If you had a pet that was on a strict diet for most of her life, but her vet said the end was near, would you let her eat anything she wanted (within reason) for her last weeks or months? (18 yr old toy poodle)
Mya is hanging in there. We are getting used to carrying her to the pee pad, but we know she has no quality of life. Is it selfish to want to keep an adorable blind, deaf, lame toy poodle people still mistake for a puppy around as long as possible?
tdaddy- losing a pet is soo hard. I'm sorry you are going through this :-(
Hang in there.
I'm sorry you're going through this, but also happy for the joy she has obviously given you, and the love you have given her. After a similar thing, my strategy is to always have 2 cats.
Well, gulp! She had a chance to pig out just once this morning. Roast beef!! Back to mush now. :(
Nothing wrong with treats. You could increase them in frequency, but to go open throttle... esp with concerns as to why she was on the diet in the first place.
All the best friend.
My deepest empathies if this situation rings true to you. A drastic change of diet can be debilitating to animals. Keep on with what you have been doing.
My mom had 2 toy poodles and has her second std poodle now. They are a smart wonderful breed.
Thank you. Her vet told us she'd put her down but we've had her so long and will miss her so much. I told the mrs we can buy another, but she wants a rest since "Mya" has needed so much extra attention since she went blind and deaf this year.
So sorry for what you're going through.
Awwwww, thank you. :)
Give your wife a hug for me give that dog whatever it likes.
I'd stick to her diet.
Probably a good idea since diet changes affect her bowels rather quickly. I just wanted her to have one meal she'd really enjoy, and she did. :)
