My family didn't want to spend money to put down pets... so the ones I had as a kid died at home...   
   
Seeing them one day... not moving...   
   
Each time I hoped they were just sleeping... but they weren't.

my family once took in a stray, and one day one of our dogs (great dane mix) picked it up by the neck and shook it. i was like 4 and scared ******** so i ran away, but i did see the stray dog limping with blood running down his stomach onto the ground. we didn't have enough money to take him to a vet, so my dad loaded him up in the truck. we drove to this nearby spillway and we stayed in the truck while my dad carried the dog far away and shot him

i've had a lot of pets, but it hurts every time when they're gone

It's hard even if you put them down. (long story) I had a cat who was 19, sweetest cat I've ever met, he just chilled when you wanted to cuddle and played when you wanted to play. He became diabetic and started having seizures, so we took him to the vet and discovered that his kidneys were failing and had a bad bladder infection. The vet told us we could keep him alive for another year if we took super careful time feeding him right and giving him shots.
My step mom decided we couldn't handle it, and to me he looked so happy and calm, not a care in the world while we sat there discussing his death, and then I looked into his eyes as the light went out. I thought he'd look like he was sleeping, but instead his mouth was just hanging there with his tongue hanging out and his eyes open. It was the worst experience ever. I think it'd be easier if you found them at home where they're comfortable instead. I felt like I took his life away unnaturally and it really messed me up.

I wasn't crying for awhile. I thought it was sad, sure, but then it got to the line "Even though the tumor grew so big" I broke down and sobbed for a minute.

I just had to put down my dog a couple months ago from cancer, he had a huge tumor that we didn't find out about until it Warning: Graphic burst and ruptured his colon, causing his last day to be filled with him vomiting and crying in pain was too late. We put him down 24 hours after it happened.

Pic related, was him back in December (2013). He has cancer in these photos and we just didn't know it. We put him down this last February.

If he has a tumor, but isn't in pain from it, and is clearly so happy with life.......why would you kill that dog? It seems a little sick to put a dog down that looks so content with life, and then try to put sad words from it's perspective like it was expecting this the whole time and at peace with it.

My childhood dog had a brain tumor. Most of the time he was happy and pain free, but the tumor would grow and give him seizures. He would pee himself and hurt himself on accident. Our vet told us we could either put him down while he was able to move or we could wait until it got worse. Before we could decided he had another seizure and lost the ability to walk or eat. Some times i think we should have put him down sooner. So he didnt have to go through so much pain.

I've been wondering about that since I saw this morning. That dog has absolutely no idea what's coming and is probably wondering why everyone's going such nice things for him out of the blue. Well no really because dogs don't really wonder things like that. But you get my meaning. And they're putting words in his mouth like he's come to terms with the fact that he's going to die that day. What kind of sick *****...that's what's really sad about this content.

No it isn't really nice for the only one to not know what's coming is the dog that it's coming to. But what would be worse is the dog not being put down, and the last thing it does is steal a bag of food or something silly and be told off for it, then die unexpectedly. Having the last words uttered to him being "bad dog" or something

I don't know where the blog is, but someone asked the owner questions, Turns out the poor doggie had a tumor growing on his side where his leg is missing. It's also the reason it's missing. But the tumor was getting so big that it was separating his ribs and putting pressure on his lung and other insides. They put him down before it would cause him horrible pain.

I see where you are coming from, I am more interested in how a vet was able to take lethal poisons to a public(or private) area and use it on a living animal without some kind of oversight.

I imagine someone, somewhere in charge saying "No, you can not take this Potassium Chloride to some random persons house and use it on a random animal outside controlled conditions with children running around."

Not saying it didn't happen, I just wonder how and why it was done that way without someone asking questions.

I'm guessing small down. You know the type? Everyone knows each other, trusts each other, etc. The local vet is probably a very well respected lady, who could make such a call without anyone fussing about it.

Where I live this is a very common thing. People want their pets to be comfortable when they die, so the vet will come to your house. Much better than stressing out a sick pet by bringing them to the vet's office.

Potassium Chloride is just a form of fluids. Vets use Pentobarbitone to put animals down. And Vets do house calls all the time people aren't usually stupid enough to let uncontrollable kids near something like that lol. I haven't heard of a Vet going to a park to euthanize an animal before... But if it's a place the animal will feel comfortable and the owners want it there and obv the Vet doesn't think it's too busy/risky, then I don't see why nawt?

yea, the only feel i get from this is anger. We don't execute terminal human patients, but somehow a dog's life is worthless enough that it's ok to murder him if it's inconvenient?

