my dog sleeps all day when i'm gone

my dog sleeps all day when i'm gone

She also has some arthritis in her hips so that slowed her running and jumping a good bit. And he came upstairs this morning but he couldn’t get down. ?would I be a bad person to let her go to doggy heaven? I’m so sorry for your loss. Lately she’s been crying in the middle of the night I think for attention because as soon as I’m there she goes to sleep. We see our vet at least 2 a month to do regular checks. Thank you for posting this, our 15 year old boy can’t seem to keep anything down and hasn’t wanted to move in a couple of days. It’s such a hard decision. Any advice? I want to pay homage to the overwhelming joy that she brought to my family for so many years and do the humane thing for her. Has he been examined by a vet? I just put my cat down in April and I HATE doing this. She has free access to the house, but all she does is sleep (my husband is home). She is unique and sentient. he starts to play bite or grabs his toys to play. She went totally blind overnight. I don’t know what to do my Rat Terrier is 17 1/2 years old. She had been blind for 4.5 years and in a wheelchair for 7 yrs and yet nobody thought of “putting her down”. I’ve never had to put a dog down before, the few I’ve had have went on their own. I know deep down he’ll not have long, there’s no way to treat it without proper diagnosis but we don’t have time now for that. He can’t see, but knows his way around the front yard. She is getting very unstable on her legs and she often will go in another room away from our younger dog that has been her buddy for 6 years now. I’m not saying you should put your dog down now – just monitor her quality of life/pain closely so you’ll know when to make a decision that’s right for her. In the crisp, cold winter air, I hope to find strength when she looks at me for her treat because she pooped not to breakdown knowing what lies ahead for us both. The list is a good thing to make, when your best friend does not like doing any of those things, yeah, its probably time to evaluate, but its still hard, really hard to send your good friend to the Rainbow Bridge. He hadn’t eaten in 3 days, was very wobbly and had labored and fast breathing. She needs to be seen by a vet to determine what’s wrong and if she’s in pain. My governor just issued a shelter in place order which means I won’t have family and friends around a Thanksgiving, and it might mean that home-vet visits won’t be an option for awhile. He is basically skin and bones. It all depends on the dog. Earl (basset) and Kanga (terrier) played in the water for a few minutes, took several slow and easy walks and relaxed in the sun. It is similar to Vesibulaire disorder. He at times does not want to be bothered but I know he would never intentionally want to hurt his buddy, but that actually instilled in me a bit of fear, or reality rather. He had a massive seizure about 930 on a Tuesday evening. He did really well. Gina. You should get an opinion from a vet before you decide. Most dog owners who have had to put down a dog will say that you shouldn’t worry because your dog will let you know when it’s time to let him/her go, and while that was true in Dylan’s case, it may not be true for every dog in every situation. An anti-depressant helped with her appetite for about a week but eventually she stopped eating altogether…even bacon couldn’t tempt her. It was so sad, and his sister died two days later lying on his grave. Hug and love your pets everyday… God bless all. Hopefully it will be awhile. My maltipoo, Leila, will be 16 in 5 days..Sweet Sixteen. He growls at my other dog who had been with him for 5 years Walks around the house like he’s in a daze! We could have put him on steroids to reduce the swelling and bought a couple more weeks but at what cost to his happiness? Sunday was his twelfth birthday. Is it time to put her down? She is an abnormally large dog for a female, most of her life weighing in at 225lbs, but all muscle – not fat. If their is anyone that can help me. Doesn’t play ball anymore, use to be his favorite! Can’t go up any stairs, can’t get over the lip of the sliding door without being lifted. None of our dogs have had trouble with the stairs except the exception of our chocolate lab for the last 6 months of his life when he was almost 13. Here are 15 breeds that seem to enjoy sleeping more than other breeds. She sleeps a lot. I’m so sorry but I think you did the right thing. “Hormonal imbalances and diseases, like hypothyroidism, can make a dog sleep more,” Dr. … I hoped Dylan would make it to 14 but it wasn’t meant to be. they did a physical exam and xray. Also he is incontinent. We were