Hello Dr Kara
Thank you for your prompt response. I know what you are saying and I do agree that her quality of life is the most important thing. I think I just needed reassurance for an impartial viewpoint that I am doing the right thing by Ruby for her wellbeing. She was a rescue and has been in our home for 6 years had has been a real asset and such a sweet natured dog who will be greatly missed, especially by our other Shepherd Dax.
Once again thank you this had greatly helped with my decision as the regarding her chewing has not been explained to me. The vet said in all his years he had not experienced this in his surgery and it came as a great shock.
