cheyenne is now 15 year goldendoodle . Until recently was a therapy/service dog and loved every minute of it. Last Year he showed a weakness in his hind end. difficulty getting up, etc. had a CT which showed problems with spine and arthritis . He is on meloxidyl, amantldine, gabapentin and I have jus started CBD which seems to help...a bit he was on thyroid but vet & I decided to stop it. His weight has also dropped to 67 pounds. originally he was 98 losing his fur I realize he is very old for a big dog but he eats, drinks and does his duties very well. It breaks my heart to see him try to sit and then get up no more stairs . I do believe he is also losing his sight and he no longer answers to my calls...hearing problem too, When he coms to me and looks into eyes I swear he is telling me he does not feel well then he goes and sleeps.
We contine to give his lots of TLC and a few very short walks when he can beginning to wonder if it is fair to him to let him continue on.
