Here's a recent column by pet writer Christie Keith in the March 6 San Francisco Chronicle, her story of when her dog became sick and they couldn't find out what was wrong, and how he had a lot of procedures but they never figured it out and he was pts. She raises important issues here, no answers but food for thought.

Judy: Thanks for sharing. All of these issues are difficult ones and, as the article notes, the decisions we make are personal ones.

Thanks for posting this Judy. It's thought provoking - something to think about for if/when the situation arises.

Judy,
This article breaks my heart. We are going through so much right now with Mabel and her sleep apnea/seizures. I hate to see her suffer, but I don't want to give up too soon. This was a very timely artlicle for me...thank you.
