Assess your dog's overall quality of life. Consider factors such as pain, mobility, and enjoyment of daily activities.
If your dog is experiencing chronic pain that cannot be effectively managed with medication or other interventions, it may be time to consider euthanasia.
When a dog's mobility is severely compromised, affecting their ability to move, walk, or go to the bathroom, it can significantly impact their quality of life.
In cases of terminal or chronic illnesses where the dog's condition is progressively worsening, humane euthanasia may be a compassionate choice.
A significant and prolonged loss of appetite, leading to weight loss and weakness, can be indicative of severe health issues.
If your dog is unable to control bodily functions and experiences chronic incontinence, it can be a source of distress for both the pet and the owner.
Consider drastic and negative changes in your dog's behavior, such as aggression, confusion, or signs of severe anxiety or distress.
If your dog's condition is not improving or responding to treatment, despite your best efforts and veterinary care, it may be a sign that their body is no longer able to cope.
Use positive reinforcement techniques, such as treats and praise, to encourage good behaviour. Avoid punishment-based training, as it can lead to fear and anxiety.
