Well, as much as i was against it last week, im wondering it would be best now. She is a 14 year old cocker and has had a completely healthy life. but for whatever reason, about 2 weeks ago, she wouldnt want to walk/put weight on her right rear leg. we decided to wait a few days and c what happens. well, a day went by and everything was ok. she was still eating and what not but she still didnt want to put any weight on it, but she would if she had 2. and she would still eat and what not like normal. well, as of 2 days ago, she just hit rock bottom. she has basically lost all control of her bowel (sp?) movement, just wont eat *even tried 2 tempt her with KFC and McD's frys* and nothen. there is blood in her stool and now when my mom or i get home, she just lays in her bed and barey acknowledges we r ome (normally she would be clawing at the front door the sec she hear us and jumping up and down, and even a few weeks ago when she didnt want to put weight on her right rear leg, she would atleast make an effort to get up and put weight on her leg to walk over to where we were). I have an appointment tomorrow at 11am to have her see a vet. I have been told she could have hip dysplasia, but of course they would need x-rays ($151, on top of the $50 normal vet visit). my mom called another vet that she always took her dog to, and they basically said any place is gonna need 2 run x-rays and what not and IF she needs surgery, because of her age, they doubt she will live thru it, let alone it wil lbe alteast $500-700 before the surgery 2 fine anything out. now, dont get me wrong, price is no object. shes been my best friend and ill do anything for her. but ive read online from alot of websites, to make a list of 10 things she loved to do, and when she cant do those 10 things anymore, its time. and.. well.. as of a few days ago, that list was up. she is not in any pain, she has never wimpered or cried or anything to indecate shes in pain, so i dont know what to do.
