    ???

    i mean... who cares? a fleeting moment of pain for an animal that`s about to be killed?

    sure it`s not exactly a happy thought, but google Pakistan for some sadder news.

    they are just animals. cute, adorable, but animals.

    Soooo, you would just let it suffer a long, painful and horrible death such as cancer?

    I think we are lucky we can put our beloved pets out of their misery from a terminal illness.
    Yet when a person is suffering and terminal we do everything possible to make them survive to suffer another painful day.

    Yeah this is the hardest part of dog ownership. The people who say they`d never do it just haven`t been in the situation yet. Someday you`ll face this dilemma and you wish your dog a natural death all the way to the last minute.

    should dogs get the vote too?

    I`m glad I`m NOT your pet. We have to be responsible for animals of all kinds in our care. If that means `the big sleep` to end their suffering, then that`s whet we have to do.

    I would NEVER euthanize a pet, ever. - ShadowMoses

    We had to put down our 13 year old `baby` (our youngest kitty) last month.

    He was bleeding out from a GI Bleed. There was no hope that he could live.

    He was in pain and miserable. The Vet said that if we did not Euthanize him, he may linger on in pain for another 5 to 8 hours.

    There was no way that I would inflect that on an animal that I loved so much.

    When the Vet gave the injection, he sighed and relaxed for the first time in hours.

    Then he started to purr for the first time in hours.

    Then he went calmly to sleep.

    Dogs are awesome (I have one which I`m taking for a walk later) and I`d hate to see a dog die, but in all seriousness I`d rather have my dog die than another person (unless it`s someone like Osama Bin Laden).

    Some scary posts in this thread claiming that humans are less important than animals. People genuinely think that? Even as a vegetarian who lets mosquitoes out of the window rather than killing them, I still think an animal is for the most part less important than a human. Animals still have rights of course, but placing them ABOVE humans? That`s rather worrying.

    Just to finish this off, consider this: Your house is burning down and your dog and your child are trapped inside. You can only rescue one of them. Who do you pick?

    I find it fascinating that euthanasia, the most dignified, peaceful, wonderful gift that we give to our beloved pets to allow them to pass on when they are suffering at the end of their lives, is illegal to give to our parents and grandparents.

    Instead we force them to endure painful treatments and prolong their lives so they live out their last days in pain, with tubes going everywhere, in a hospital, instead of peacefully, gracefully, at home.

    @greggpethers jeez... animal lovers kill me. love them, sure, but dont pretend like thier worth extends any further than your own personal good graces.

    The law itself dictates that animals have rights, but consider, an animal has emotions, thoughts, feelings, is self aware, can love and hate. What makes an animal any less important than a person. I think the analogy fits, if the earth were someday visited by a super-intelligent alien species, and they judged us by you, you could not come up with a reason to give us any rights, after all, compared to them, why would we deserve any?

    I`m actually heartbroken, bawling my eyes out right now. When i was about 12 i stayed with my mom while her dog was put down, and i saw his eyes as he died. It`s not something i would want to do again, which is why i couldn`t stay in the room a few years later when my cat was put to sleep.

    So yeah, thanks for that.

    @gorgack2000: Maybe you`re right, maybe animal lovers (like myself) are crazy. There`s something about a pet, dogs in particular. They are always happy to see you, they never hold grudges, they love you unconditionally and don`t care if you`re rich or poor, pretty or ugly. If you have a bad day they are always there for you.

    In return, as an owner, you are responsible for them, as they are dependent upon you. Other people are self-sufficient and have the ability to do things themselves, whereas my dog cannot operate a doorknob. If my house was on fire and the choice was between helping a stranger and my dog? I don`t know, but it would be a hard, hard decision.

    what makes an animal less then a person is the persons propensity to provide for that animal, in every way.

    animals do have rights, sure, but i would argue that it is testament to mans goodness, and not any rights that the dogs have earned. look at the way chickens are treated... cows... etc etc.

    do they have less rights coz they are less cute?

    it;s all based on soppy feelings, and jut like your boy Roni C, you get deluded weirdos who think any animal coiuld be worth a human life. it;s preposterous.

    like i say, love animals, protect them and feed them... but dont lose sight of what they are.

    I don`t know if the person that I would choose my pet over is good or bad. If they would have a family or not. If they were the best person in the world or "someone like Osama Bin Laden".

    I don`t deal in `what ifs`.

    But to answer your question. If it was a stranger then, yes, my pets come before them.

    @DiePSPolice- I understand that bizarre attachment to an animal. I always feel a lot worse when an animal dies than when a person dies. I suppose it`s because animals are generally innocent and less complex than humans.

    However occasionally we have to set aside our feelings and think about the greater scope of things. Yes, it`s going to hurt a lot if my dog dies, but then I save him and leave the stranger, then the stranger`s children are going to be affected. That and the people that stranger worked with, his wife, his guildmates on WoW, his parents, his neighbours etc.

    It`s sad, but in a choice between saving my dog and a stranger, I`d have to go for the stranger. I`d feel absolutely awful for doing it, but I can`t be selfish and put my feelingss over those of hundreds of people.

