The euthanasia medication most vets use is pentobarbital, a seizure medication. In large doses, it quickly renders the pet unconscious. It shuts down their heart and brain functions usually within one or two minutes. It is usually given by an IV injection in one of their legs.

Safe: Some Vegetables.

Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.

Even a plain baked potato is OK.

Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.

Rawhide bones and other edible chews can pose a choking and blockage risk. In fact, this is a much bigger risk than contamination or digestive irritation. If your dog swallows large pieces of rawhide, the rawhide can get stuck in the esophagus or other parts of the digestive tract.
