We were scheduling for a ct and had given him a few small dose steroid shots over the past week, one every 3 days to help with appetite because he had quit eating. Two days before he died, his breathing had become a little heavier never open mouthed though. The Dr had said even if ct confirmed cancer, he probably wouldnt be a candidate for chemo since it had probably spread to the lungs. I decided to go ahead and begin high dose steroids for cancer treatment in the hope of having some quality time with him. After 24 hrs on them, his breathing was more labored and I don’t know if it was from the illness or if the steroids could have caused it. Dr wanted to wait 24 more hrs to see if improvement so I had appt scheduled 48 hrs after starting the high dose steroids. That morning, he barked a few seconds at the door, then coughed a small drop of blood. I grabbed him to head toward the vet and within minutes he began to bleed from his nose and mouth. He died in my arms on the way. He seemed fine and 30 minutes later he was gone. I don’t know if it was his illness cancer?that caused this or if the steroids could have done something.

A crate is recommended in these circumstances in order to prevent destructive behaviour, as well as toys and treats that can keep them busy throughout the day. Leaving the television or the radio on can definitely keep them happy, as it provides them with the company of some human voices. Goldendoodles are known for being extremely healthy, as many of the negative traits can be eliminated from the cross breed. However, this doesn’t mean that they aren’t without their health problems. It can be difficult to determine which conditions they are most prone to, given that there is no breed standard for them, so it’s important to look out for any signs of illness and contact your veterinarian immediately. To reduce the chances of these conditions, always do some research to find a reputable breeder who invests the time and proper care of their dogs in order to ensure that you’re getting a healthy puppy.
