    you could try pig pheromone, the stuff they spray in the pigs face to get her receptive before artificial insemination. Its known to stop some dogs from barking. Also you can DAP collars that help some skittish dogs that bark too much.

    A DAP collar would be the best thing. Not seen one in Thailand.

    For those (like me) who have no idea what a DAP collar is, here is a definition from Wiki :

    Dog Appeasing Pheromone (DAP) is a chemical developed to calm dogs suffering from separation anxiety disorder, astraphobia (fear of thunder and lightning), fear of fireworks, or those with excessive barking problems.
    The chemical is a synthetic analogue of a hormone produced by nursing canine mothers that is seen as 'promoting calm and secure behaviour and in establishing a bond with the mother.'[1]

    Dog appeasing pheromone - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A DAP collar is a collar that release DAP. It seems it also exists electric DAP diffusers.
    The things we regret most is the things we didn't do

    Just out of interest, are both Misskitt and Hazz american by any chance? Dog Valium and a chemical pheromone dispenser? Bloomin' heck - the poor lad is lonely and in pain and the "best thing" is to dope him up?

    OP - before you try the chemical sedation methods to shut your dog up, how about doing a different route?



    1) Sliding about puts undue stress and pressure on already painful joints, so pop on some slippers as in the picture to give him friction.
    2) Fish Oil, and even an anti inflammatory after his morning dinner (human ones like voltaren will be fine - 25mg) - it is slow release so will give relief throughout the day and crucially will free him up to attempt to climb the stairs.
    3) Some scraps of carpet applied to the stairs to give him more grip when he tries to climb them. If they are open backed stairs, cover the back with cloth - they can get scared with open backed stairs. If he can walk for a kilometer twice a day, he can get up the stairs as well. Just do it as soon as he walks in though as his joints are moving, and chugging up the stairs would be easier than when he has relaxed and got stiff again.

    For when he is downstairs, a radio playing in the back ground, ideally with speaking rather than music, will keep him interested. Items of clothing / beeding with your smell on it near to his bed will make him feel more secure as well (a laundry basket with your bed linen in it etc).

    Dogs typically poop 30-60 minutes after they eat (remember this for your house training thread by the way) so you know when he will poop, so after his morning dump, haul him up the stairs. I dare say he has been a faithful mutt all his life, so don't abandon him now because I doubt he abandoned you.

    Good luck with finding anti-slip slippers and getting the dog to wear them if you do. A harness for the back end of dogs, to use for support, are also available in the West.
    Agreed about carpet on the stairs and fish oil.

    However, if the old dog has senile dementia, as he very well may have, "drugging" him with pheromones is the kindest thing to do, even with the other contraptions.

    We use an old towel passed under is belly to help him stand up.

    For supplement, we give him Arthripet

    For the stair, we prefer he doesn't take them, we are too scare he fell and break a leg.

    I just looked at the Composure dog treats I have. They contain colostrum (from mothers milk) and l-theanine, neither are considered drugs.

    Makes me smile to think how that looks.

    I've cut an old leather satchel down the sides and slip it under my old girl's belly to lift her. Sometimes she can go on her own, other times can't get her arthritic back legs going at all.

    Mine has fish oil and meloxicam as well as the supplement treats.

    This picture was taken about two years ago. He was already 13 y.o., looks good for his age :-)

    I made a mistake, not toilet, towel. But I guess you already corrected by yourself.

You are trying to find solutions and if I was in your position I would be doing the same. But is there a solution or an inevitability here ? only you can decide. I would not like too be in your shoes I look at our dogs and know that some day I will be pondering what is the best thing to do. My thoughts are with you.

    You might try taking him to a pond or some such body of water. Good therapy relief for the olde guy, and your buddy too - he's a sweetheart!

    I've lost two Rott female sisters, each at 11, over the past three years. Prinz, the older male at 11, is in the initial suffering stages of arthritis. The daughter Damn and son Benz are just 5 and 6 respectively.
