Saying goodbye is never easy

I just got off the phone with my mother, who has finally decided to say goodbye to her 17 year old girl, Sasha. The poor dear has been struggling for at least a year,  anxious most of the time, and having more “accidents” in the house. Not to mention, unable to stand while eating.

Are there treatments available to help improve Sasha’s life? I’m quite sure. But how do you decide how far do you go in seeking treatment? My parents have a hard enough time making ends meet, let alone affording vet bills in the thousands.

What do I think about my mom’s decision? Relieved and sad at the same time. It’s a tough spot to be in having to make this decision – one I hope to avoid. My 15+ year old girl is struggling and it breaks my heart. When do you say no more medication or treatments? Times like these I wish they could talk. :.(
