Choosing euthanasia for your beloved pet is an extremely hard decision. Though traumatic still, it is often the right thing to do. Veterinarians mostly advise euthanasia for terminally ill pets when medical or surgical therapies can no longer help.

Being diagnosed with a terminal illness, however, does not require euthanasia right away. In some cases, the pets continue to enjoy life for several months or even years with the right care and treatment.

Unfortunately, there are cases where there is no hope and you are advised to put an end to your pet’s suffering and avoid increasing pain. Being your pet’s guardian, you have to take this decision with utmost care and responsibility.

Here are some tips to help you with your decision.
