I was about to ask for advice on this subject. My Rotty, aged only 6, has
hip dysplacia. About a year ago I bought a 'bio-flow' collar, reduced his
exercise and gave him daily doses of fish oils, painkillers and glucosamine.
It really helped, he was like a new dog!
Now he is 7 months older and facing another winter. He lives in the house
and is loved and pampered but he still seems to be suffering.
He is upset and grumpy with everyone. The vet says he might be able to give
him more painkillers. I'm upset to say the least. I'm not sure how to decide
when he should be put to sleep. His quality of life is not very good, his
physical problems have taken that away.
I don't want to be selfish..............when should I make the final
decision? How should I make it? How do I live with it?
Regards,
Denise

An old regular used to say: Select three things your dog has
always loved to do (that could be eating, walks, etc.). Once he
shows no interest or is incapable of doing two of them, it's
time to start considering that maybe he's already made the
decision for you.

Balance that off with other quality of life issues that are
specific to your relationship with your Rottie.

There's nothing more difficult than making the decision you've
been confronted with. Good luck, it's one many of us have
faced. Your best support is a veterinarian whom you trust.

How do I live with it?


You just do. Trite, but true.

So is your dog receiving comfort from the Metacam or the magetic gizmo?

I had our 11 year old dog on METACAM. Had to get 2 of them a month. Took
her off it but not soon enough. Everytime she goes to the bathroom it's
like diarrear. I know it's because of that medicine. Infact I just threw
away a full unopen bottle & one that was partially used. Also a friend
of mine gave it to her dog & 10 days later her dog died. It may help
your dog but at the end it's going to kill your dog too. I believe it
affects the liver

Keep track of the good days and bad days. When there are more bad days than
good days then it may be time to consider putting him to rest. You really
just know inside when it's time.