very fortunate to discover it on a Monday and have her amputation on Thursday. First, give medical cannabis for dogs. I’m so sorry. They told me they got it all. He tries so hard to stand while he’s eating he poops while he’s eating. She still loves to eat her food and treats. There seems to be no reason for this. It was a hard decision because she didn’t have any life-threatening illness that I knew of, but her quality of life was in the tank. I just can’t.” I definitely didn’t know. My new dad, his name’s Dave, was sitting in a truck crying for he had just put his old dog Lucy down and God told me to run up to his truck and show him that Lucy had a son. She looks at me with those loving eyes, she can still get around sort of and eats. Thank you, I’m glad it helps. He sounds like a great dog. Our daughter would run in the house and head straight for her furry buddy. He cries because he can’t get up and has issues walking when I do get him up. We took him home from the breeder at 7 weeks old. I have loved all my dogs dearly-Lily, though, was my special baby. He followed me all day and slept with me. I stopped taking him with me because he struggles so much to get in the car and while riding. Seeing what your dog is going through and thinking only of them will make your decision go a little easier. If he doesn’t appear to be in major pain, is eating, and appears happy he should be fine for now. She’s the first of two dogs I’ve ever cared for. He became totally incontinent of urine about 4 months ago when the vet cathed him to see if a stone was in his urethra. She losing her back legs really quickly. He sleeps a lot when I'm away from the house. The phrase “better to be a week too early than a minute too late” keeps going thru my mind. I was struggling with the decision as well until someone told me to make the list. I keep telling myself I will not let it go on for as long as I did last time. Should we wait until she loses her appetite to make a decision? When she no longer dogs any/most of them, or appears to be in intense pain it’s probably time. I feel so bad for him and keep wondering if I could afford further testing, would we find the cause of his condition and be able to treat it? Her quality of life was poor, she had respiratory problems and could not walk more than a few steps but she still had a good appetite!? To All that have had to put their pet down, I am so sorry. Once he stopped eating we knew it was time to let him go. sometimes all day :( what do i do im getting worried This can cause them to lose bowel control and/hind end weakness. I give her fluid with a syringe squirting it a few drop at the time. But she isn’t eating like she used to in that robust, last meal type of fashion. We finally had to,have him euthanized. Heart, eyes, kidneys, liver. Our dog wagged his tail for the first time in days when the vet came to our home to euthanize him. Glad your dog is still going strong. I don’t understand what you would like help with. It is obviously inevitable and it’s nice to share our hearts with each other knowing that every dog owner goes through this…. I’m glad I saw this though because I have been down this road several times but it always makes me feel better to read others heartbreaking stories too so that I know I’m not alone. He was a good friend, and is missed. We’ve both never lost an animal before. Only thing they could find was a few bad spots on his back they said was arthritis and one of his ears was sensitive so the thought maybe an inner ear issue was causing him to feel unbalanced. He’s the best dog I’ve ever had, my best friend. I don’t know how to tell if she is ready and I don’t want to drag it out because I am spiraling emotionally and will hate myself if I do it too soon or too late. I may need to have the stones removed but i am debating since his overall health is not great. Thank you for reading. When he saw her come up to his bed he wagged his tail for the first time in days. If it’s a struggle for him to make it through the day and he can’t go outside to use the bathroom without help you should consider if that’s how he wants to live. Her back was so sore. All of a sudden he started have seizure and it was horrible. We like to think he let us know we made the right decision. The next morning, the first time he had to be carried to the yard. Love dad. There are other quality of life issues…..no longer being able to take a walk, get up, fecal and urinary incontinence, and barking that she never did before because of anxiety. Yesterday he ate treats and maybe two bites of food. People told us something would tell us when it was time to put him down, and that’s exactly what happened. Last May