has anyone had a senior dog with advanced heart disease and ivdd?
our 12 year old was diagnosed with advanced heart disease about 7 months ago and was travelling well on meds until 2 days ago she began to lose her ability to walk, and is currently still in the vets completely paralysed on the back end. vets suggest surgery with a 90% survival rate and a 95% success rate.
We are thinking the alternative of using a wheel chair and having her in 24/7 palative care with us to live out her last days with her heart condition. We want what is best for her and what will give her the best quality of life. She has had one operation in her younger years for her teeth and did not recover well from that, so we are not confident she will make it through this one and recovery with her heart condition.
