Vets advice dog owners not leave them and provide as much love and comfort as they can during euthanasia

That is too difficult putting a dog down. They may be suffering from chronic medical issues, disease, or injury that makes it nearly impossible for the animal to have a good quality of life.

No one deserves to be in pain every day, and sometimes, euthanasia is th only way.

Often though, someone will take a dog in to be euthanized, say their goodbyes, and leave before the dog is put to sleep. They leave the dog all alone in their final moments.

For the pets it is heartbreaking when their owners leave them all alone. Thats why vet employees beg pet owners to stay with their pets while they’re being euthanized.

Vet employees “Dogs already don’t like the vet, they’re confused, they’re scared, they’re sad and they’re looking for YOU when they take their last breath.”

She said that they try “to provide them as much love and comfort as they can,” but nothing can replace the love of their owner.

Anothe vet emploee wrote: “Today a lady dropped off her 13 year old dog to be put to sleep after I told her we didn’t have a vet in clinic as she was on farm calls all day, she insisted on leaving her there at 9am, knowing that our vet wouldn’t be back until well after 6pm. She was too busy to bring her back later, so she left her sweet girl to be alone all day before dying.”

The vet employee took the dog for a small walk and bought her a cheeseburger and a donut for her last meal. But the dogs continued to look for their owners. The employee kissed the dog and told her she was a good girl, but the dogs know what’s happening, the feel everything.

That is really difficult, but owners must remember, that for pets it can be more difficut.
