My Vet gives Sedation in a vein in one front leg. I was only paying partial attention to him, but I saw him check his watch, take pulse, check heart beat and respiration, also picked up the leg and was feeling for response from the dog. Then he switched to the other leg to give the final shot. There was no struggling, just nice and calm as my frind made the trip to the bridge. I think there are some reasons why my vet gives the Sedation shot in the Vein, he is timing and checking, this gives him an idea of the condition of the Veins. It the Sedation doesn't take then he knew the vein blew and the veins would never handle the final shot.
I don't care if the Vet doesn't normally do this, they will for my dogs or I will find another Vet.
The Vet was my dogs one and only Vet for his entire life, so my Vet even took it hard, so after he loaded my guy for the trip to creamation, I asked if he had a few minutes to meet my new puppy. We came back in the house and I Introduced him to Cheyenne, who I had only had for a couple days (no I didn't plan it this way, I think my old guy kept hanging in there because he didn't want me to be lonely). He asked if he could sit and play with her for a little while. I said you bet that is why I had you come in.
I want that trip to the bridge to be as calm and comfortable as possible for my pets.
