do dogs go away to die

Why does my dog do this? Vomiting, Howling, licking, limping, sleeping, not eating, etc. etc. What is the strange thing on my dog? How do you treat or diagnose a dog with this and that? Post here stuff you can't fit anywhere else in the "Dog Health Problems - Issues - Symptoms - Advice - Questions & Answers" Category. BUT REMEMBER: NOBODY HERE IS A VETERINARIAN!

It depends on the dog, its family, etc. Thats like asking if people die in their sleep...some do, some dont. It completely depends on the dog. It also depends on the dogs health conditions. A dog with bone cancer vs a dog with a brain tumor, the one with the brain tumor may be so confused that it doesnt know where it is and thinks that rather than going to be alone, that he is looking for his family.

I absolutely agree with Brad. There is no reason for a dog to be loose so that it could go off to die somewhere. No it does not NEED to go away to die if that is what you are asking?

They may occasionally try to distance themselves when they feel death is near. They don't want to be a burden to their pack... But no beloved furry member of a family should ever be allowed to go off somewhere alone to die. Give them space in the home if they wish to die at home but don't let them loose to go off and die.

precious little would set me crazy as much as taking a lost report for an ancient, deaf, blind arthritic dog! I really just wanted to reach through the phone & throttle the id-iot on the other end.

Why do people let these poor dogs outside? Oh, yes, I remember now - they never left the yard before!!!!

Dogs as with people, need extra care in their latter years - "letting" them outside loose does not qualify as CARE!
