Euthanasia of a pet is a difficult and sad time. Your veterinary help guide you and your family through the decision-making process. It is important to know what to expect before, during, and after your dog is put down. Ultimately, the choice is yours. Make a decision about aftercare and notify your vet. Talk to your doctor about your decision. Any questions that come to mind ask. You will find comfort in making this decision. In dogs and cats, veterinary euthanasia usually involves an intravenous injection of pharmaceutical agents that will quickly stop the heart. In most cases, the solution is mostly made up of pentobarbital. Some euthanasia solutions also contain phenytoin. The most effective way to administer the solution was through a vein. Your dog's heart will listen to your heart to confirm the death. Be aware that your pet's eyes will remain open. Grief is different for everyone.
