Hi, I'm looking for a really objective standpoint. I have an 8.5 year old dog named Samson who is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
. He stopped eating last week, only drinking and having tons of accidents. Took him to the vet who said he has an eye
infection and a possible UTI so we got meds for all three issues. He resumed eating briefly, and then stopped again altogether. Now pooping black, tarry stools and looks very unhappy. His bloodwork came back that he has diabetes
along with ketones in his urine and abnormal pancreas and liver levels, but on top of that he already has a heart murmur that will require cardiology care. What would his quality of life be moving forward? I see the change in my dog, and how unhappy he is now. :( He doesn't eat, doesn't play
, can barely walk up the stairs or go on walks. I'm leaning towards euthanasia as I don't know if getting him to survive all of these ailments will be worth it for him in the long run.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: I'm sorry? He doesn't have a wound on his foot.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Samson?
