Hello,

Very sorry to hear about this situation. Good question.
No, there is no other way to humanely euthanize a dog or cat at home.

Vets have sedative medications plus the typical highly concenrated anesthetic gent that quickly stops the heart. That's why the term going to sleep is quite accurate.

I would encourage you to get in to any vet immediately.
Either quickly relinguish to an open shelter or a vet.

Depends on where you live.

Suggestion:

Type in google search the name of your city followed by veterinarians and start making a few calls.
