Definitely a tough decision. My 17 year old boy started having problems walking about eight months ago. I took him to the vet in May and it was determined he had degenerative myelopathy, which is the nerves around the spine dying. The vet said it wasn't painful for him, but lately he has been falling a lot, and I know that has to hurt sometimes. He's determined and keeps going. If I try to help him at any time he tries to bite me. My days off are the worst, since he follows me everywhere I go. Every time I think today is the last day, he's usually doing better by tomorrow. The vet quoted me cremation services with four options ranging from $200 to $315 depending on what I wanted to do. I could even have him euthanized and take him home to bury him in the yard he has roamed his whole life.
I'm not looking forward to the day I have to take him in, and I'm not sure I can be there when he passes. Good luck on your decision.