    Then I suppose it`s all down to how your brain works. To some people, they`d rather not take the risk of saving a stranger over their dog. Personally, I would. Whether that`s genetic or inherited is a topic of discussion for another thread.

    When we had to put down our cat, my mom said we shouldn`t stay because that would be a bad last memory. My last memories of her are still when she`s sick, and one of the worst is handing her to the vet and watching him close the door. I wish we had stayed and been with her D`: My mom regrets that now too.

    Correct. As I answered someone else on this thread. It`s a choice. And it`s a choice that I have to be able to live with, just as you will make the choices that you have to live with.

    Don`t make me cry dammit. I wasn`t there when our first cat was put to sleep. I was only like 8 at the time, though, and my mom was with her. I referred to it as "when she was murdered" for years, although I now understand that our cat had been in so much pain for so long that death was a huge relief for her.

    Your house is burning down and your dog and your child are trapped inside. You can only rescue one of them. Who do you pick?

    lol...these hypotheticals always crack me up. without going into detail, this scenario simply would not play out in my house the way you intend. For the sake of your argument, let`s say my child. My wife and kids always take priority.

    I will always try to save a human life where possible, but that doesn`t mean animals don`t deserve the same. I try to avoid tunnel-vision when making my decisions.

    That said, sometimes people have to make pretty harsh judgement calls. Here`s some back at you, gorgack2000. You can only save one: a geriatric or a child? a mother or a father? A jailer or an inmate? Sometimes our first choice isn`t the best choice. What if the geriatric is in perfect health while the child has a terminal illness? What if the jailer routinely abuses those in his custody? What if the inmate was wrongl

    Sad, but still a worthy post. Pic should be published on blogs and in mags all over.

    On the lighter side, reminds me of one of the lines from `@*#! My Dad Says` book. Something like "Your brother had a last special moment with the dog before the vet threw its carcass in the trash."

    er...wrongly accused? Different people will have different answers to these and all other dilemmas. It`s human nature. It`s not always about living with yourself afterwords, either. You have to live with society afterwords, too.

    ...and sometimes society might not be happy with your decisions. welcome to civil/criminal court.

    @Fuego- Read my last post again.

    "Then I suppose it`s all down to how your brain works. To some people, they`d rather not take the risk of saving a stranger over their dog. Personally, I would. Whether that`s genetic or inherited is a topic of discussion for another thread."

    The discussion is over: The conclusion is that some people are willing to take risks that others aren`t. It`s crazy, but some internet debates DO reach conclusions from time to time.

    And whether I`d save a geriatric or a child is very different from saving a dog or a stranger since one involves two people and one involves a person and an animal. That`s a whole new discussion which I can`t be arsed to go into.

    i didnt mean u were a boy it`s a turn of phrase.

    your approach implies there is no right and wrong. just opinions.

    i dont buy that. i think anyone that leaves a human being to die in place of an animal is seriously messed up. it angers, confuses and depresses me.

    some people think it`s ok to mug old ladies...

    is that ok just coz it`s thier opinion?

    the reason you respect my opnion is because it isnt stupid.

    sure... i got you the first time.

    im just saying, just like old lady muggers, i find your opinion offensive, and wrong.

    also, i dont OWN my opinion like a posession, i FORMED my opinion.

    and i am telling you, that saving a dog, over another human being, is messed up. sure, you live with it, and i will too, alls i am saying is, i am all sorts of glad that people like you dont run the world.

    not trying to be offensive to you, but your opinion deeply disturbs me.

    @gorgack2000 sorry to have beaten a dead horse as it were. My point in asking the human vs human scenarios was to illustrate different factors that weigh in without the human vs animal bias. The same factors can and often do come into play with human vs animal. As you say, it`s all down to a difference of opinion.

    @gorgack2000: "I understand that bizarre attachment to an animal. I always feel a lot worse when an animal dies than when a person dies. I suppose it`s because animals are generally innocent and less complex than humans."

    We are definitely on the same page. Yes, it is their innocence, and also their selflessness. They give and give us love, and ask for nothing in return.

    "It`s sad, but in a choice between saving my dog and a stranger, I`d have to go for the stranger. I`d feel absolutely awful for doing it, but I can`t be selfish and put my feelings over those of hundreds of people."

    So here`s a what-if for you: house on fire, save your 4 year old son or a stranger? The stranger`s death will affect his family, his kids, his WoW guildmates :), his coworkers, etc.. Nobody but you and your wife will be affected by your child`s death.

    People will choose their own child, and I don`t think you would call that "selfish".

    greggpethers - I get you, too.

    You find my opionins offensive.

    I formed my opionins over 40some years of life. I own the decisions I make because of them.

    And I am telling you that if I choose to save my pets over someone I don`t know. I will own and live with that choice.

    And I am sad that people like you do run parts of this sad world.

    I don`t mean to be offencive to you, but your lack of allowing others to have their own opinions without being rude to them is very sad and disturbing to me.

