None of us are ever ready to say good-bye to our loyal, furry friends. For most, dogs become a part of one’s family and losing one is paramount to losing a beloved relative far too soon.
First, however, there are a few key symptoms and behaviors to keep any eye out for that are your dog’s way of letting you know their time is coming.
10. Balance Issues
If you notice that your dog, who normally is light on his feet and able to walk around without issues, is beginning to stumble more or is having a more difficult time moving about, there is a possibility that they are losing their sense of coordination.
Balance issues can stem from an underlying disease or other impairment that is a sign they may be dying. However, this symptom is also indicative of a possible ear infection or other balance-affecting condition.
If you are in any doubt, take your dog to the vet to make sure that he or she is not suffering.
