Why should I euthanize my pet?
It’s a very tough decision to make but your pet’s quality of life is a guiding principle in making such a choice. If no treatment or medical procedure can help improve your furry pal’s quality of life, it is usually a better choice to help save them from present and any future suffering and pain they might experience.
How do I evaluate my pet’s quality of life?
A veterinarian is the best resource to help you evaluate your pet’s quality of life. If your pet is in chronic pain and no medications or treatment options can help relieve the pain or help them lead a better life, it is often considered to be poor quality of life. The veterinarians make an evaluation based on present and future quality of life to help you make the decision.
Would my pet feel any pain?
No. Your pet is given a sedative before the medical euthanasia drug is injected. They feel no pain at all, except the slight pinch of the needle while undergoing the procedure.
