re: Anyone here ever personally put down a pet
I'd rather fork out $100 to let them go peacefully and painlessly.

re: Anyone here ever personally put down a pet
As a parent of an aging dog who I love dearly, what happens if a pet is having a stroke or something late at night and you live 15 minutes away from a pet emergency room?

Do you just try to get there as quickly as possible? I suppose that's the only option.

Every pet I've ever had.

Owe them that much. No dog of mine is dying on a stainless table.

re: Anyone here ever personally put down a pet
When I was in high school, my mom accidentally ran over the family cat. We thought it was dead and my mom and sister just couldn't pick her up and bury her. Dad was at work so I was left to do it. It was very sad.

Picked it up, placed it in an old grocery bag, and dug the hole. When I placed her in the hole, she meowed again. I was shocked because I thought she was dead. So in an instant, I made the executive decision to not bury her alive and put her out of her misery right then and there before burying her.

I still am haunted by having to do that. Sometimes I even have nightmares where that little bitch comes back and is a demon, terrorizing me and my family.

True story.

re: Anyone here ever personally put down a pet
This is a hard thing to have to do. No one is right or wrong it is all just what you think is the right thing to do. IMO if it is your pet then it is your responsibility to deal with it. Last year I had to put down my Catahoula due to cancer. I let it go to long and she had gotten really poor even though she was still eating every day and had even gone blind and was lug headed. I dug the hole first and led her to it and let her lay down in it with a real meaty deer leg to chew on. Let her enjoy the deer leg a while I sat there and said my goodbyes then a quick squeeze of the trigger and she had no clue what happened. To me I have to think that is a better way to go than going to the vet in a strange place and being on a cold metal table with unfamiliar people smells etc. But like I said this is just my opinion there is no true right or wrong so long as you handle it somehow so the pet suffers as little as possible.

re: Anyone here ever personally put down a pet
The reason I'll never do it myself like I did is I knew she thought I was taking her out to play. It just felt incredibly wrong. You have a point about the vet trip being traumatic in itself but they do make house calls. More expensive than a bullet but worth it to me.

Among other things obivously, it's quite literally what vets go to school and are trained to do and a service they offer.

Yes, just like you'd do if it were your wife, kid, or parent.

re: Anyone here ever personally put down a pet
A couple of years ago, my sweet wonderful female Rottweiler had to be put down due to cancer. I'm not afraid to admit that I cried all the way to the vets office in Covington. I watched the vet put her down, the hardest thing I've ever had to do.

After watching both methods I am convinced that a .22 to the head is much more painless than anything the vets do.

I didn't but my dad did. Was the house dog. Lived for 14-15 years. I was at LSU at the time i think and my mom was at work and couldn't leave. Either way my dad went to the vet and had to put him down himself. Was the hardest thing for him to do

re: Anyone here ever personally put down a pet
Yes, once. One of our dogs escaped and climbed the CL fence into a pen where our black mouth curs were. They ripped her belly open and left her to die at 3 a.m.

Had no choice but to end her suffering. I said my goodbyes to her and cried before, during, and afterwards. It's a terrible feeling but had to be done.
