I have a almost 14 year old male neutered pitbull with

I have a almost 14 year old male neutered pitbull with severe arthritis. He has a good appetite but pants heavily even after a brief walk and seems weak. Occasionally his hips give out and it takes some time before he can stand again. Most of the day he sleeps. How do I know whether to have him put down or die naturally? He seems to be declining and I don't want him to suffer. I do love him and want to do what is right. He also has great difficulty negotiating the many stairs in our house. Thanks for your insights

Im watching my friends dog and I think he just made a really odd and somewhat worrying sound and looked like he was heaving and about to throw up. Hes a about a ten week old labrador. Right now he seems to be acting fine. He got up ran outside and pooped then came inside and layed down. Im just worried he might have swallowed something because he tried to eat a penny earlier and chews on absolutely everything and tries to swallow it. Should I be concerned he might need to visit the vet?

A month ago we bought Pro plan food from a leading pet

A month ago we bought Pro plan food from a leading pet outlet store and put it in a container. We fed until almost gone and noticed a bunch of small moths emerging from the food container. Our largest boxer started a deep cough about a week before we noticed the moths. I did go back to the store and tell them. I bought a de-wormer and treat the dogs for worms. He still has the cough and he is swollen behind the elbows on the arm on his front legs. What can I treat the cough with? And do you know what is wrong?