    Getting back to the original post, euthanasia for pets (or animals in general) is lauded by some, reviled by others. I`m really not trying to troll here, but I wonder if those who endorse euthanasia to humanely end an animal`s suffering would do the same for a person. How about those who disagree with animal euthanasia? It`s possible to observe an animal to determine if it`s in pain. A person can (usually) tell us outright. Legality aside, would you consent to euthanizing a loved one who has a terminal illness causing pain and suffering?

    As a Hospice Nurse, I can honestly say that I wish terminally ill people could make that decision for themselves.

    But I understand why people are afraid of this. There are many ways that it could be mis-used :(

    This really hit home for me, because my cat has been very sick. She is 15 years old so she is close to 80 in people years. We just got back from the vets and she is not a good candidate for the surgery that has a possibility to help her.
    The only option we have is to make her as comfortable as possible.
    I have worked with this vet for a very long time, so he didn`t mention euthanasia. He knows and I know that it would not be an option.

    All I can do now is spend my time feeding and watering her like a baby and give her the meds that will make her more comfortable.

    In my position, euthanasia is not an option. She still may get a little better and be able to eat and drink on her own.

    I don`t care what anyone thinks.When you have a pet for 15 years, they are no longer just a pet, they are family. I wouldn`t euthanize any of my family members.

    Thanks for sharing. I`m sorry to hear your cat`s in poor health. I have an 18 yr old cat who, thankfully, remains in relatively good health, but I dread when her health declines. I hope your cat`s health improves, but if not, I`m glad she had someone to look after her as you are. It sounds like she still has a fairly decent quality of life with your assistance.

    I held my cat when he was put down. He was even purring till the end. After 5 seconds the purring stopped and he flopped in my arms. For weeks I cursed the decision to hold him but it was the right thing to do. If you make the decision to end a life it`s only fair you are there for them when it happens.

    This made me tear up. My dog is so close. We`ll have to put her down soon. She`s been with me since I was six and there`s no way I`m leaving. I`m going to clutch her and sob until she`s gone. : (

    @Siyanor: You have the option of staying in the room DURING the injection. You don`t leave after your pet is injected--you are either there from prior to injection to your pet`s euthanization, or you are not there at all. So they look for you for quite a bit more than "ten seconds."

    I don`t think it`s particularly sad but that`s probably because I near enough hate domestic animals. They`re so stupid.

    Although, I read a story about a guy who did this job; probably on 4chan, and that was quite sad

    @Muffinzzz:

    I don`t know if you are here just to troll and start something but if not I will say this:

    Having to put down a pet is profoundly difficult. People inherently get attached to their pets, and as I stated before, they become family.
    Pets are a source of unconditional love. Having to look your pet in the face and know that they will shortly die is something that would effect anyone who has a shred of compassion. Even the thought of it can bring profound sadness to people.

    The only people that are the exception to this are unfeeling bastards who have no regard for the life of an animal.

    As Septemberex asked: Have you ever loved anything?
    If not, I feel bad for you. There is so much joy in having a furry companion be it a cat or dog.

    If you are just trolling..well you should probably start running now. The IAB regulars can be quite ruthless.

    @paddyt07: I don`t know how domesticated animals can be stupid. I had a dog that was able to open my fridge and eat half my food. Quite a feat since dogs don`t have thumbs.

    And what about seeing eye dogs? They are domesticated and trained to the point that they are assets to their blind owners.

    Or service dogs? Be they Police or Military dogs...they are by no means stupid.

    Think before you post dear.

    As a vet nurse the hardest thing i see is Owners having to go through this choice. It is never easy. Always heart wrenching and terribly sad for all invovled. Make the right choice for you and your pet and never regret the desision. If for you hugging your pet while it passes is right then go with it, if you know it will be less stressful to let your pet be away from your pain then know that that is right. You know your pet... let them decide through you xxx

    My cat had to be put to sleep a couple years ago, had her half my life. It`s not easy. Just make sure you spend all the time you can with her, or else you`ll regret it afterwards.

    When I was 15, we had to put our dog asleep that we had since I could remember and they wouldn`t let us stay in the room. I remember her barking and whining at us while we walked away because she wanted to go with us. My parents and I had to walk away so we couldn`t hear her barking anymore, and then we just held each other and cried. When they finally let us in, they had already covered her up with a blanket. I can`t imagine how scared she must have been. :`( 7 years later and I`m literally bawling my eyes out right now just thinking back to it.

    Mannn, you made me tear up so bad. DX

    My dog died from a snakebite about 5 years ago. We walk outside and she wags her tail at us, wouldn`t eat anything, etc.

    I went out to do some errands,came back, and she was gone. T_T

    I stayed with both of the cats I had to put down, I wanted my voice to be the last thing they heard, telling them how much I loved them. It`s painful as hell to do but I promise all my cats that I`ll never leave them.

    Our pets do know we love them. Let that be a comfort to you. You give them a good, happy life and a kind, merciful release when they have reached the end.

    The pain of loss is the price of love. It`s worth it because all the good parts vastly outweigh the bad.