we said goodbye to my Little Bear who was the love of my life. Here is an example: if he is going to the bedroom, he does it at full speed as if he is afraid of something. Even if it is not imminent today , it’s coming fast. She’s sleeping close to 20 hrs a day. He has anal sac cancer and we’ve opted to not do surgery but keep him upbeat, on a good diet and herbal drops. I love him so much, have so many happy memories. He is more thirsty than before. He was struggling with a variety of health issues including major breathing problems. With the 13 yr old, if he is in pain constantly i will choose to stop it by euthanasia if pills don’t work. Hello, as I sit next to my 13 yr old Lab Mix, my Heart breaks because tomorrow at 11 am we go to our Vet to send him to the Rainbow Bridge. I feel like I’m betraying her by putting her to sleep, should I do it? The pain of losing Maxie was/is so unbearable. He is still eating – not as voraciously as before but now gets and eats 6 cups in a day because he was looking VERY thin but he does not seem to be putting any weight on. And you are right, I wish I had been braver and had been able to do this for him sooner. I cried reading as I have a terrible decision to make. I feel like I let her down, and I didn’t give her enough time to recover. It sounds like he’s still doing ok to me. Overall, her decline is clear to me and the time will come relatively soon, but I don’t know that I’ll know when it’s time because she’s been so up and down. When we put down our dog the vet who came to our house she assured us that it was time to let him go, and I could do it over, I probably waited 2-3 days … I had to put my 14 year old German Shepherd to sleep July 9 and I feel so guilty and so hurt. I call him my Italian Stallion and I don’t think he has ever met someone who didn’t fall in love with him, except for people with CHS-Cold Heart Syndrome. In my opinion, being away from their family is tougher for dogs than moving to a new environment. Your checklist helped because I realized that she was not really doing anything she loved and was in pain from the renal failure and arthritus. I’m glad it helped. 1 decade ago. I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry. I don’t live in Seattle.. but I’m really (REALLY) struggling to make a euth. Eating but not like before. She spared you the pain of watching her go – it was her final gift to you. She could still go on short hikes but they would cause her to be in pain for days afterwords. My husband started last night putting their water up on the counter which worries me because if she didn’t need all the water she’s drinking she wouldn’t be drinking it. Sleeping often. It may need to be removed. I have a 15 year old McNab. We sat on the ground together with him. I have to carry her down the single step in front of my home when I let her out. I’m so sorry. My Westie, (West Highland Terrier. Looking for that special buddy that will sleep in with you each morning? Our old guy Sarge is 14. I’m so sorry you have to go through it. Over the last 3 months he seems to have lost the will to live, despite medication, he never barks or wags his tail and we have just become his carers. Help!!! I don’t think “functioning” is really living, and I am at constant debate with the idea of letting go. She is my baby, I love her more than anything on this planet. “If they go from being a dog that sleeps very little to a dog that sleeps all the time, something is wrong.” If your dog is having trouble sleeping, it might also be a sign of an illness. We just had to put down my sweet dachshund, Boonie, 4 weeks ago. I asked if I could also get one for the anxiety (with tears streaming down my face). I too am struggling, although I do have an apt for my sweet dog Daisy this Friday. When she’s up she tends to pace and pant. She gradually stopped eating and later, only responding to spoon feeding yogurt (and some peanut butter) – and finally not eating or drinking. She was a reject from a puppy mill and at 2 years old she came into my life. I really just don’t know what to do .. She is going deaf and blind, wobbly in the back in the mornings, but I say, as long as she is hungry, I will feed her and sustain her. Is this the best time ? Hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. I’m not a vet but our vet told us that when dogs start to pee and poop in their beds it’s a pretty strong sign that they are ready to let go. I’m so confused. She loses balance falls over hard, and panics because she can’t get back up, so much she has rubbed a sore in her side trying to get up. Tucker is a solid white Miniature Schnauzer with a few ailments. Anyway.. she is a tremendous survivor and