To All The Pet Owners, Read THIS

February 4, 2016 | 2 Comments » | Topics: Animals

To pet owners that have to put your baby down; stay there with them! As much as it’ll hurt you to see them go, it’ll give them a sense of comfort, and perhaps you a sense of closure. I worked at a clinic, not as a vet, but as an assistant. Sometimes, I had to hold them as the final shot was given, and it would kill me a little every time I saw owners walk out of the room, while their baby lay there on the table looking for its parents, confused, and in some cases freaking out.

A few owners stayed and actually held them as it happened, those pets remained the calmest and looked the most peaceful. As the voice of their master whispered “it’s going to be ok” into their ears and they got scratched in their favorite spot, they mustered the energy to give that final purr, or that last lick to the face. Their glistening eyes, still full of life, telling their sobbing parents everything they wanted to say, everything you needed to hear, without a single bark or meow – even if your little guy was one of those that loved to wake the family up at 4 in the morning.

    Sadly I have had to say goodbye to many of my pets over the years, and every one that I could be with I was. I felt I owed it to them to be there for them,as they were always there for me. It is a sad thing to have to do, but you do owe it to them to comfort them in their last moments.

    And yet I continue to lie to myself and everyone else who will listen, saying “I don’t want another one, because I can’t go through this again.”
