Veterinarian Dr. Faith Banks offers pets and their owners support and help when they are saying goodbye.
If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me this question... I’d have lots of dollars!! What amazes me most about this question, is it is often asked by the people whose home I am in, while we are sitting around their now sedated, beloved pet, as we are about to begin the euthanasia process. I feel the answer is obvious, it is right in front of them. Sleeping peacefully, sometimes even snoring. I do it for their pets, I do it for them, I do it for me.
At first, they open the door to their home and greet me with “you have the worst job in the world”, followed by “how do you do this?”.
