The Euthanasia Procedure.
You will have an awareness of what will happen during this procedure. This will help make the process easier for you.
I will ask you to sign a consent form. this document is important to give your legal permission for me to carry out the euthanasia procedure.
Steps for Euthanasia Procedure:
To enable the euthanasia process to be as peaceful as possible, This allows your pet to gently fall asleep and prevents any distress from the noise of clippers, placement IV cannula or being held by anyone other than you for the euthanasia injection.
• Clipping and Cannulas.
Once the area has been shaved, it is cleaned with a cotton wool swab and an intravenous cannula (a tube which is inserted into the vein and secured using skin tape) is put in to allow a secure channel for injection.
• The Euthanasia Injection.
The euthanasia solution is called pentobarbital which is a barbiturate anaesthetic. This is usually a coloured solution, The pet will be given a concentrated overdose of the anaesthetic so that they peacefully fall asleep and then pass away. This usually happens quite quickly, often in less than a minute, and many owners are surprised by this. The injection is not painful.
Before I gives the injection, I will usually ask you if you are ready, and then if you wish to, you can usually hold your pet’s head, paw or body in the final moments as he or she passes away.
Most owners wish to see their pet’s eyes close but this doesn’t happen in animals; eyes remain open even after they have passed away.
Spending time with your pet afterwards is usually possible.
Following your pet’s death you may wish to take a lock of hair as a memento. Don’t be afraid to ask for the vet to do this for you – it’s a very common request.
