Hello Friends, Our cockapoo is approximately 18 years old and has been a wonderful pet. She was a stray found wandering along a local interstate highway. We adopted her and she has been our loyal pet now for seventeen years. Her name is Tannie Rose. Tannie is having some health concerns mostly due to her age, stage 2 kidney disease, caratacts, arthritis hearing loss and what seems to be senility. We are wanting to keep her a comfortable as possible. She really doesn't want to be cuddled and doesn't want to be groomed anymore. I'm sure she has a lot of joint pain. I'm currently working with our Vet who is trying to help us with her physical conditions, but I'm just at a loss as to what we can do for her emotionally. She seems so nervous and anxious. We are wondering if there are any pet owners who have experienced an aging dog and would have any advice as to what we can do to help her. Thank you.
