    You are a strong individual to make that decision for Annie and not think of yourself. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    I am so sorry to hear this, I could not even imagine what you are going through right now. This makes me so sad for you and your family. I wish there was something else that could be done, but if she is in pain then you know what is best for sweet Annie. I will be thinking about you, Annie and your family today.

    @karenben I am so sorry and shocked and numb right now, I cannot even imagine what you are feeling and I know you are wanting to do what is best for Annie.

    I know you do not like steroids nor do I, but I am wondering if you could try them first?

    Very sad and I feel so sorry for you, Read it earlier and didn't even know what to say. I couldn't imagine being in your shoes right now. Bless you and hope for the strength you need to work through this.

    Thanks for your messages they give me strength,steroids for the rest of her life are not an option ,I'm only prolonging the inevitable,the vet said there is a possibility that she's allergic to herself now ,mmy 20 yr old son broke his heart but he knows what Annie suffers listening to her through the night scratching,she went through a phase of slight itching but to be honest there has only been 1week when she's been itch free,in the last 14 months,as the vet said she's very sick,though looking at her face she's the picture of health ,no stains on her face,I'm still trying to get my head round it,karen

    This makes me want to cry just reading it...especially since I am dealing with bad allergies in my baby right now too. Not to the extent you are but I suppose it's always a possibility since Tonka is only 11 months old. This breaks my heart and I am sending prayers your way! I have to tag along with @Davidh and ask if there is any possible way to consult with another vet or specialist or to at least try low doses of steroids intermittently to help with discomfort. Or have you heard of the medicine called Atopica (cyclosporine) that can help dogs with allergies that are severe as well and doesn't have the side effects of steroids. I am sure you have considered every possibility already and tried everything possible and that this is a last resort for you, but just thought I would ask. I know that you would not come to this difficult decision without having tried everything first. I commend you for being so strong. I just wish so much that there were a different answer or solution for you!!!

    Have you consulted with any vets in the US? I know our methods of veterinary medicine might be a little different and perhaps provide some new options? I am probably totally reaching...I just feel so bad for you and Annie and hate to see you both have to go through this. Especially if she looks so healthy...that's got to count for something, right? Tonka looks awful when he is suffering from his allergies.
