Putting down your best friend is the hardest thing anyone can do.
In the past, we worried about leaving a dog or giving it to the SPCA because it was known animals were given or sold to scientists who did experiments on them.
So in order to avoid that, you made sure the dog was put down before leaving so it would not be made to suffer.
After watching this video, I now have shivers going up my spine.

Do we now have to take the body home after euthenasia, to make sure the vet did a proper job?
This is another example, that no one can be trusted to do the right thing and for the right reasons.

We put our 7 year old shepherd down because of major hip displasia. He would have needed
many operations,at another facility who did this sort of thing, lots of money, and no guarantees that he would not be afflicted with the same problem after wards.

We did not say good bye to him as this would have been too painful and I would have broken down last minute and taken him home.But it cost us a lot to do this after the xrays and such, plus cremation costs.
Now to find out we paid for one thing and then if the Vet did another ......??????

This gives plenty to think about.
Vets get samples from companies and like doctors, they push products for these companies ,making patients sorta like guinea pigs.

This sort of makes the whole system kinda untrustworthy.It makes the pot calling the kettle black a reality .
Vets have become pushy people, making you feel bad for not doing something or not feeding the dog a special brand of expensive and yet maybe still unhealthy dog food.
They have been known to lead people on to spend more money.

This man was stunned to see his dog wake up but now, how can he put it down again, when the dogs' will and destiny, is to live?

Man to dog trainer: "Every time a bell rings, my dog goes into the corner."
Dog trainer: "That's OK, he is a Boxer."

A wife says to her husband one weekend morning, "We've got such a clever dog. He brings in the daily newspapers every morning." Her husband replies, "Well, lots of dogs can do that." The wife responded, "But we've never subscribed to any!"

We heard about this dog on the news -- unbelievable. But I agree that putting down a pet that has been part of your life for many years is exceptionally hard to do.

George - It just gives you the willies thinking that maybe you gave an animal in, thought it was put down humanely, and then it woke up and was being experimented on.
What a horrible end to a family pet.
