Yeah, looks like he's falling apart with cloudy eyes, a little bloat, bladder issues, and lesions.

I just looked it up. They live to 10-15 years so it's probably time to put it to sleep. Good luck with it.
already gone got back from the store with some extra meds to try an help prolong a little longer even if it was a year or two but i gotta say i think its been 12 years so gotta think me an my bro helped give a a decent life and he has had some good roadtrips 1300miles a few times all things must come to a end. .
