Insulin overdose would be a horrible death.


Do you have any large animal/horse/cattle vets in the area?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I guess that's an answer, but not what I'm willing to accept or pay for.
Expert:  Dr. Stacy replied 6 years ago.

The word euthanize literally means painless death.... An insulin overdose will kill your dog, so will antifreeze, snail bait, rat poison, or any assortment of lethal toxins. But it will not euthanize your dog.
