Seems each time tears me up worse than before.

We went thru a similar situation with our Jack Russell, she developed epilepsy and no matter what we tried, we just couldn't keep the epilepsy and seizures under control. We finally had to have her put down for her sake. The saddest part of this is the dog was terrified at the vet's office and the vet was very clinical and did nothing comfort the dog or my wife and I. So the last few moments of our dogs life were spent in terror. I regret it to this day.

I used a mobile vet after that and while still sad, it's a much more peaceful experience for the pet and the owners.

Good luck, it's always tough, but it's the right thing to do when the time comes.
