When we lose a pet, it is one of the hardest things that can happen to us. They are a part of our family, after all. Our pets are loyal to us for our whole lives. Why shouldn't we do the same for them? They are like our children and many people treat them this way so why wouldn't you want them to be comfortable and happy all the way until the end of their lives?
One person asked her veterinarian what the hardest part of his job was. Although it wasn't the answer she was expecting, she wasn't really surprised. The vet said that although putting an animal to sleep for the final time is one of the hardest and worst parts of his job, the actual hardest and worst part is when the owners of the pets decide they can't be in the room with their pet while they are going to sleep one last time.
The reason for this is because the pet starts panicking looking for his or her owner to be there with them. They get frantic looking all around and start whining. Now, does this sound like a happy last moment for your pet? No!
No matter how hard it is for you to be there, imagine how your pet is feeling at that moment when they don't see you there anymore and never will again. Try to be there to make your pets last moments of their lives to be as comfortable and happy as it can be, please! It will break your heart but they will be happy, one last time.
