I will be in bits when it's my turn.
I don't think the vet is allowed to do it to humans, pal. can duane confirm this?

Personal choice really.

Probably best to have it done at home if your dog is very immobile, or finds the vets particularly distressing. But if possible I'd have it done at the vets, mainly for selfish reasons, as I don't think I could stand going each day into the room where my dog had been put down.

Depends on the vet.

My local vet practice, Shipman, Allitt & Partners, will give you the full service. They'll even send your remains home in a pretty little presentation box.

On a totally unrelated note, the veterinary profession has a significantly higher suicide rate than the rest of the UK population.

Must be great saving animals lives. But how shit would it be to have to see dogs take their final moments in front of their distraught owners on a weekly/daily basis?

Personally, I couldn't do it. That, and the fact I didn't get any GCSEs.

I know your type. you probably have them put down after they stop being cute or if they get mud on your new pants. monster.
