15 year old shitzu is basically blind and almost deaf, sleeps most of the time and when not...
sleeping is constantly biting and scratching herself.she still eats and goes out to dO her thing. She has to go out a lot more and will go in the house if no one is home to let her out. She is not in any pain but can't really do anything without getting exhuasted can hardly make it up stairs or go for a walk. Should we put her to rest before she really starts to suffer?
Have you seen your vet and asked for their advice. If the condition is purely age related then your vet will give you a good indication of how much suffering your dog is in. Then it will be down to you to decide if it is time to let her rest.
I hope that helps
This is solely your decision to make. No one can tell you what is right or wrong..

What do you feel in your gut? Do you feel it is time? Putting an animal to sleep in a humane way is the final act of love that you can do for your pet.
