  1. Introductions
    Good evening, dogforum community. My username's Amita in dedication for my beloved fluff ball, Amy. I recently said my farewells and I am having a hard time processing. I figured this would be the best place to grieve and remember her by. She was diagnosed with cancer and it has been an...

    I've read a lot of articles about how to know whether it's time to put a dog to sleep, but I'm still torn about what to do in our particular situation. My pup is 11 years old (a long-haired dachshund mix) who I've had for 8 years. In the past couple of years, he's developed worsening arthritis...

    Hi Everyone, I'm faced with an incredibly difficult situation. About 3 weeks ago (two days after my father passed away), my 11 year old poodle mix and I was playing in our front yard. While playing fetch, she ran to get the ball, yelped and then refused to use her leg. At first I thought it...

    Hi! I'm in the process of trying to decide my 15 year old Cocker Spaniel's quality of life. He has a mass in his right ear that is growing and pushing against his brain. As a result the ear has become a breeding ground for bacteria. He now has MRSA and others that I can't recall. He is on...
  5. General Dog Discussion
    I have a complicated situation and am torn about the right thing to do. Our dog is a 9 year old Pit Bull/Lab mix. He has been perfectly healthy his whole life, never showing signs of aggression or anxiety. About 1 1/2 years ago, he suddenly went blind (SARDS) and has been slowly declining...

    I have major problems with my dog. She has ocd-like behavior. She will intentionally hold her poop even though we are outside and I encourage her to poop. It practically hangs from her butt. But she holds it for some reason! Not a bad stomach at all. And then at night sometimes she poops in her...

    Hello. I am the proud owner of a 16 year old dog, Guava. He is a border collie/ lab mix, 65 lbs.. He turned 16 this February :) Guava's been having many accidents in the home since December 2015 – I often find him laying in his mess now. He’s severely arthritic and his vet felt that his...

    So I came onto the Dog Forum because I am searching for something... clarity I guess. My 17 year old toy poodle, Rusty, is not doing well. Physically he's "ok" for a senior. But the vet says his cognitive functions have declined so much that he has no quality of life. I get a tail wag maybe...

    My dog Zoey will be 10 yrs. old in April (sometime after tomorrow) ... She has had two surgeries on her back right knee, due to torn cruciate. July 2012 and then again: January 2013. The 2nd surgeon seemed to be more skilled and used a multi-filament line, rather than a mono-filament line...

  12. Dog Training and Behavior
    Dear everyone, I have a male (castrated) foxterrier mix. He turned 14 this year. When he was younger, we were doing a lot of agility and other dog sports and even though he has always been dominant, I have managed to keep him busy and nice. Two years ago, he had been diagnosed with Cushing...

    This is my first post, I had to find somewhere to talk about this. sorry in advance for the long post. I had my dog, Marley, put down yesterday. She was 13 years old, had skin problems, bad arthritis, hearing was going, and had become incontinent(sp). I wrestled with the decision for a good...

    I have made the excruciatingly painful decision to have Max, my 11 year old German Shepherd put to sleep tomorrow. I have never had to do this before with any pet and I am already in pieces about it but I know he would be happier. Has anyone got any advice they can give me so that I dont bring...
