Too Old. Too Fast.My dog turned 9 back at the start of September and it seems everything is going down hill now.
She has just finished some sort of injection to keep the arthritis at bay and now has some horrible stinky powder to go on her dinner as well as just starting hormone replacement therapy for incontinence. She's spayed which tends to deprive older female dogs of estrogen which they need for control.
I'm just so sick of hearing "Because of her age."
This is my baby we're talking about. The one thing to have truly 'had my back.' I don't want to hear about her age. I don't want to think she is getting old. This dog is gonna live forever DAMMIT!
This is a dog that only had to go to the vet for something stupid like spraining her toe or poking her head where it didn't belong before now.
It's horrifying to think she's nearing the end.
It's not fair.
