Dogs may show a variety of signs when they are nearing the end of their life. It is important to be aware of these signs so you can provide comfort and support during this difficult time.
One of the most common signs that a dog is dying is a loss of appetite. They may stop eating altogether or only eat small amounts of food.
Another common sign is lethargy or weakness. Your dog may sleep more than usual or have difficulty getting up and moving around.
Dogs who are dying often lose weight rapidly. This is because they are not eating or drinking as much as they used to.
Dogs who are dying may experience changes in their breathing. They may breathe faster or slower than usual, or they may have difficulty breathing.
Dogs who are dying may become confused and disoriented. They may wander around aimlessly or have difficulty finding their way home.
Dogs who are dying may experience pain. This may be due to their illness or to the side effects of their medication.
