When to Consider Euthanasia

The decision to let go of your pet can be a very difficult one. Most pet owners never want to consider saying goodbye to their pet and being the cause of their demise. Yet when the time comes that your pet is nearing the end of their natural life, there are a number of reasons you might want to consider euthanasia.

Your Pet Is In Constant Pain

When your pet is in constant pain due to illness, cancer, or degenerative diseases, there is no reason to allow them to suffer. Although they are in severe pain, they might be able to live naturally for many more years if they are otherwise healthy. Euthanasia in these situations is very humane.

Your Pet Is Terminally Ill

If your pet is terminally ill and has been given only a brief time to live, it is generally a good idea to have them euthanized while they are still in the earlier stages of the illness or disease. This will prevent a good deal of the suffering that they would go through if you allow the illness to take its course.

Your Pet Is Advanced in Age

Age takes its toll on a pet. It’s hard for us to imagine, but pets age so much faster than adults that it often sneaks up on us. Before we know it, we have an elderly pet. With age can come a lot of health problems. A lot of pets, especially purebred pets, have arthritis and other joint issues in old age that can affect their quality of life. When this happens, it is a good idea to have them euthanized so that they do not have to suffer.
