What to Know About Euthanasia When Your Cat is Too Ill To Go On

What to Know About Euthanasia When Your Cat is Too Ill To Go On

Once you have made the decision to end your pet’s life, you will definitely want to know what to expect during the process. Knowing what is going to happen can help to give you and your family some peace about the decision that you have made. Here is what happens during this time.

Where will it happen?

You will need to decide where this will happen. It can take place at your home or it can happen at the vet’s offices. However, you must check with your vet to see if they provide these options. Some professionals will only agree to do this at their offices and not at your home.

When making this decision, consider whether it will be upsetting for your kids or other pets to see the animal die.

Prepare your kids

You need to mentally prepare your kids for what will happen. Give them a chance to say goodbye to their favorite pet. Even the adults in the house should be informed about this decision and when it will happen.

If you are not sure about where to start or how to do this when it comes to talking to your kids, there are some helpful kids’ books that you can get for them. Read through the book with them so that they can understand what is going to happen.

The medication

Your pet will be given one shot of the drug that will cause them to die. This drug can be given as an injection or as an IV in one of the pet’s legs. Once this shot has been given, it will take the pet one to two minutes to pass away. The animal will first become unconscious before dying. You might see them twitching and even taking their last breath. They might die with their eyes open.

In some cases, the vet might decide to give the animal a sedative first. This is to help calm down the animal in case it is frightened. However, if the animal is calm, there will be no need to administer the sedative.

During the euthanasia cats process, you can choose to be in the room or you cango out. You might find it comforting to be there for your pet and keep petting it during the process.

Burial

You then need to decide what to do with the remains of the pet. You can choose to bury it or cremate. Before you do any of this, you need to know what the county and state rules are for proper disposal of pets. Also, consider using a pet cemetery.

If you opt for cremation, the company doing this will pick up the remains of the pet from the doctor’s office or from your home. They will then bring back the ashes of the animal. If you want a memorial service for the pet, the company will let you know when the service will be.

Euthanasia is a great way to ensure that your pet is treated with dignity in their last moment.
