When to know it's time
by Rhonda Lee
Hi, I have an 18 year old Jack Russell that has had bad discs for several years. The vet has off and on put her on steroids and a muscle relaxer. Several months ago she seemed to be in pain so we took her back and he did another round of the meds. Every time he has done a kidney test that came back fine. But her back legs are giving out more each day. She is eating good, drinking water, and going outside for bathroom but when she gets up and walks her legs are just giving in on her. If we get keys she still gets excited and wants to ride. But other than that she is laying down. She has never slept anywhere but with us or near us. Yesterday she started laying in the kitchen floor alone and doesn't want to come in living room. She doesn't seem to be in pain This is breaking my heart but I don't want to prolong anything for her. I don't know what to do. I can barely see to type from tears. Anyone had any experience with this. All replies will be so appreciated. Good bless!
