grieving dog

HI there

My dog name Jazz is going to be put to sleep today. I wanted to know if there is anything that I can do to make the grieving process better for my male dog. He already knows that something is going on. As he goes up to Jazz and kisses her and lays right beside her. Should I bring him to the vets today when I put jazz down. Should he see her died. or will it make him scared of the vet.

So sorry that you are losing your beloved companion.

I think the only person that can help you with this decision is the vet. I personally would not have my other pet with me because I do know that they can sense when an animal is ill or dying but I do not know how they react watching this happen.

Maybe there is a behaviouralist here that can answer this question.

Peace to you and Jazz.

I am so sorry to hear about your dog Jazz.

I went through this in January, and there is no easy way for anyone. However, I don't think it is a good idea to bring the male dog with you.

Please don't forget, that he will be picking up your vibes. You will be sad and he will know it.

The best thing that I have found is to concentrate on those that are here. Take him for a walk, spend more time with him and try to keep your spirits up. Your mood will affect your dog, they live in the now and don't feel sorry for themselves.

Good luck and my prayers are with you.

JAzz is gone as of 12:45

Jazz is gone. It was the worse thing that I have had to do in a long time. The worse thing is that I can't see her any more. I don't want to look at pictures of her. I want her. I had a hard time making the decision on which time or date to put her down. I just had to do it. When I got off of work this morning. She was very bad. I have to go to my daughter's award ceramony. Then I took her just to the vet. Then On the way Jazz start to look better.
I hope that this was the right thing to do. I haven't stopped crying. I feel myself pushing myself away from my other dog. As I'm scared to get hurt again. I love him don't get me wrong. I know that he will help me with my feeling. I think that I 'm going to take the advise of the last post. And take him for a walk,.... The other sad thing is that my brother's dog just ran away. She was the same age as Jazz.
