We have a 15 yo cat that has Hypothyroidism. We tried to control it with medication, but since that wasn't working, she got surgery on the 10th. Since then, she's not been good, in fact, her weight is under 4 pounds. She only lays around, doesn't eat (have to force-feed her). Took her to the vet yesterday and he did an x-ray...finding out that she has cancer. He said without steroid treatment, she has about a week to live. He gave her a shot of steroids saying if she isn't considerably better by Sunday, then the steroids aren't working for her.
I've already accepted that I very well may have to call the vet on Monday to set up *THE* appointment because I'm honestly not seeing her pulling through this and I don't want her to suffer more than she has to. DH keeps saying that's too soon and that we should keep trying...not accepting that if the steroids don't work, NOTHING will.
How do I convince him this would be for the best?
