My poor dog Katie is dying of cancer, there's nothing I can do, I'll miss her, she did a lot, she won many dog shows..

I've been crying because I love her, she's shaking and not eating nor drinking, is it time to put her down, or give her as much love until its her time?

It's up to you, really. It sounds like it would be a mercy at this point if she's not eating or drinking.

So sorry:( It would be a kindness to let your pet pass in peace. You would be doing the humane thing to painlessly put her down. Suffering is no quality of life and she has had a good life with good memories for you.
Once you do this..and you can stay with her at the Vets office, you will need to grieve for a while, but you will need to keep busy to stay healthy yourself. Losing a pet is traumatic and you will need to get back to life after a short grieving period. God bless.

I faced this decision recently. It sounds like it is time to say goodbye. When we have pets, they look to us for everything they need, and sometimes what they need hurts us but is the best choice for them. Sometimes it means we have to relieve their suffering. If you love her as much as you say, do you really want her torment to continue? Because that is exactly what it is. Torment.

I am so sorry and we had to put my dog down because our neighbors were lying about what happened so I feel your pain of loosing something that has been in your life for so long, but I think the right thing to do is just give her/him as much love as you can and just wait until the time comes. :)

A vet will know if you need to stop her suffering. Take her to your vet. If he says she is not going to make it. Don't make her suffer. However this will be one of the hardest things you do , I suggest you stay with her if you have to let them put her down. I did with my little chiwawa I cried so hard but she knew I was there all the way to the end . I really feel for you. Just remember too LOVE NEVET DIES IT LASTS FOREVER.

If you put her down, she will be in a better place and will never forget you. Her body died, but not her spirit. She loves you more than anything. God Bless <3
