I will keep this short and I am not asking you to make our decision, just thoughts:
We have a rescued Pitty and have had him for about 3 or so years, he is around 5 or 6 now. He was abandon twice. Here are his issues:
Both ACLís have small tears, we are giving him medication for this, you can see when he gets up after laying down for a while it is slow
Major separations issues
Allergic and scared of everything Ė has uncontrollable shaking
Lately he has been urinating in the house when we leave and we are pretty confident the medication is not causing the urination issue.
Now he is doing it at night when we are sleeping. He does have a doggie door and he does know how and does use it, so we donít understand why this is happening, this was not an issue prior to the last 6 months
He is scheduled for the vet tomorrow to see if he has other medical issues that maybe causing this. Plus now he is getting bumps all over his back. We have spent thousands on all of his issues and more just keep coming up, but we are not making this a money thing
If his urinating is not linked to something simple like a UTI, are we being selfish people if we say its time? We love him to death, but we have run out of things to try and do and he seems to be progressively getting worse. Thanks for reading.
