My first dog, Maggie has lymphoma. She is dying. The vet told us about 6 months ago she had three weeks. She has been doing well, and is gradually getting more sleepy and having a harder time getting around. According to the doctor, she isn't in pain. I am not sure if she is or isn't. We do plan on putting her down when the time is right. My problem is when is the time right? Dh says when she isn't able to get happy for anything anymore. Like you hold up cheese and she ignores it.
She has been whining a bit today and she seems to be having more trouble getting around. I do know the time is getting short.
I am so trying to get through Christmas. My kids lost their grandpa in January of this year and I was hoping they didn't lose their beloved dog at Christmas.
What should I look for to know when the time is right? Most people I have asked have said, you will just know. Your opinion?
