Default Max isn't doing good :(

Max my English mastiff is the ripe old age of 10 years old is not doing so well his hips are getting bad he's walking funny and having a hard time getting up from a laying position he's not in any pain but we're starting to prepare for the day he has to get PTS we lost Lexus a few months ago his life long companion. Baby-Love goes down to the family room and sleeps with max at night now instead of in my bed I think she senses something wrong.



just needed to vent

I'm sorry to hear that he is having trouble. He is a very handsome boy. Hugs to you both.

Does he take medication.? We gave our 13 yr old shepherd glucosamine and Meloxycam, and then steroids the last fewmonths of her life. We kept her comfortable as long as we could.

Very sorry to hear your Max isn't feeling well. It can be so hard for large breed dogs where their hips are concerned when they get older. Love that last pic you posted. Just precious. I am sure not only does Baby-Love sense Max might not feel well, but that he might be lonely to.

No medication it's new onset I think we're just gonna keep him comfortable if he needs pain
Meds then of course well bring him in I knew it wouldn't be long after one went the other would go they were inseparable he was so depressed when she was gone and developed separation anxiety became afraid of thunder which he nerve was his whole life same with fire works all of a sudden has a fear he's such a lazy laid back dog so friendly and quiet doesn't bark or anyhing puts up with the chis it's gonna be strange only having small dogs around.very smart and well behaved dog its been a pleasure spoiling him.

Poor guy. Our miniature schnauzer had really bad arthritis and pinched nerves towards the end, and we put him on something called Recovery and it helped so much! In addition to pain meds, it really improved his quality of life. Enjoy your time with him. He's so lucky to have someone that cares about him so much in his retirement.

Poor guy, I do think he is missing Lexus, animals do grieve much like humans do.
Baby is so smart to be in tune to him! she surely senses he needs that extra company/love right now.
Dogs are so sweet.. people suck! LOL

Oh that is sad,i know how hard it gets for oldies my sheltie is nearly 15,has trouble getting up sometimes,going blind now going for long walks is out now.As you say as long as they're not in pain and take life at a slower pace with lots of TLC ,they can't ask for anymore and i don't think you can do much more for them.My friends old dog did well on Metacam
