Mom decided her little dog was so sick she had to be put down. The dog has been very uncomfortable for a long time, but mom just couldn't let go. Mom is been diagnosed with dementia, has delusions and is paranoid. She is also very uncomfortable with back and stomach problems.
Now that the companion she doted for years is gone, I expect depression. Does anyone else have experience with this? We are somewhat concerned this could put her in a downward spiral.
