For some reason it had been a long time since I'd been involved with any euthanasias at work. It was just how the timing worked out. Today, however, there were five or six and I was involved with three of them.
  • A seven year old ferret. I don't know what, if anything, was wrong with him despite his age. He was anesthetized on a table when I walked over and did an inter-cardiac injection. I'd been a long time since I'd done one but it was a clean stick and he went quickly.
  • An old beagle. Again, I don't know what was wrong with him. I didn't ask. A teenage boy and his mother were with him.
  • A cat who had gotten her teeth cleaned yesterday. She was still woozy from the anesthesia when the owners took her home and when they let her out of the carrier she jumped off the bed and broke her back.

    how sad for the poor family with the cat- to get through the anxiety of a dental cleaning and get her home just so she can fatally injure herself

    My heart has broken for the family with the cat. What a tragic end for a loved one! I have to go hug my son now.
