How long have you taken care of your pet?

I have a dog which I took care for 13 long years before he became sickly and died :( they say its due to old age. His age then is equivalent to 91 in humans. Am I right its times 7?

Hello there! I have 3 cats,& 3 dogs. Mystic she is my oldest, she'll be 12 in July she has arthritis really bad and has to take medicine everyday twice a day. She only has 2 good legs. The front one is frozen with arthritis and doesnt bend. And the rear one has a ripped ligament in it. She has to have surgey for it, but I dont have the money right now and it may be awhile before I do. The surgery is like $500.00 and I was worried that the pain was so unbearable for her that I would have to put her to sleep. But the vet said that she would be okay as long as she had her pain meds. So, I understand about old "people". I am really sorry for your loss.
