Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
The only procedure available for at-home euthanasia is to contact a mobile veterinarian to have the service performed. If you will provide your city, state and zipcode, I'll be happy to see if there is a mobile vet in your area that offers euthanasia services.
What is your city, state and zip code?
You would need medication that would otherwise stop your dog's heart. Because of the gravity of such a result, medications that do precisely that are not available to layfolk such as ourselves. Therefore, no, this is not something that can be done at home without the assistance of a vet.
Sorry to hear that. Unfortunately, there are some procedures that we cannot, as owners, perform on our own. Inducing death is one of them. Good luck.
I apologize if you're offended, JACustomer, however there was no cheap shot sent your direction. If I had no wish to ease them out of this life, I wouldn't be recommending that you contact a veterinarian and offering to help you find one that can offer precisely that service for your companion.
Good luck in your pursuits. I hope you're able to locate a veterinarian who can help you. If you need more assistance, just let us know.
