Diabetes

Q Stephanie asks:

Hamish is 12 years old and has had diabetes for a year. In resent months he has not been able to control his bladder and bowels at night time sometimes. I have always said he must go when this happens; do you think I'm right as it's such a hard decision to make?

Q Our vet says: It is never easy to decide when is the right time to say goodbye to a loved pet. It sounds as if you are a responsible owner and are trying hard to get the balance right. As a vet (especially one who has never met either you or Hamish) it is always difficult to advise on when is the right time to let go. However I find that when the owners of a pet think that the time has come they are almost always right. If you feel that the time to say goodbye is now then rely on your own judgment and go and speak to your local vet about it, they will almost certainly be sympathetic and helpful at this difficult and sad time.
