Euthanasia is when they put a pet "to sleep." Permanently, like in killing it. Anesthesia is to put it to sleep so they can do surgery. I already answered your other question and you jumped down my throat. Did you have your pet put down or was he having surgery?
You did NOT answer my original question!
Yeah, I did. I asked you how come you had to have your dog killed. So did you? Or did you mean anesthesia?
Anonymous, re-read the question. The original poster clearly said the word, "euthanasia", NOT anesthesia. I don't know where you got the idea that she was talking about anesthesia. And no, you DIDN'T answer her question. But I will.
Mary, first of all, I'm very sorry for your loss. And I'm sorry your precious pet had to go the way it did. I agree with another poster who responded. I think the vet screwed up. Pets are not suppose to scream the way yours did. The injection is suppose to be painless and quick. I've gone through pet loss more times than I want to think, and every time I had to put my beloved pets to sleep, I would always hold them, and when the vet injects the needle, the pet just goes limp, and the heart stops. Something must have happened where maybe the needle went in the wrong way, or something. Anyway, I'm sorry you had to experience that.
She asked it a different time and I answered it then. She didn't say her dog was sick and had to be put down so I asked if it had to be killed. I don't think an animal should be put down unless it's in pain and suffering but she didn't say that's what happened to hers. She asked the same question 5 months ago and somebody already told her the vet screwed up so why's she asking again?
She doesn't have to go into any kind of detail, to satisfy anyone's curiosity. I assume that the dog was sick, or possibly old and sick, but it's not up to me to ask or judge what had happened. Anytime an animal has to be put to sleep, it's a very emotional time, and to see the beloved pet screaming and withering around, that's got to be really heart wrenching.
And if it's true, that she has already asked this question several months ago, maybe she asked it again now because she wanted to try to get more answers. Anyway, HOW the dog died shouldn't be the issue. The issue is, the dog owner is trying to get some answers as to WHY it happened the way it did.
