Hello. Welcome to JustAnswer. I am Dr Z. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with a reply ASAP.

Thanks for trusting me to help you and comfort today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 30 years of experience and would be happy work with you.

I am sorry to tell you this, but there is no medication that can be administered orally at home that can offer a safe or effective euthanasia. The only way to provide a humane end for her would be to have the proper euthanasia solution administered by IV injection. I can understand if your finances will not allow, but I would suggest that you check with your local humane society or animal shelter as many provide a low cost or no cost option for cases where the pet is ill.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please reply so I can clarify for you.

My posted replies are for general education only and not meant as a diagnosis. Only after a thorough veterinary examination can a diagnosis foryour pet be made and specific treatments be advised or medications be prescribed.
