There are several questions surrounding senior dogs and euthanasia. For one, when is a dog considered “old”? Unlike humans, advanced age in dogs vary depending on their breed. There’s also a lot of confusion regarding the geriatric issues that dogs have to deal with. But the most pressing question that pet owners have in mind relates to how their dogs will be put down.
As a pet owner, making a decision to have your dog euthanized is a huge deal. You will have to ask yourself once, twice, and several more times before deciding to finally pull the plug. More often than not, it’s a difficult—even impossible—choice to make, but it’s a decision that has to be done. What it all comes down to is how much you love your dog to make this life-changing decision.
