I have a 15 going ot 16 in few months shitzu Ginger , she has cushings disease for 9 yrs and a left bad leg high anxiety , and maybe bad teeth happening which she has not allowed ANYONE near her mouth for about a yr or so . \\\i had a heart prodecure done with heart pump 3 weeks ago , and had no choice but to put her and my maltese in a kennel which was suppose to be good. she is use to her home and territory as she got older. she was set in her ways let say. so I noticed when I got her home with in a few days she seemed thinner so I watched her , she didn't eat much and was just a bit off , I wondered if she was just worried about me , ? so just last Thursday I noticed she was not looking good so I took her in emergency , they kept her for 3 days and 4 vets said she be ok to do iv , wheni went there on the 3rd night to visit as they wanted me to see if she would eat, since she wont eat anything for them I tried.. I saw in her eyes and when she looked at me crying which she never I s vocal or bossy , with in minutes she was out of it , I'm like omg I called the doc in and he cme in to say , your dog is not going to make it and she has all these problems I said she want go home. and my dog seemed dopped up I questioned why is my dog peeing on me whch she never does and seems so high on something, doc then went on to say she is hooked up to iv is easy to do euthization don't you think? I said I'm taking my dog home thanks. paid my outrageous bill and took my baby home where she has been calm since and her own vets who does sq. her buns when went in er was 60 when left they were 30 my vet is hoping to have them lower by wed he be happy in the 20 s I guess. ifnot he said well you know ? I got what he was saying .. What I don't get is why I'm here asking all you wonderful people , how do you know its final stage? with my dog having so many issues alziers, ect I'm not sure what is what... he is what she is doing pacing staring as if she hears something , NOT AT ALL EATING except when we had pizza yesterday she had all the pizza crust... licks gravy I have TRIED EVERYTHING to feed her seems she wants hard food not soft , but hard dog food NOPE not at all wont touch any kind. she is peeing a lot is that good? she is drinking a lot is that good? oh btw her pee is clear and lots of it.. she don't vomit no diareeah, I don't know where her enegery comes from not eating for over 2 days or more a decent meal. my other dog 5 yrs old wont leave her but today he hides in his bed which I find odd.
