3. Loss of Interest
When a dog nears the end of their lifespan, they can begin to lose interest in the world around them, and they may stop caring about the things they normally busied themselves with. Their favorite toys will gather dust, and they may no longer have the energy to jump up to greet you at the door, or wag their tail when you tease them with a favorite toy. This is because your dog is likely to feel more tired than usual, and it may also be painful for them to move around too much.
4. Social Detachment
Some dogs may become clingier when they near the end of their lifespan. However, most dogs seek out solitude and separate themselves from the family instead of seeking comfort. They may hide somewhere, or move to a secluded corner of your home, and seem way less social than usual. In fact, it isn’t uncommon for dogs to go under beds before they die and hide there.Next
