Your pet is your friend. You've ideally enjoyed many years together, but now he is nearing the end of his life. While heartbreaking, it's important to know when it's time to say goodbye. At Peaceful Pet In Home, LLC, in Tucson, AZ, we provide end of life services for your pet friends, including at home euthanasia.
Medications can help relieve pain due to illness or injury. However, if medications aren't adequately controlling your pet's pain, it might be time to consider letting him go. You can speak with your vet about how much pain your pet may be experiencing.
You can also watch for signs, including grunting or crying frequently, trembling, panting, excessive licking, and inability to eat or drink.
Pain is one aspect of quality of life, but it's only part of the picture. Signs your pet is experiencing poor quality of life include lack of appetite, limited mobility, depression or a lack of enjoyment, and a loss of bladder or bowel control.
In addition to these signs, use your instinct. You'll be able to observe or feel how much enjoyment your pet is getting from their life. If he is not enjoying life, it might be time to let him go.
Everyone has good days and bad days. However, as your pet nears the end of his life, you might notice that the bad days begin to outnumber the good ones. It's tempting to hold out, hoping he will begin to have more good days again. However, if your pet is old, they might never improve.
Lastly, you'll need to consider your pet's long-term health. If he has a terminal illness or is suffering due to old age, there's little to no chance of his health improving. It may be best to consider euthanasia to avoid prolonging your pet's discomfort.
