Harry the rescue - cushings disease

Priscilla GaylePriscilla Gayle IrvingPosts: 1Member
We have been fighting this disease for 6 months and some days are good; some are bad.  My dilemma is that the longer this goes one, Harry changes in body form and temperament.  He sleeps a lot now, pants a lot when awake, and is hungry all the time - all part of the disease.  This is an 18 -24 month cycle and of course, the end is worse for him other than the loss and tears us as pet parents have to experience. I know we can shorten the time by putting him down at the vet when we get to that point, but was wondering if anyone had experienced at 'in-home'euthanasia or done it themselves.  I just don't want to take him to vet office and 'drop' him off!  Any advice recommendations would be appreciated

    Many vets will do it at home.  We have been fortunate enough to not have to choose.   If possible do it in a place that he loves.
