Good morning everyone, Copper's DM is progressing. He is now having difficulty swallowing on occasion. The inevitable discussion of euthanasia has begun with my husband and we are at a loss as to when to do it. We know we don't want to let it get so bad that he can't get up on his own. We also don't want to do it too soon... Is there a too soon? We know he will not get better. Why draw it out? Is he suffering mentally as he is supposedly not in pain? He had lost about a pound at last vet appointment and that was within a couple weeks of his last. These days he is looking tired and weary. Just this morning I was bringing in firewood and he fell over trying to run around and play as he has so many times in the past. Needing some encouragement and advice. Thank you all for your thoughts.
