Self-Euthanasia

Postby dinowc » Thu Sep 14, 2006 2:53 am

:cry:
Duke is a 14 year old black Lab. He is hurting. So am I, financially. I am tired and sad, of watching him live out his last days. He can hardly get himself up from lying down. He can't shed his fur. He deficates wherever he may be standing. He can hardly hear (good thing I taught him those hand signs for hunting and obedience). He needs to be put out of his misery! Will OTC meds work and if so what and how much? I have an 'Ambien" prescription and was thinking of using that because I figured he would just fall into a perpetual sleep, no pain or misery! If I were to use that, how many mg's do you think it would take for a 50 - 60 lb. lab?
Reluctantly,
Dino

No you can't "do it yourself". Anything you would get OTC is not going to kill your dog. Call your local shelter or AC & see if they do euthanasia for the public. It is usually cheaper than a vet.

If you care at all about this dog you will find a way to have this done at your vets office or have him come to your house.

It is not right that you leave him to suffer.

Are you already judging me? I have asked for only EDUCATED opinions, not emotional opinions. Your statement, "It is not right that you leave him to suffer." leads me to believe that either you did not understand what I was asking or you just jumped to emotional conclusions. Suffering is totally out of the equation! That is why I asked for EDUCATED advice about AMBIEN. Ambien is a sleeping pill! There would be no suffering whatsoever, as far as what I have discerned.
Thanks for your reply though.
Sincerely,
Dino

Dear Dino,

Evidently he/she don't understand. I pray for whatever decision you do to you dog. I'll pray for your dog also.... Just be with him and touch him and let him know it's alright.

I will pray for you, too.... Do you know that animals go to heaven, too? You'll see him again, don't worry. He will be in a better place.

Oh no. You cannot put your dog to sleep yourself. He needs to be put to sleep by a Vet. It is not an emotional opinion. It's the law. You need to make some phone calls and see if there is a shelter or humane society that would be willing to assist you.

I live in a remote area and do not believe there are any laws against it. The laws, as I am familiar with, have to do with disposal. I intend to bury him next to our 23 year old cat.

The suffering I referred to is NOW. YOU said "he needs to be put out of his misery". YOU said he can hardly get up. YOU said he cannot control his bowels. YOU said you are hurting financially. IF he can't shed his fur it is because you aren't brushing him.

Just so you know I AM very EDUCATED in dog euthanasia. Please take him to a vet or shelter to be euthanized.

SAMMY'S MOM

Postby LSJ » Sun Sep 17, 2006 8:04 pm

I understand you,
it costs 44 dollars to put my Sammy down, and I could not afford the 200
cremation, etc. but I was there with her so I knew she went peaceful,
I wish I could have done more at the time of her death,
but I took good care of her when she was alive, and I figured I have all of the pictures, like when my daughter used to dress her up and she was so
patient with my daughter,
please check around, 44 dollars wasn't that much and they provided all the medicine, and took care of her remains.
best of luck, I know you care for your pet.

Although I think this is a troll, I'm going to post a normal reply.

Dino, Leave Euthanasia to the professionals. What if your dog has an allergic reaction? What if your dog goes into seizures? What if you accidentally make things worse rather than ease the dog of suffering?

I'm sorry you are going through this trying time, but it is important that you leave medical procedures to the professionals. Ask about payment arrangements and have your dog properly taken care of. That can be your ultimate sacrifice for your dog. Your last gift of KINDNESS to your beloved pet.

Well the fact that she / he JUMPED down your throat after advice seems like he / she was baiting for an argument.

:( Oh my gosh..........I can't believe what I have read. Are there really sick, mean people out there that would troll a Animal board. That is just sick and mean. Here we come on here and pour out our hearts about our loved ones who aren't going to make it.
I guess I never thought that would happen :(
I just felt really sad when I read this.
