That depends on the breed and the dog's lifestyle. Small dogs ususally live longer, but a big, well vetted and well fed, happy dog can live past 15 - 18. Horses can live to be 40!

But if you pet is suffering, arrange to put it to sleep. Put it's head in your lap, your hand on it's heart and keep your hand there until it stops beating. Then you cry and know it's chasing rabbits in heaven and waiting for you to join in.

Actually, I don't know about dogs, but the best, primo vet clinic for horse's eyes is in Ohio.
