ate in days, and I know that these horrific memories will stick with me. So do I let these issues influence my decision to let him go sooner than I might normally do if I were not having surgery. It broke my heart having to let go of my companion; three weeks have gone by and I still cry daily. I’m not sure. It’s been two weeks but I have no regrets or second thoughts. This lump is cancer. I think he needed me to make the final decision. He stopped going out with my husband to the woods about a year ago…trouble with hind quarters in and out of truck – used ramp still no good. This past one, however, he can not lift his head, walk, and he sleeps most of the day, occasionally whimpering. He roams around like he is confused and walks into walls. She looks at me with those loving eyes, she can still get around sort of and eats. I don’t know where you live, but in Seattle, lots of people have dozens of stairs up to their homes. He’s blind & deaf & can’t walk very far on his own. She stayed in her bed almost all day, looking very unhappy. He doesnt hurt and he is still happily eating so we are going to wait a little while longer. She was in pain at home and beginning to have cognitive troubles. My husband and I love this little guy so much, but I feel like he is going into a gradual decline. She still eats well and drinks a lot. I can’t put my dog to sleep putting down an animal that you love is one of the most un-selfish compassionate things you will most likely ever do in your life. Last night she laid on the couch with us as her routine but when she got up she almost fell. He didn’t want me out of his sight. While it’s healthy for a dog to look to his owner for commands and cues, it could be unhealthy when a dog cannot stop following or looking at his human. His breathing is labored. Thanks for letting me tell our story, Boonie’s and mine. One day she seemed normal then the next she started throwing up. I told the breeder as i keep in constant contact with him and he is amazed at how well she is doing. My whole family is heartbroken. My thought at the time was that she tried to hang on for me but couldn’t any longer. He is pretty much blind and his kidney levels are elevated. There is no way to time it perfectly unfortunately. I would have kept her in her bed-bringing food to her, bringing water to her, and loving her. I laid on my kitchen floor with him the past couple of nights because I hate that he is all alone in the kitchen (his infirmary). He has truly been the perfect dog. You can visually see that the muscles in his back legs have deteriorated as his front half of his body is a lot thicker/muscular. Having to put your feelings aside and think only of your pet and their situation will be tough but will help. She is now completely deaf , has little interest in family. I’ve taken him to the vet who said they are very common for pure breed dogs. Did your vet make a recommendation? I noticed when I grabbed him this morning he was on some kind of pain!!.. When he saw her come up to his bed he wagged his tail for the first time in days. Euthanasia is not murder, it is not senseless and a theft of life, it is easing the inevitable – when done right. It will get better as time passes. They have him on an antibiotic, nausea meds, and an IV for fluids. I just lost my 8 year old dog, Molly. He was doing great except those back legs. It sounds like her quality of life is still pretty good except for the falling/heavy breathing. He has had chronic pancreatitis, C. Difficile brought on by antibiotics and EPI. She is an abnormally large dog for a female, most of her life weighing in at 225lbs, but all muscle – not fat. She has outlived her litter mates by over two years now. She has been going to the bathroom in the house even after being outside before bedtime. I wanted to write something more in detail about Buddy’s struggles but that would just lead me back to remembering his “bad” days, I’m focusing on the good days and all the enjoyment and love he provided my family and me. He also urinates while he’s walking or laying. He goes for very short walks, sometimes he struggles while trying to poop. We had the mobile vet coming to check her on Friday at 3pm and she never got up again. Her muzzle is nice and grey, and her pupils are foggy. Is there some way I can get him down without carrying him? Lilly is lucky to have had an owner like you. She pees all over the house now and it seems like she might not be completely mentally there as sometimes she’ll ask to go outside and then looks confused and wants to come back in immediately.
