Euthanasia - A painful Decision

Euthanasia is a difficult decision to make when our pets age and/or get very sick. Some people say that euthanasia is a privilege that we have as pet owners, to prevent unnecessary pain and suffering.
Most animals are very tolerant, and generally do not express their pain. Since our pets can't talk we rely on other indicators to guide us to make this difficult decision. Appetite is a strong indicator of how an animal is feeling. Try to assess the pet's quality of life - if you were in their position, how would you feel? Are they alert? Can they get up to go to the toilet? If your pet is a cat, is s/he still grooming? Does your pet still seek your attention, or does s/he just want to be alone? If you are unsure, having your pet examined by a vet is recommended.
