Most of the critters I have been present with when undergoing the procedure slipped peacefully away. So much so, that I encouraged my sister to come when we put Kitty down. Uhg! She was wasted when they finally diagnosed her with diabetes, and we still tried the insulin, but Kitty got worse.

Anyway, it was hard to get it into the vein, and then she wasn't dying. And she wasn't dying. They ended up having to stick her again. It was pretty awful.

On the whole though, and I am always there with them, telling them what a good dog they were, and so on, it has been just fine without a separate sedation.

I always ask that all my pets have a shot of sedative first in case they have to be put down. In fact it is written right on their file cover. I dont think I could handle a painful death on top of the heartache of loosing them in the first place.
Loki 8/23/08,& Augie, bday-11/13 Gday-3/14,
Larka 1/4/06-8/16/17 Palla, 7/16/06-6/10/16 you were the tree that gave me shelter, the rock that gave me strength, for ever in my heart, until my journey has run its length. I will always love you.
