Answering these questions may help as you walk your pet through this last stage.

Is my pet happy?

Is pain well controlled on most days?

Have we gone as far as we can and should with testing? Would knowing more provide more treatment options or help make a decision?

Is this condition treatable? Have we done all we can?

When I remember my pet as a healthy adult, do I still see many of the same characteristics?

If my pet could choose to keep fighting or rest, which would they choose?

Does our family need more time to make the decision? If so, can we maintain comfort?

Are most days mostly good?