Yea, living with a tumor is going to lower your quality of life. But being dead lowers it alll the way to zero. The logic here just does not ******* fly.

It's for the best, if they waited until it died on its own it would die fearful, not knowing what was happening to their body. Being alive and then calmly passing around your loved ones is better than to cling to the last bits of life, where his body is wracked with seizures, cancer, and pain, as your loved ones can only watch while your body deteriorates to a slow, painful death.

you may think your sticking up for the animals and protesting against killing/harming them but you idiot you know nothing.
2 months ago I watched my 14 yr old collie die from a tumour that had grown on his side and then later spread into his lungs causing a mucus infection.
it was more than just a lower quality of life for him.

He was a rescue pup pulled from Battersea dogs home after being abandoned by a family to die. then picked up by an elderly couple who trained collies and other such working dogs with potential for sheep. after 2 years training mum picked him up and he latched onto her as his safety net, he never trusted me or my sister but eventually he settled and became part of the family if a little nervous and twitchy still terrified of so many things but even so he was one of us.

Everything was fine till 3 years ago he pulled a ligament in his leg we thought this was the end of his working life and (so he was now just part of the family) but it wasn't, as after many months of recovery, mum let him do a very small amount of work and the next few days he looked much younger. just to be sure of his well-being she worked him again and then took him to the vet to check if it had affected his leg and it hadn’t but during the check up the vet found a small lump just between two ribs she assumed it was just a lump of gristle but to be sure asked for a check up in a couple weeks.
it had grown we now knew it was cancerous but slow growing and so he was fine fore a good while longer but he began to age.

allot faster than you'd think him now being 12.5 ish (we could never be sure of his age as he was a rescue dog with no info on his birth) due to his age and working life he began to develop arthritis which gradually got worse till he was miles behind out other dog on every walk we took them on but it wasn't just that his lump had also grown .....
for his last 8-9 weeks he was almost totally house bound as he had a growing dislike for his once loved walks, his behaviour got grumpier and more erratic and in general you could see his pain and how he was ageing at now 5/6 X the rate he already was.his hair began falling out and he couldn't lay on his stomach because he would drown in the mucus spreading through his lungs and he began having massive gut wrenching coughing fits, causing him to puck much of the bile out of himself but not enough.

he went for his last walk with me and mum on a sunny afternoon but.. he could barely make it to the gate (not even 15m from the back door) so we went back and sat with him on the grass waiting for the vet, stroking him and comforting him as he gave us a doggy smile between coughs.
the vet arrived and gave him a dose of sedative (enough to put a regular dog down) waiting longer than usual it merely made him drowsy prompting the vet to give him another dose.
he died shortly after not of the sedative but of the mucus that had drowned him from falling asleep on his side.
it was then that I heard a sound I will never forget. He was growling and chewing his tongue as his body convulsed while the vet checked if his heart had stopped.

I WISH he had been put to sleep a year before while his tumour was... mostly minimal and he had minor arthritis but when he could still run and play and growl and give us his cheeky guilty look after breaking something. when we could take him for a nice long sunny walk and he and crunchie could play along the way and die happy.
but no we hoped he could get better we were selfish to keep him alive on various drugs. cruel to make him linger in a ' lower your quality of life'. it was our fault. one which you would promote with your stupid opinion of a matter NOT out of our control because I sure as hell would prefer to be shot than to live in this' lower your quality of life' caused by a terminal illness.

and that is the story of my poor grumpy Flash now berried where he was happiest amongst the apple trees overlooking the horses paddock

I'm sorry for such a long whiny response but **** you to the activists and opinionated wankers and protesters that are against helping people and animals die sometimes its the sweetest treatment possible.

TLDR
rescue dog had bad then great life then got ****** over by illness and would have been so much better off if he had been put to sleep a year earlier.

We don't "execute" terminally ill humans b/c is is illegal to do so even though that is commonly exactly what they want. I could be dying in utter and complete agony begging for death, but the law says all doctors can do is pump me with painkillers and wait until it ends.

"Living" in constant unbearable pain, unable to move, wishing for release vs receiving that release that escape from pain. Nearly everyone will take release every time. You may say otherwise right now, but I highly doubt you have seen someone in that amount of pain, I have. I hope with every fiber of my being that I never see it again. In the few moments of lucidity it was crystal clear she only wanted it to end. Nothing else mattered to her. THAT is why euthanizing is the humane loving choice, but those in DC don't care about that.

