I know I'm a silent member sorry bout that. Mutts mom here I'm going threw a crazy bad time and being forced to move two hours away to my moms very small place. My problem is this: Mutts is now 15 and has bad heart bad lungs and arthritis in her spine which is making her back legs weak so she tends to slip easy.My vet and me have tried everything and still no clue on whats wrong with her besides the arthritis in the spine. She cant be sedated due to her age and freaks if forced to lay down for xrays. Shes had three near death experiences due to her lungs/heart. Lately its getting worse she trys to play and will bounce like a kangaroo for a few minutes but has to stop to hack up a lung then stands there frozen trying to breath scares the crap outa me. She freaks when in a car drools hyperventilates. I don't think she can survive the two hour drive down the mountain to my moms place she may just collapse or have a stroke and in the middle of no where turny mountain road that would be a very bad thing. I'm thinking of just havening her put down and cremated it sucks but I'm think its best for her shes such a health mess I don't think her body can handle the drive her spirit is there but her bod is starting to just give up shes a typical determined greyhound tho and don't want to stop going she scares me when she gets in I'm goona run amok mode it usaly ends with her nearly hacking up a lung and me hoping to god she dont fall over dead. Any tips prayers great appreciated any one have to deal with this before? I love her and shes been with me threw junior high and alot of bad things and I hate this but I think it may be best for her.
Oh wow. I don't really have a lot of advice except to ask if you've considered crating her during this trip. Perhaps the stress of this would be too much, but I'd hate for you to jump automatically to euthanasia.
