Customer Question
Hello, We have a 13.5 year...
Hello,
We have a 13.5 year old Tibetan Spaniel who urinates and defecates in her crate every night. She also barks for hours on end in the crate, drinks water really fast and throws it up. Our local vet has done every test seemingly imaginable and can't find anything physically wrong with the dog. She put the dog on Melatonin, Solliquin and Proin Chew Tabs 25 mg - all of which have done nothing and seem to have made the situation worse. After telling the the vet this stuff doesn't work and we are at our wits end with the messes, we brought the dog to put her down. The vet will not euthanize. Now the vet is putting the dog on Trazedone for a week. We've never been to a vet before who wouldn't listen to us and comply with our request. This is a vet we've known and been seeing regularly for 10 years. We feel the dog's life is further down hill from here and why are we keeping her alive? My real question is, what do we have to do to get a vet to euthanize the dog? Thank you!

I am very sorry to see that no one has reached out to you before now. I just came online and found that your question had not been addressed. How is your companion at this time? Did the vet tell you why they refused?
