Sorry all new on here so unsure where to post. I have a female retriever named Isla. This year has been such a bad year for her one illness after another. Feb this year she caught the dealy silent disease pyometra and had 2 half litres of pus removed from uterus and full hysterectomy. Hospilised for 7 days and not until blood results came back day 7 did we think she would survive this result we waited for was the decision on surviving or being pts. She has some kidney damage and slight incontinence now. Last week she while out on run and playing with other dogs (friends dogs) a few of us all walk our dogs together. She decided not to join in which I must admit had been for a few days. On way home she began limping and tripping over front paw. Been to vet and now diagnosed with arthritis 3 knees and slight nerve damage on right front paw and right back paw. On metacam now and only allowed 3 x 10 min lead walk. Anyone else experienced this and what can be done to prolong life. Due back to vet Wednesday and really don't want her to be pts. Love her so much but don't want her in pain.
