She has been seeing our vet frequently, adding new medications and finding new problems with every visit. She was treated for pneumonia with an antibiotic. The vet will not recommend euthanization, but I can't help but think it is the way to go.
She has slowed down so much, often not wanting to walk outside to use the bathroom. Her appetite is barely existent, hardly eating, she does not get excited and want to play anymore. The constant coughing has to be hurting her, but when I raise this question to my vet, I get the response of taking her to a cardiologist 2 1/2 hours away from my home to make her more comfortable. I was told by the same vet that I would be lucky to have her around another year. I feel as if they are more interested in money than the actual quality of life of my pom. Would this be your same recommendation or would you suggest the option of euthanization?
