Mickey

Our dog Mickey has Cushing syndrome. It is usually caused by a tumor. It causes the hair to fall out and the skin to become infected. And the medication to treat it is expensive. Jürgen and Nicole took him to the vet to talk about it. They bought medication for a month, but we may need to have him put to sleep in the coming months. He is pushing 14 years old. That is pretty old for a dog. I find it unethical to pay thousands of dollars to keep an old dog alive. Sounds like an argument for Euthanasia? I love him very much, but it is time to prepare for a goodbye.
