How Do You Know When It's Time to Euthanize a Pet

No one ever wants to lose a pet.  Having to make the difficult decision regarding euthanasia can make the loss more difficult.  This article provides some insight you may consider if you are facing the loss of your pet.

A friend once said, "It's not the one's I put down too early that I regret, it's the ones where I waited too long."

A few years ago our Corgi, Corkie was diagnosed with lymphoma.  On a Wednesday I took her to the vet for our last good bye.  He advised he didn't think it was her time.  She died sometime Saturday night.  For me, that was more devastating.  As a result, I was unprepared regarding her final disposition.  I was planning to have her cremated so we could memorialize her in a special way.  Instead, she was buried on our property.  We planted a tree in in her honor.

  1. Peggy, I'm sorry to hear about your pet, I'm glad to see she's resting by the tree you planted in her honor. My in-law's are going through a similar choice about the possible passing of their pet. I think planning a proper burial & planting something in their honor is a real great idea. I even heard that there's specialized urns for just this purpose. I wish you the best.