If i have no hope of recovery, i want you to go out and get the best most hardcore drugs you can and play "Lets get anon as ****** up as physically possible. I want to taste sweet buttery rainbows and for smells to be like cinnamon bacon wraps. I want to see eternity and comprehend infinity. I might die from catastrophic organ failure sometime during the process, but i will have lived more than any man before me.

If that dog was in serious pain it wouldn't move around. You just killed your dog by lethal injection. I remember a story about a vet who did non lethal injections and kept the dog to drain blood from later. You prolly got to bury your dead dog even though he prolly had a good while left a couple years maybe before it would get bad but. You bought in to the whole euthanasia craze.

does that dog look crippled to you ?

And maybe you would rather die, but i ******* wouldn't. i'll endure all the pain in the world if i can keep living for one more second. a lot of people would/ The instinct to survive is built into the core of every living being.

We only end the lives of humans under extreme circumstances. If they're unable to communicate or interact with the world, and if they're unable to live without a machine to support them. At that point, communicating with those people is beyond our scienfic capability. we make the logical, though perhaps dubious conclusion that if they could communicate, they'd choose death. and in the same circumstance, i'll happily support euthanasia for dogs too.

but a tumor? That's a death sentance. Eventual death, with an indeterminate time to live. And certainly at some point that life is going to get worse and worse, but who is anyone to decide when it's so bad that the dog should die. Does anyone seriously believe that, if we could communicate with it, the dog would choose death? survival and life is its instinct.

all of that aside, terminal illness is far from the only cause. Animals are constantly murdered because they were too expensive for the owner, or because they were abandoned, or even just because they were inconvenient to someone's lifestyle.

And the ******* death penalty for assault. **** that. Most western nations don't even execute for mass murder, but a dog deserves to die merely for nonlethally harming someone?

there's just no point to wait until the animal starts to suffer if the death is inevitable anyway. the dog doesn't know it's slowly dying, and therefore couldn't possibly enjoy life to the fullest till the last moment like a human would but instead stopped eating and just become passive. hence it's just easier to let it go when the first symptoms appear (which probably did) and let him go with some dignity and happiness

Yes. There is a ******* point. Life!

All death is inevitable, that's a basic fact of life. We still have laws against murder. To kill something merely because it will eventually die anyway is illogical.

No the dog doesn't understand what's happening to it. Why is that relevant? It isn't being protected from anything by killing it. If the dog is going to suffer, then the dog is going to suffer. That's how things are sometimes, you deal with it. he might have a pain in his chest and can't run as fast as he used to, but he still loves biscuits and playing with the baby.

as for not living life to the fullest, pretty much just the same paragraph as before. half a life is better than no life at all.

If a dog becomes passive, why is that a reason for it to die? Yes it's unfit, its body is weak. So instead of running around, the dog will spend it's days dreaming, and thinking. Contemplating the memories it has of running around in the past, and all the biscuits it's eaten, and all the other little joys of life.

yes it is easier to let it go. for you. You don't want to deal with an ageing dog that can't do the **** you want it to, and can't fully control its body. Killing for convenience.

Dignity and an empty sack is worth the sack.

The one aspect you are missing from the equation is pain. As humans, when we extend our lives we are always treated for the pain that comes with it. Morphine drips, pain pills...those things we use to ease the suffering. Can a dog tell you how much pain it is experiencing? What if most days his pain level is a 9 out of 10? You would never know. And we can't treat dogs for pain the same way we do humans. Their body reacts different. My dog, after 13 years, had more than half a dozen cancerous tumors on his abdomen and hind legs (this was after 3 surgeries to remove previous tumors). He could barely walk, and couldn't go up and down the 2 steps to get outside (I had to carry him). He was blind and deaf. Towards the end he wouldn't eat, and he would **** on himself at night. Where is the dignity in that? The relentless pursuit of maintaining life is pointless, when a painful death is inevitable. Peace.

No, in fact nearly everyone in that much pain only desires release, freedom from the constant agonizing reality that is their life. That is why those with such pain are kept on such a high regiment of painkillers they are basically inanely high 24/7, yet even then it eventually isn't enough. These handful of pictures do not show the daily seizures, inability to get up the stairs, incontinence or what ever else may have ailed this dogs. Yes putting a dog down b/c you can't afford it or are moving is complete and utter crap. But in this case it was to save him from the suffering that was coming soon.

I had to put a dog down due to terminal cancer. It was one of the worst experiences of my life. He was slowly getting worse and soon keeping him alive would be more for my sake then his, b/c I couldn't say goodbye., b/c I couldn't let go. I loved him more than I can say and that is why i did it. To save him from unending pain and suffering to allow him to simply sleep in peace.
