    English Bulldog who is 8 years old, been having seizures for the past 9 months off and on that got worse. I suspect brain tumor since he has gone downhill, growls at me and last friday attempted a bite which nipped my face luckily missing my eye.
    Anyway been to the vet back and forth and put him on phenobarbital for the seizures. Once they are on this med I guess its for a lifetime, he is really fucked up stammering, pacing etc but heard that's to subside after a while. He has eye issues now and might be an ulcer. He bit me friday, growls and pisses everywhere now. I'm forced to crate a never been crated dog.

    I am taking him in at 5 pm and think this is it. I was going to do it 2 weeks ago but gave another shot. I have lost my dog months ago, and it sucks that this is not him (growling, pissy, unhappy). I have 2 little kids one who's 3 months old and another dog that's supposed to go anytime due to cancer.

    Am I right that maybe its time? I am tired... I suppose the vet will want to try eye treatments again but I'm tired and he looks like he wants to take a sleep.

    I get set on putting him down then the 5% kicks in and he seems somewhat ok. But I know its not, its a mind fuck.

    That sucks man. It's always hard near the end. THe pacing might be him trying to ward off the seziors. That seems to work for people anyway.



    phenobarbital is good shit. please send me some. j/k (not really)

    Vets are notorious for bleeding pet owners, when they are faced with these decisions....be careful

    go with your gut

    you know what's right

    ya, the vet will want to treat the eyes, on a chance, just maybe it might work, but probably not, meanwhile his whole life has turned to shit....vets are money grubbing whores, they're used to bleeding the old grannies dry with their pets but suck at actual triage. its funny when they try to pull their shit on a normal person.

    Synch, sorry to hear about your bully as obviously I have a soft spot for them. Whatever you decide to do, I'm sure you and the dog had a great life together. Keep us posted.
