I have an 11 year old Shih Tzu and he developed Coushings

I have an 11 year old Shih Tzu and he developed Coushings Disease a couple of years ago, then a Mass in his chest, Kidney Disease and High BP about 6 months ago. Also, a mass in his bladder and an enlarged Prostrate. He now seems to be having trouble seeing maybe due to Cateracts. He was doing ok for some time giving him SubQ fluids and medication also and appetite stimulant and an anti nausea med. Though he has been eating less and less and is very skinny. Since Wed he really has hardly eating, a couple bites of fruit or ice cream and doesn't want to move. I carry him every where now. He still wants to be with me and see his friends and has some spark and quality of life. My question is, when do I know when it's his time? I don't want him to suffer, even if I can't bear to let him go. But I don't want to do that too soon either, when he still has some life in him. I don't know what to do. My Vet says she doesn't tell people to put their animals down. I would appreciate your thoughts and any advice on this. Thank you very much. JanerJA: OK.

My 12 year old mini doxie has bloodshot eyes, tarry stools,

My 12 year old mini doxie has bloodshot eyes, tarry stools, has vomited what looks like fresh blood, extremely lethargic, can hardly walk, very weak, has lost a lot of weight since Saturday, and won't eat or hardly drink water. We live in a very rural area with no vet. Any suggestions as to what is the cause?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: No, I don't think so. Other than being older and slower, she has been active and healthy (but for some extruding stomach tumors) up until Saturday. Then she started going downhill fast. We went on a walk Saturday that she was excited about. She chewed on some strawberrries and watermelon on Saturday but all my research shows these fruits aren't poisonous.

Hi, Dr. Peter. How are you?? My question today does not necessarily pertain to MY babies - but my uninvited extra guest this summer. The possum.I have a "Have a Heart" cage. Is there anything I can bait it with which will NOT encourage all of the other critters to come?? I have rabbits, squirrels, and the occasional raccoon. I don't want EVERYTHING in the yard.Thank you!!
