Vets reveal what pets do right before death - and it's absolutely devastating

A veterinarian shares some disturbing details about the final moments of euthanized pets.

When a beloved pet becomes ill, and there is no possible medical recourse, many choose to have their animals put down, rather than watch them suffer unbearable pain.

The thought of watching their pet die is devastating, and most choose to hand over the animal and leave them to spend their last moments in the competent hands of the veterinarian.

Now an anonymous vet is begging owners to reconsider that decision through an appeal on Facebook/Hillcrest Veterinary Hospital posted on August 12, 2018..

THE PRESENCE OF THE OWNER WOULD MAKE THE DOG LESS ANXIOUS

The vet reveals that time after time they have to try and console the anxious animals, and make their passing less frightening and more humane. He begs owners not to be "cowards" and explains that experiencing a lonely death is terrifying for their pets.

A BATTERED PUP DUE TO BE EUTHANISED WAS SAVED BY VET

Squish is just 4-months-old but the puppy has been through hell. He was picked up as a stray and taken to an Ohio animal shelter where veterinarians saw that the dog's face was swollen and that he could not open his mouth, and was blind in one eye.

At first, they believe he had an infected wound but were horrified to discover that Squish had multiple fractures in his skull and jaw.

“It was suggestive that he may have been intentionally hit by someone rather than something since there were no other fractures or injuries to indicate accidental trauma like being hit by a car.”

Squish’s injuries had damaged the growth plates in his jaw and skull and he had trouble eating and began losing weight. The prognosis was that Squish would slowly starve, so the doctors placed him on the euthanasia list.

Luckily for Squish, one of the shelter vets, Danielle Boyd fell in love with him and was determined to save his life.

After two jaw surgeries and an eye removal, Squish is now home with Boyd and proves that there is always hope: all it takes is for one loving heart to believe in miracles.
