I am either second guessing the past here or preparing for the future
with my present dog. I just went through this with our border x who
lived to 16.5 yrs old. She died in early March of this year. I have a
13.5 yr old wire-haired fox terrier who is mentally active and alert
presently. He is experiencing deterioration in vision and hearing and
has a fairly serious liver issue which we have done all that we can do for.
With our border x we were also dealing with some fairly severe arthritis
and joint issues. Keeping her involved and active called for some
pretty creative thinking. My concern is that there were other things I
could have done. I'm not beating myself up here over it. We did the
best we knew how but I would like to know of how others have dealt with
this - prepping for future issues with present and future dogs I suppose.
It's obvious there isn't anything that needs immediate attention. I
would appreciate it if you happen to have some advise to share and a few
spare minutes to post.
