[quoteicon author=”LABfan Derek”]My lovely lab Simba is being put to sleep at 14:00, he is 14 and so frail, I feel like the worst person in the world[/quoteicon]
I have yet to experience the sending of my Labrador to Rainbow Bridge. I can only imagine how hard that decision can be, but I know that there may be a chance that I would have to face it. I am sure LABfan Derek is not the only one that has felt the bite of the guilt bug for making the decision that it was the time.
Thoughts about your Labrador’s Life…
and if it is the time really can depend on you and the state of your Lab. At what point is it to early? Did you try everything that you could? Did you look at all your options?
On the same note, when is too long? Are they clearly suffering? Are You holding on because You are not ready?
So what do you do? Again it really depends on the circumstance. My personal opinion is that, if you have done everything humanly possible and the condition has not improved or will improve and you know they are frail and suffering; it might be time to say goodbye so your Labrador does not have to feel pain anymore.