my hero and I don’t want to let her go. We spent time with him in his backyard, his favorite place We said our goodbyes. I’m so sorry. I had an almost 13 year old, border collie/golden retriever mix that I had adopted as an 8 week old pup. I am ultimately leaving it up to my husband, and if it takes doing daily laundry and carpet cleaning I will just to make Tank more comfortable. The vet says he is 100% healthy other than his back hips. She has a grade 4 heart murmur, is now coughing violently, and is panting heavily. I have a zoo of animals in my house and each one of these babies have as much of my heart as my 3 kids. My 9 year old beagle lab mix is seriously struggling with arthritis pain. It can’t be removed and the Vet says there is nothing we can do. So as soon as I got the leash out to take her to the car to go to the vet she jumped right up off the couch, and went down the stairs to the door. I made an appointment to have my baby euthanized at our house at 4pm. I have actually been crying my eyes out over him for months watching his slowing down and hips declining. Everything else on my dog was fine. But I think he didn’t want to leave me as much as I didn’t want to him to go. So my dog is 19 years old. If your dog is … Your email address will not be published. I’m sad for us, his family, for the empty spaces everywhere in the house. I gave Mikey back to God eight months ago. He’s been at the vet since under close observation but no improvements. It’s humiliating for them to soil their own beds, and they wouldn’t do it unless they have serious medical issues. However, the average unemployed dog needs more sleep, roughly around 12 hours. When she sneezes blood comes out of her mouth & nose. putting down an animal that you love is one of the most un-selfish compassionate things you will most likely ever do in your life. It’s all those little things that defined her personality. Yes they do get lonely. Falls when he’s eating and pooping. He was an unusually big Bassett. I can’t put my dog to sleep It was always an accident – he never knew he did it until he saw it. My old girl CoCo turned 21 in December… yes that is correct! I wish I had seen the list of 10 things as it would have helped make the decision. My first born, Mason, is soon to be 16 on feb 1st! I had Zoey all her life and have had Chi binky since she was 5 weeks. Dylan did do some stumbling, primarily because we have hard wood floors. One week later she died. He doesnt hurt and he is still happily eating so we are going to wait a little while longer. Someone please tell me I’m not doing this too early. Yesterday was snowing like crazy and he loves the snow …I cleaned my porch and the steps and I took him outside ..omg he was in the heaven even he couldn’t run like before he was rolling over the snow and watch my kids who they were playing. I’m so sorry. My husband and I put our chihuahua down on Monday the 21st after 17 years of happiness with her. Doesn’t seem to be in pain and the get said she couldn’t find anything wrong. We recently found he has a form of cancer, although the vet is unsure of what type as we hadn’t even started the detailed biopsies/x rays etc to diagnose him properly. I’m so sorry about your dog. I am torn, between keeping her with us and letting her be comfortable…. She stopped eating so I cooked chicken with water and mixed it into her food. Is this the time? Last night was the first night he was incontinent, urinating in both his bed and by the back door. You should base it on the quality of life your dog still has. Thank you for sharing your experiences. Thanks so much for sharing your story. Did you try to get another opinion? I’m sure you’ll know when he’s ready to let go. My whole family is heartbroken. As tough as it is to do I thought about my parents, who both passed away in the last year. I have a basset hound that is almost 10. I’m sorry you’re going through this. Including me forcing a bite or two. He is yorkie and for the most part has been pretty healthy most of his life. She pees in the house on a daily basis. I’d just looked up Jack’s file last week and saw that he came to our house in 2004 and his owner, who lived next door, said he was about 18 months old then, he’s a black lab. And others have serious separation anxiety. Now my 17 year old chihuahua is not doing well. Maybe someone who reads the post has a suggestion. He won’t eat his own food but will eat ours, he is always clinging onto me with his head into me and when he is in his bed outside he tries to get out. We have a split level house, so the stairs have been a huge, huge struggle. Some of the meds (like prozac) that are used on people can also help with dogs. Thank