I have an older dog who will be 17 in the next 2 weeks.He does limp and his stool seems to be getting much darker.He is hard of hearing but i am still not sure what guidelines to use in knowing when his quality of life is no longer compatible with living. It seems 1 day he cannot walk another step then the next day he is more aware and stronger, Help!!
When your pet stops eating this is when you will know it is time. I recommend that you try Rimadyl for the arthritis. This is an anti inflamatory that works great for arthritis. good luck, vetcare
