We can only do our best taking advice from vet and weighing up quality of life. We can only give best chance in the moment and that's what you did. Hindsight and the experience it gives is valuable however not always true in every situation so all we can do is our best call xx

That's right - I have wished that I hadn't put Autumn through surgery for a twisted gut and Jim for a pedunculated lipoma but hindsight is wonderful and we can only do our best. If you had gone for it before you would still be wondering if you did the right thing, as would I with my two. Try to enjoy your time with your mare - you will know when the time has come to show her that final kindness. xx

Thanks Ari and garnet, it can be so hard as to know when to call it a day sometimes. My girl seems happy enough on the higher dose Danilon and vet says I can up it at times like farrier coming, she nearly took his head off last week when he lifted her worst leg up I will not let her suffer so once she starts getting unhappy on the extra dose it will be time to say our goodbyes #128577;

Your decision is harder than mine. My lady was 30.5 sound bless her but not recovering from a virus / bacterial infection or whatever that put her off food and drained her strength = no quality of life for my food loving kind but lunatic ginger Crabbet lady. Vets and I tried all reasonable effort; she was rapidly loosing what weight I had got on her over summer for the winter and no improvement in quality of life. Two weeks from 100% fit oldie then vet care to decision made. That's all we can do; our best xxxx
