I think this is probably one of those things where you just have to keep it in the back of your mind and let your heart make the decision while you are busy with other things. It shows how loving you are to your dogs that you are thinking about the idea. Maybe it would help to try to picture it in detail. For example, is Mocha in a vet ICU cage? On the top row or bottom row? Is Mocha in the same cage every time you visit? What other dogs are next to Mocha, and will Jason be distracted by them? Is Jason small enough to hold in your arms? At the same time, I imagine the dog that is sick would really value a visit by the owner more than anything. Perhaps some reassuring words to Jason will do as much as anything, but I don't know.
I once found a dog that had been hit by a car and it was already gone. I went to the owner's house to tell him, and the other dog who I always saw in the yard with the dog that had passed away, was there. As I started telling the owner about his dog found by the road, I could see the other dog looking at me stricken, with a look in his eyes like he already knew his brother was gone, and I was only there confirming to the owner what this dog already knew. I don't know, but either way I believe you will make the best decision for your family.
