When to put a dog down with hip dysplasia
Posted by Anthony Planakis, Donations Coordinator on September 19, 2011
Filed under PetMeds Spotlight

Today’s PetMeds Spotlight is on when to put a dog down with hip dysplasia.  At some point, there will come a time that you are keeping the dog alive for your own benefit over the dog having some life left in them.  A person’s inability to say good-bye should not be outweighed by the pain and suffering of the dog that is going through it.

There are many meds and nutritional supplements that can help a dog facing this type of situation, but at some point, it can’t be helped any longer.

PLease speak to your vet about when it is time to let go, many will offer “in home” services as to not disrupt the dog and have them be at ease in a place they ar most comfortable.

I’ve been through it a few times already, and it never gets easier.
