As a loving pet owner, though, the time may come when you need to help your pet make the transition from life to death, with the help of your veterinarian, in as painless and peaceful a way as possible. Euthanasia for a beloved pet is highly personal decision and usually comes after a diagnosis of a terminal illness and with the knowledge that the animal is suffering badly.
Your choices for your pet should be informed by the care and love you feel for the animal. Important things to consider include:. Activity level. Does your pet still enjoy previously loved activities or are they able to be active at all? Response to care and affection. Does your pet still interact and respond to love and care in the usual ways? Amount of pain and suffering.
Is your pet experiencing pain and suffering which outweigh any pleasure and enjoyment in life? Terminal illness or critical injury. Have illness or injury prohibited your pet from enjoying life? Is your pet facing certain death from the injury or illness? Is your family unanimous in the decision?

If not, and you still feel it is the best thing for your pet, can you live with the decision that you have to make? You may want to have a last day at home with the pet in order to say goodbye, or to visit the pet at the animal hospital. This is an individual decision for each member of the family. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, euthanasia for a pet is most often achieved by injection of a death-inducing drug. The veterinarian may administer a tranquilizer first to relax your pet.
Following the injection of the euthanasia drug, your pet will immediately become unconscious. Death is quick and painless.
Be honest. Start by explaining that your pet is ill, suffering badly, and that you have the ability to end that suffering in a very humane and gentle way. The injection is a very peaceful and painless process for your pet. Sometimes, when you really love a pet, you have to make these kinds of difficult decisions to spare the animal from more pain and suffering. There are many wonderful reasons to once again share your life with a companion animal , but the decision of when to do so is a very personal one. You may want to start by volunteering at a shelter or rescue group.
Some retired seniors living alone may find it hardest to adjust to life without a pet. If taking care of an animal provided you with a sense of purpose and self-worth as well as companionship, you may want to consider getting another pet at an earlier stage. Of course, seniors also need to consider their own health and life expectancy when deciding on a new pet.
