I'm sure its here somewhere but I just can't find it. It seems there was something about the importance of having your dog sedated before euthansia, but I can't find it now. I'm switching Vets and while interviewing the new Vet on Friday I asked if they automatically sedate the dog first and he said they do not-that you have to request it. I'm prepared to have my dogs files noted with this request for the future-is this what I want to do? Isn't it better to sedate them? Is there pros and cons to this? I was prepared for the Vet to say they automatically do this so then I wouldn't have had these questions but when he said No, etc. I now have to wonder. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks. And no, none of my dogs are facing this but I just want to be prepared and have their charts marked accordingly.
