Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello this is Dr. Holloway and I am a licensed veterinarian. I understand that you have concerns about Dusty's kidneys. I am here to help answer your questions/concerns. I understand you are seeking medications to give him to humanely euthanize him at home. Well to be completely honest, the only thing that can do this is Euthasol. Buprenorphine, which is an opiate, won't cause death and is unlikely to do so even in high amounts. No vet here will tell you that is going to work, nor is it humane to do for your pet. I know you wish to ease his pain, but this is not the answer.
A logical alternative to doing that and putting Dusty through a harmful overdose is to contact a mobile veterinarian who is willing to do a house call and humanely euthanize Dusty.
I am also available for a phone consultation if you still need one. Please follow up with a response if you wish to discuss this further.
