Suffering is a very subjective thing. If he’s eating etc and happy is pain really suffering? Maybe some metamucil added to his meals will make pooing easier? Dunno I live with a lot of pain personally and I would hate to think if I were an animal someone might consider that reason to end my life. Despite the pain I have a lot of joy. You might also be able to give him something like doggy tylenol if its benign to help him?

Our dog has bladder cancer. When they found it, the vet gave her 2 months to live. Its been 5 and her symptoms haven’t changed. She is uncomfortable when she pees, but is otherwise her happy, playful self.  We have pain meds for her if she seems like she’s in pain and steroids to reduce inflammation.  As long as you know your dog and would be perceptive to any changes in her behavior or attitude that would indicate he was in pain, just enjoy the time you have.  So sorry that the news wasn’t good 🙁    The great thing about being a dog though, is that he doesn’t have to go through all of the worrying and sadness that comes with being sick. 

 

This made us laugh AND cry when considering our pup’s current situation:

I second the option of steroids.
