Well, your pet is upthere in age anMy Sheltie dog will be 14 yrs old come June. She is deaf except for sharp and loud sounds with ongoing arthritis
in her legs and it appears a bit in her hips. She sleeps a lot and does not like to go
for walks anymore. What is her prognosis healthwise and will she live much longer. I need to be prepared and constantly watch her and her diet.
Your pet is up there in age but it is hard for me to tell you how long she will live. Dogs do not die from arthritis or deafness, the quality of life decreses. As long as she does not have any other problems then she may be around for a while. vetcare
