Having had dogs and other pets all my life, my simple rule of thumb on when to have them put down is when their bodily function fails, for example their ability to pass urine/stool, or unable to eat or move around, usually a combination of a few of them, its time to end their suffering especially when Vets say there is nothing they can do to "cure" the situation.

If this sounds a little dehumanizing, i remind myself that it is an animal and whose lifspan is well documented, so why prolong their suffering by getting all kinds of booster jabs, artificail iron lungs to keep it breathing etc?

Cherish the happy times and move on.
