I would take this as a sign that it wasn't the dog's time.

First, I hope the vet returned his money.

Second, I really hope they wouldn't charge him if he decided to go through it again.

Owner wants to find the dog a home, because he can't afford to pay for medical(the reason for euth in the first place)...how sad.
You'd think the vet would do a favor to this miracle dog and help his issues if he can be given a quality life.

I think this was on my local news along with the Chile miners.

Oh how sad, it would be hard to do it again. I would be afraid of it being botched again. Geeze seems the vet did not check for a heart beat or maybe could not find it?

How awful.

I always get mine incinerated.

The idea of them waking up and then being thrown alive in the cooker -- horrifying.

My vet always waits with the stethascope and then gives us time alone with them. But, it sounds like this guy did not realize she was alive until the next day.

Poor thing.

This angers me, actually. If the dosage wasn't strong enough or watered down, that's the Vet's error, meaning incompetency. The Vet should reimburse him, or actually complete the procedure with no additional cost. This guy almost buried his dog alive! That would have been a horribly traumatic event for him. The whole thing is sick and the Vet erred completely. That poor guy and that poor dog...

The dog had two injections, were the meds were old or what?? The vet is refunding the cost of Euth to the owner.
Not sure if MI has resources to check vets records for errors unless it is really serious.
I had a bad vet experience and should have reported him, though funds for this(policing vets) is not available.

Well, to be honest if he'd buried her while she was so heavily under, the weight of the dirt/dirt surrounding her face would have made breathing impossible and she would have died I'd think, so he wouldn't have known even if he did bury her... The thought of this has always horrified me.. What a sad thing, he obviously loves her.

There's more to this story. A 2 year dog that's so healthy it survived this euthansia has medical bills? For what.....

Cheaper to kill an otherwise healthy pup rather than pay for a vet bill? America..........I love it!

I've heard stories like this before. When I had to send Doerak, I stayed with him for about 20 minutes afterwards to help him cross peacefully. I watched carefully for signs, but the vet said the heart stopped.

But even if the heart stops, I wonder how long they are still aware of what was going on, or how long the spirit stays in the vicinity.

The place I went has a really nice euthanasia room with a leather sofa, soft lights, chairs for family and a lot of tissue. I think I put away at least one whole box.

The dog in the story is 11 and has a spinal problem, making walking difficult. Not sure if there is anything to be done for her at her age.
