I would be absolutely livid at ANY vet that did not follow that type of protocol. I can't imagine how a modern day vet could not.

Again, i'm so sorry for your loss.
Good for you, I only wish I had known this, I just took it for granted that they would make his final transition as peaceful as possible, I have never had to put a dog down before, Cocoa was my first dog. I was always told that it was peaceful and they just drifted off to sleep. Both my husband and I were stunned. Believe me when I say, I will never go to this vet again.

Thank you all for your warm sentiments, they really mean a lot to me.

I am so very sorry for your loss

My BIL just went thru this a couple weeks ago with his 14 year old lab No sedation, I won't go into the graphic details, but lets just say it was a horrific scene and he said he'll never forget how horrifying it was

A friend of ours is a tech there, my sister reamed her a new one, and asked WHY they didn't sedate first? She said they NEVER do unless someone asks! Thank goodness I do not use these vets, mine always always sedates first and they don't expect an owner to ask

Again, I am so very sorry for your loss

I actually did not know this wasn't protocol until reading your story. I had to euthanize my cat a couple years ago for illness for which i was not there , and one puppy a long time ago to which I was there for the procedure. As peaceful as the procedure was for my pup I dont think I can bear to be there for my now senior lab (which is my heart dog). PTS my pup was just so devastating for me then.

On a more cheerful note I also have a 3.5 yo yellow lab and in 2 weeks a GSD pup, hence me joining the forum!!

What a blessing to you and your husband Cocoa was. And what a blessing to Cocoa ya'll were to him. Big hugs to you.

Run free of pain Cocoa and wait for those you loved you at the bridge.
