Heartbroken…My older dog is ready to leave & the younger seems to be failing too.

Thursday, January 13th, 2011

I have two dogs (one is 13 the other 11).  The older dog has had hip issues and poor health for a while.  We have been trying to let her go naturally in hopes that it will be easier on the younger dog.  However, in the past couple of weeks the younger dog has gone from 70 lbs down to about 50.  When I noticed the rapid weight loss I started spoon feeding her soft food and she now eats the soft mixed with crunchy on her own but doesn’t appear to be gaining any weight back.  I noticed this after she was wormed.  She has always been and extremely healthy and happy dog so this change is painful to watch.  Any suggestions on how to get her to gain weight back?  I am heartbroken to think that I might have to have her euthanized.  :(

I have tried calling a few vets in the area but they all suggest I bring her in but it is far too tramatic for her.  She panics when her sister isnt within view.

Any suggestions is appreciated.

What is the process for home euthansia?

Saturday, August 21st, 2010

I am wondering how the process works to have someone come to my house to put my dog to sleep?

I am trying to prepare for the not to distant future and I am wondering how much it will cost to have this done. I just hate to take her to have her put down because she really gets nervous taking her to the vet. She has spent allot of time there the last few years, she is fifteen years old.

I don’t think it will be much longer until I need to do this so I am trying to come up with a plan proactively.

Thank you
