Another dog gone.

Apologies in advance for this post but since we no longer have a GD board (and I agree with the "suspension" of the GDB) but I wanted to post this in case anyone else here needs the service I reference below.

Today our 14 year 3 month old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel died. If you are not familiar with the breed they are probably the most lovable and friendly dog breed ever developed. We knew his time was coming since this breed rarely makes it past 10 due to genetic issues related to heart conditions as the result of inbreeding. We did not knew that at the time we got him as a pup but soon found out when he had his first vet visit. He has been on meds his entire life which has cost serious $$ but has had a great life until the last 2 months when it all caught up with him. His vet prescribed an additional med (a diuretic) to help drain fluid from the heart and lungs and it helped a bit but my wife and I were watching him deteriorate over the past few weeks. After a tough night last night we decided he may not make it though today and called a company called Caring Pathways. This company can schedule a vet to euthanize your pet in your home, arrange for cremation etc. Cost is based on size of the animal but is so much better for the pet and the owner(s) since it is not in the cold sterile vet's office. The vet who comes to your home is kind and caring. So if you have older pets and are thinking of when that day will come look into Caring Pathways. It is more expensive than the vet's office but much better.

This was the 3rd dog we had to have put down in the last 3 months, all senior animals. No dogs for us for a while, that's for sure.

Again, apologies for posting this on this board.
