Anyway, I think we will have this choice to face. I have that bad feeling. I am dreading the vet visit. Money is not an issue, just to get that out there. For those who have opted for it did you in the end think it was the right choice for your dog?
Piper has other issues. He has been on Thyroid meds since he was 3. He OFA'd mild HD, which I suspected and had him under for the snip with OFA's. His footprints in the wet sand told it all. He is already on Adaquin for his joints. He turned 11 in March. When he is just hanging out on the couch he is absolutly fine. I want to go in prepared and discuss all options. The constant risk of Pneumonia after surgery really makes me pause. Piper is NOT a fighter so to speak.
