    Default Thoughts - elderly dog to be euthanised

    Hugs. It's so hard, even when it's the right (and kind) thing to do. I'm looking down the barrel of the same decision for my beloved dog. He's just been diagnosed with cancer that has probably spread. The findings are being reviewed by a couple if specialists and I'm waiting to hear back. Part of me knows I need to put him to sleep soon as the surgery will be too invasive for too little chance of survival past a few months. Especially as he's obviously not comfortable now, but it's going to get so much worse. The irrational (selfish) part is clinging to hope that the phone call from the specialist to say they think it's worth "treating". When I'm honest, I realise any surgery/chemo at this point is likely to be for my benefit, and he's lucky to have the chance to go peacefully at home before his body fades away and falls apart. But it's still so very hard to face.

    Please don't quote - I'll delete later.

    @clbj sorry that you are facing this tough decision. It is so hard to see them suffer and so hard to let them go. I just kept coming back to 'will he have a good life from this point?'

    Big hugs.

    These are wise words. People fight so hard for humans to pass away with the same level of dignity as our pets. The responsibility of being able to make end of life decisions is both a blessing and a curse. I hope you got to sit down with a glass of wine this weekend and reminisce on the good times with your old mate.
