If your pet is in severe acute distress, then I would advise you follow your vet’s best advice.
This is in your pet’s best interest. If the problem has been slower to come on, then your vet actually might just be saying you need to start ‘thinking about’ putting your dog or cat to sleep.
Or some vets feel embarrassed to send you away to think about it because then they have to charge a consultation fee in addition to their euthanasia charge. If you have your pet put to sleep there and then, they feel less embarrassed about the money.
When a vet says consider euthanasia, they are saying the vet is unable to help them anymore, and they are recommending euthanasia for humane reasons.
If this is the case, then do take your pet home. Thinking clearly in the busy noisy practice situation is hard… Take some time to think about it. Make sure you agree with the vet.
Then think about how you want to have them put to sleep. If you choose Paul at Quietus Vet, he will come to your house and guide you through this process.
The 3-Stage Technique is without doubt absolutely the best way. It is is globally acknowledged as the gold-standard. This event is something you can’t afford to have any regrets about. There is no trying again…
