Harald Martenstein: About an old, sick dog and the question of when it is time to say goodbye


There was a lot going on in the veterinary clinic on Sunday, a waiting room full of dogs. Ours can hardly breathe, the heart, it gasps for breath. Once again, a blood count was taken, he was X-rayed, given oxygen and a few injections, after which it temporarily improved. It cost 400 euros. You could have him put in a new heart valve for 20,000 euros, I won't do that. A specialist in Japan, said the veterinarian, should have the best success rate in this operation, many stars fly to Japan with their dogs. Dogs are getting older, like their humans, and some are even becoming demented. Then they can no longer find their way around the apartment and spend hours looking for their feeding bowl.