you for giving your perspective. I don’t know the normal recovery time for back issues but I would imagine that like in humans it’s longer as they age. He was 14, mostly blind, mostly deaf, fought back issues for the last 6 years, and yet it was a stupid brain tumor that was his final nemesis. It sounds like your dog is fine, physically. I’ve been spending as much time as possible with her and I’m hoping she’ll give me a sign, but what if she doesn’t? I don’t know. Today August 05,2019 my miniature Pinscher is by the Vet!!.. I’m waiting due he is 16 years old his leg crossed and he hardly stands!!.. In the last few days, he has stopped eating and cannot go outside the house and get back in without assistance. At least twice a day. He didn’t want to go out or get up. I am terrified that the day is arriving, and know that I’m going to be a wreck. I am so confused. Notify me of follow-up comments by email. He eats and drinks and will go down and up stairs once/twice a day to toilet as well as use puppy pads. He had the vet come and put him down at his home. She gets very thirsty. So her blood results were perfect, as they were amazed because of her age. THANK YOU!!!! I know this will pass and my wife says we did all we could and he had a great long life, but I can’t help wondering what if? We used a harness to get her up and I pretty much lifted and carried her in and ouside.She started the prednisone again, but this time it didn’t help. Be held up to eat , he can walk but not stand for too long without his legs giving up he’s been pooing and weeing in the house for quite some time now and has on his bed on occasions, vet says he just won’t get up one day, he’s eating and drinking but his walks have been cut right back because he does struggle at times,he also has a nightly routine of getting up sitting down he seems unsettled for a good couple of hours a night the vet says he’s probably a bit senile I just don’t want him to be suffering he’s on metacam for arthiritis I hope I know when it’s time hope he can tell me hate the thought of my Barny suffering . Maybe it already has. My situation is almost identical to yours with my 11 year old girl. And I don’t know if it’s time to put her to rest she can walk a bit in the house I have hard word flooring so her back legs slide. I must say he has a strong spirit and I’m very fortunate he’s still around. At any time of year, but especially around the holidays, social media feeds are packed with heartwarming stories of shelters adopting out large numbers of dogs to their forever homes. Cleaning up urine and feces…which quite honestly doesn’t upset me because I know he can’t help it. She starts whining every night and there’s nothing we can do. All the best to those who have to make probably one of the hardest decisions ever. I’m just baffled by how he can be fine one minute and basically a vegetable the next. He has a hard time moving, hard time breathing, going deaf & blind. Awh, that is so sweet of you trying to help. I waited 3 or 4 days too long before I made the decision to let our dog go and if I could do it over again I would have done it sooner to relieve his suffering. His already poor eyesight, became worse. I know his time is coming soon. You can’t always know about a dog’s health issues so please don’t blame yourself. Wow! I panicked and agree to put him down!! He stayed for several days and ate a little while he was there, but when he came home he stopped eating again. I’m not a vet so I can’t offer medical advice. Robert! I’m pretty sure I don’t want surgery mainly because he is 13 and am afraid he won’t recover, plus the cost. Thank you for your wonderful responses and this article. Her legs are weak and she falls down a lot. I’m so confused on what to do.please help! They ran it in house and there were traces of blood and abnormally elevated amounts of white blood cells. Reading this makes me cry. So , I looked it up. I know in my heart that he is not going to get better. He has had two big ones really that’s it and we have just let them be as they don’t bother him at all. He acts as if something is chasing him all the time. I’m so sorry. It sounds like he’s had a great life. His bowels so far are normal except increased because of more eating. No tail wagging and she rolls if she tried tu walk. I am sorry for your loss. He’s a well-trained basset hound that knows several tricks and is a lover of the water. I think many dog owners wonder if there was more they could do. He is a Seizure Alert Dog. I can’t tell you what to do, but after my experience I think it’s better to let them go a little early than a little late so they don’t suffer. The back legs, seemed to have suffered