Knowing when the time is right to say goodbye is incredibly difficult. One of the most important things to consider is your pet’s quality of life. You know your companion better than anyone else, so you’ll be able to recognize when they are no longer able to enjoy things they once took pleasure in and when their overall love of life has diminished.
Making the decision to have a pet put to sleep is heartbreaking and is often accompanied by feelings of uncertainty and guilt. While there is no “perfect” time to choose euthanasia, there are several signs that likely indicate that your pet’s quality of life has diminished significantly. Lack of interest in food or water, significant weight loss, or the inability to stand, walk, or go to the bathroom on their own could all serve as signs that the time has come. As your pet nears the end of their life, they may also have trouble breathing, cry out or whimper in pain, or hide from you and your other family members.
