The word euthanasia comes from the Greek words meaning “good death.”

And that’s exactly what euthanasia is meant to be – good, in the sense that death occurs peacefully and that it puts an end to the pain and suffering that a pet may experience.

About euthanasia

Persistent and incurable inability to eat, vomit, signs of pain, stress, discomfort, or difficulty breathing are indications that euthanasia should be considered.

The process of euthanizing cats and dogs is quite simple. When you bring your pet, the veterinarian applies a sedative to ensure that they feel comfortable.

When you are ready, they will inject the medicine that stops the animal’s heart so that they do not feel any pain.

Is euthanasia the right solution?

Often, when dogs and cats age and suffer from chronic medical problems, the pain and lack of energy can last for a long time.

But with euthanasia, we can choose to let them go when they are no longer able to enjoy life as before.

If you think this may be right for your pet, we will explain the whole process in detail so you know exactly what to expect.

useful tips

When can euthanasia be the right solution?

Some situations to keep in mind are:

Pain and suffering

Does your pet have difficulty breathing, pain during routine exercise, or need extra help?


Is your pet dehydrated? Do you need to supplement your fluid intake? How does your dog or cat react to fluids?

Nutrition and diet

Does your dog or cat eat enough? Is he having difficulty eating? Does he experience constant or incurable inability to eat, does he vomit?

Mobility and physical health

Does your dog or cat need help to get up? Does he want to go for walks? Do you stumble or have seizures? Does it respond to your presence?
