My Beautiful Dog.

I took our lovely Greyhound to the Vet today. He was 12 years old which is a very good run for a Greyhound. Sadly he was in heart failure, so the Vet and I decided that it was time to put him down. I was there and it was peaceful. Have you ever had to have a pet put down? We are getting him cremated and will put the Urn out with our late daughter as she loved him. I am sad but also know that he is not suffering. Thank you.

I have also had to make this decision, it is such a difficult one and thoughts are with you. Pets become such loved members of a family and will always hold a special place in our hearts. Reply

Very sad to hear about this. Our pets are part of the family.
The ashes of Roflie the dog sits in a bag at my house so i do have some understanding.

Oh! So sorry to hear Pags.. I don’t know what to say.. we don’t have dogs, we have cats, I don’t really know how to respond to this kind of situation. Surely, putting your dog down is very stressful and hard, so please keep yourself busy. Take care of yourself and don’t worry, I’m sure your dog will be very happy to be with your daughter. May God have mercy on them. Reply

I had to have my little boy put sown recently and the vet that came out was of the opinion that he was fine or at the very least alert and fully understanding what was going on. Sure he was groaning when he laid down, preferred to stand up instead of lay down and was falling over going up 3 stairs not to mention the big one was refusing to get into the car for a ride of a morning.
He had an enlarged heart and was retaining fluid and the vet we had been taking him to for years was saying treatment and burning up lots of money for tests that would have shown what we already knew and not offered him any benefit and if anything maybe have killed him undergoing the tests.
She got quite upset when I suggested Open Heart Surgery or a Heart Transplant in a Great Dane was not an option and even if it was possible I certainly could never afford to pay for it but just maybe I could swing some Dialysis for him but I doubt that he would sit still and accept the time for that to happen let alone stick needles into him for hours at a time and have him lie down while hooked tot he unit.
OK So she did not know I was fixing Dialysis Machines years ago and could have maybe got one of the ones that was no longer used but getting any dog to lie down and have a treatment for that long wasn't going to happen and it certainly was not going to happen again and again which would have been required because he was retaining fluid.
The poor vet didn't understand when she said Enlarged Heart and Fluid Retention I fully understood what it meant and it was a death sentence in a month or so if not sooner.

Oh Pags, I'm so sorry. Know that the measure of grief you are feeling is a measure of the love you shared. Our furbabies hold such a huge part of our hearts, but be reassured your final act was one of love and dignity. Sending love, strength and light xxx Reply

So so sorry. Have had to do same with a couple of dogs and many cats and its never ever easy. They give so much and ask for so little in return. Great is the vet who will let you be there with them - to have you there holding them as they pass keeps things calm and is a beautiful thing for them to know you love them right to the end. It's a scary thing for them not knowing what is happening to them and to have those they trust with them makes it a little easier for them. Always harder on those left behind whether it's humans or our fur babies. Thinking of you and your family. xx Reply

No, I do know of two of my friends who had to do this, not an easy thing to do. They both have urns and the name of their pet. So sorry to hear you had to go through this. He is such a lovely strong dog. Reply
