Hi everyone. I have just joined today. I have a beautiful black Labrador who will be 14 in October. I love him so much and he is such an important member of our family. He has been struggling for a while with weak back legs. He has been on Metacam for past 3 years and recently also Tramadol. In recent weeks he needs help to get up and cannot get up without help. In the last 2 weeks he has been having accidents in the house, mainly bowel movements. He still eats and is still waggy. He doesn't seem in pain. On Friday we had to take him for his medication check. He was out of breath and the vet examined him and said he has circulatory problems (pale gums) and said she recommended we put him to sleep! We were in shock. We said we needed time to think about it. I am devastated and want to do what is right for him, but I don't know what that is. Am I being selfish or deluded thinking he has more time because he is still eating well etc. Should I accept the vet's recommendation? I am at a loss and the thought of putting him to sleep feels like I am murdering him. I know his quality of life is not good. I just don't know what to do. I have been praying he would die in his sleep, but that is not to be. I am so sorry for the length of this post. Any comments will be so welcome. Thank you.
