Every pet owner has to deal with the thought that the beloved family member is very likely to die in front of you. If you grew up with dogs or cats, you probably had to say goodbye several times.
This farewell will not get any easier with time. It is particularly bad for most pet owners to have to put their animal friends to sleep.
The thought of watching your four-legged friend die can make you sick. Nevertheless, pet owners should be strong at these moments – for the sake of the animals.
Unfortunately not all masters have the courage and the strength to stay with their animals until their last breath. They are not there to facilitate the transition and prefer to leave the work to the veterinarian alone.
Now a veterinarian who wants to remain anonymous has decided to share his thoughts about this decision with the public.
The vet’s message:
“As a pet owner, it’s usually inevitable that your pet dies before you do. So if you have to take your pet to the vet to give it a worthy, painless end, I want you all to know something.
You were YOUR TOTAL LIFE LONG the center of their world!!! They may have been only a small part of your own life, but for them you, their family, were everything they knew. It is every time a crappy decision/a crappy day/a crappy time, that cannot be denied, and it is shocking for us humans to lose it. But please, I’m begging you, don’t leave her alone!
Don’t let them make the transition from life to death in a room full of strangers, in a place they can’t stand. What most of you don’t know is that they SEARCH FOR YOU IF YOU LET YOU ALONE!!!!!
They search every face in the room for their loved ones. They don’t understand why you left them behind when they were sick, frightened, old, or taken away by cancer and needed your consolation bitterly.
Don’t be a coward because you think it’s just too hard for YOU. Imagine how they feel when you leave them in their most sensitive time. People like me are always trying to comfort them, alleviate their fear and try to explain to them why you just couldn’t stay.
From a tired vet with a broken heart.”
