To get away from the waiting for my visa chat ive been putting off a decision.
Weve got 2 dogs and the youngest "Sui" a female border collie that is 9 years old has been poorly for about 2 months. First the vets could not find out what was wrong but after numerous blood tests, xrays, scans ect they diagnosed lung worm. She has finished the treatment for this but has an enlarged heart and gets into trouble breathing. We have got her on steroids to try to help this out but in all honesty its just not working. She has got thin as a rake and has no energy to enjoy walks and is not herself. I dont think she is in serious pain but shes definetly not herself.
We have spent the best part of £1000 in the last couple of months and i have no worrys about this and in my eyes shes not bad enough to be put down. The wife though thinks she is at a stage that her quality of life is suffering and now is the right time. She thinks its better to call it a day before she gets any worse.
I bet loads of you have had to go through this but these were our first dogs so when is it the right time. Hold on as long as possible or call it a day earlier ?
