I would have never felt so strongly about this before Max... I will never, ever euthanize another dog without sedation first. My vets didn't do it in the past with our other dogs and we had no problem. I don't want to go into details, but thank God Max's acupuncture vet sedated him first.
Like Jean said, why not - it certainly can't hurt. In my opinion, there is no reason not to.
