ABOUT EUTHANASIA
« on: October 14, 2007, 06:35:57 PM »
Euthanasia translates as "gentle death". In regards to releasing your pet's pain, euthanasia is given as a merciful, peaceful rest after you, the responsible human, has decided it is time to let go. Euthanasia is generally administered by an overdose of barbiturates, through an intravenous catheter, or by standard injection (like a vaccine), causing the heart to stop painlessly. This is the most humane gift you can give your pet when their time has come.


 The assistants will bring you and your pet to a private room for a while. Take this time to be with your pet, to say good-bye, anything you want. This is your time.

When you are ready, a veterinarian will enter and inject the euthanasia drug. You will feel your dog relax, and maybe sigh, and it will be over very quickly.

Do not be alarmed by any nerve jumps, or if you hear your dog "gasp"; it is just air leaving the lungs. Your dog's eyes will not close.

Remember that this is ultimately the greatest gift you can give your dog : Peace
