End of life

The end of life comes to all living beings.  Whether

elderly or diagnosed with a terminal medical condition

making the end of life as comfortable as possible for

your pet is always in your pet’s best interest.

A reduced quality of life can be noticed if the pet is becoming more irritable, restless or confused. He may lose his appetite and start avoiding his favorite activities.  You may notice that he will seek out unusual places to sleep or hide.  Some behavioral signs that may indicate your pet is in pain include excessive panting or gasping for breath, reclusiveness, reluctance to move and being picky with his food.
You can make your pet feel secure by surrounding her with her favorite things, like a warm blanket or special squeaky toy, and by providing a warm and cushioned sleeping spot. Take time to write the story of your pet’s life to celebrate the time you had together.  If you have children, let them help by drawing pictures or pasting photos of your pet in a book.  Detail his or her adventures from the first day you brought your pet home.  This project creates a memento for you to keep and encourages you to remember the happy times.
Keep in touch with your veterinarian to discuss when time has come for a humane euthanasia.