partial paralysis, she said we could get a referral to see a neurosurgeon to do more work up and check nerves, and spine. Once she stopped eating that we put her on Greg pet which helped for a while. My dogs insulin and prescription dog food and insuljn needles are about $200 a month, and she went blind from the diabetes as well. I have 2 suggestions. This little dog has always been a very robust, tough, energetic dog. He has been a healthy active boy for the majority of his life. I’ve watched him from 8 weeks old to 10 years old, I’ve watched him from a big fluffy puppy to an old man with a receding hairline….the hair on the front of his head is so grey and short and stiff, idk if I can do this. They also had a hard time checking him out which I would think is normal, I wouldn’t want people looking in my mouth and rear even on a good day. Putting her down would be the hardest thing ever but I just don’t want her to be suffering. I can’t afford to have her health evaluated. We’ve been with numerous dogs through this portion of their journey – and while it never gets any easier, we do feel blessed to be caring for an old soul who has been our everything. I have an 11yr old mixed breed dog. I don’t know what to do. Its just getting up and down that is bothering him because the tumor is so large. He had really bad arthritis but was still getting around ever so slowly. They send us home told us to wait for the urine results to come back in few days, gave us Clavamax pills to clear up any infection if there was any, but without a urine test we could not know for sure. I have helplessly watched her waste away unable to do anything to help. Her sister had surgery at 4 and ended up having cancer and dying within a few weeks. One vet said I should put him down after looking at him for a couple minutes. I’ve lost a few pets in my day as I grew up with animals in the house last was our family dog Martha a cocker who I loved dearly. We miss her terrribly but know we made the right decision. She is 14yr old chihuahua. Kids get mad about having to clean up all her messes in the house. OMG thank you for this write up could not have come at a better time, I am going through this right now, its so hard I have 2 Chihuahua/Miniature Pinscher I guess there Chipin’s they are brothers & just turned 15 Dec.10. etc. Until then, I will scratch her butt, kiss her head, throw her tug, and take her out for her late-night stroll. At first we thought UTI, incontinence, but with normal labs we knew it had to be a territorial thing. I brought her in and dried her and she went to sleep. I am in such a state. I hate it for him. I give him tramadol also when i sense he is not comfortable. He bumps into the door or walls, and about 6 years ago he had a seizure, which I think threw off his peripheral vision. I knew his time was coming but I didn’t think it would be so sudden. I’m so sorry you’re going through this. She also has a couple of fatty tumors which our vet said are not a problem. I’ve been concerned that I’m prolonging his life only thinking of myself, but he does love to eat and never turns down a treat. It sounds like you’re making the right decision. But anyone out there who believes they can’t get through it, they can. And today, she no longer will be able to go with me. I really appreciate the stories you all have written regarding your old pets. Now, she can barely stands up. I will say that one of the primary things a dog owner should do is prevent his/her pet from suffering. I believe “euthanize” is more correct, altho my preference is to assist my loved ones over the Rainbow Bridge, same as I would want for myself, or a human companion. He’s lost so much muscle. I realized just how much he had changed in just those few months – that he’s not doing well and he is not going to get any better. Cathy, thank you so much for this post. Photo from Seattle DogSpot. 20 years is a very long life for a dog as I’m sure you know. He’s been my boy all these years and I don’t know how to let go. I’m sorry you’re going through this. Before I say anything I want to emphasize I’m not a vet and this is only my opinion, not medical advice. Ten seems young … I wish I could attach a picture. She knows me and my touch and responds to it with vocalization. The kitten was given away. I am disabled so the money it tight with all my doctor, Dentist & Eye surgeon. We held his funny floppy head in our laps and it was over …. Baths are hard for him, standing too long is probably the problem there. I have a German shepherd xmastiff a large boy around 12-13 he’s very arthiritic in his back legs and his shoulder he now limps when walking his back legs are weak he has to. *wipes tears*.
