How to humanely get rid of a dog?
There are a Few Alternatives to the Pound
- Solicit Friends and Family Members. Maybe you can't keep your dog, but your little cousin would love him…
- Seek Out Rescue Groups…
- Find a “no-kill” Organization or Shelter…
- Ask Around.
So talk to your vet about whether your pet should get it.
If she's very sick and already quiet or has trouble breathing she may not need it.
The euthanasia medication most vets use is pentobarbital, a seizure medication.
In large doses, it quickly renders the pet unconscious.
If you choose to euthanize your dog at home with the help of a vet, you will need to arrange with one who will be willing to come to your home.
Many veterinarians consider this the most humane way to euthanize your dog.
