Unhappy Question about euthanasm

Please do not think bad of me. I have a 12 year old 5 lb Blonde Yorkie. She has been my life for 12 years now. She is dying. Just lays there. Blood and puss are coming leaking out of her rear. She can hardly breathe. Her kidneys are shutting down. I didn't think she would make it past last night but she did. It's killing me to watch her slowly die. Does anyone know how to humanely and peacefully euthanize at home? No I cannot afford a vet, so please don't be hard on me. I can't stand to see her hurting this way. No, I can't shoot her, but is there a sane affordable way. Before I get slammed by anyone please know I am nothing but an animal lover. She is so precious to me but I know it's her time to go.

Hi,

I am very saddened by this and my anger towards the animal hospital is beyond words. They claim to love animals but they want to see your wallet first while your pet dies before their eyes. I truly wish I had a way but I can't think of one.

I'd like to say that I know what you're going through but I don't.
Stay strong

Thank you for you support. She is just so precious to me. She has been my shadow since I got her. She's always at my heel and she even knows what time i come in from work. My husband says the same time every day she sits at the front door waiting for me.

Really this is something you need a vet for...
Normally euthanasia, at least in my area, really isn't that expensive. Maybe $100. A few vets in my area will go to long time clients'homes and mine at least has had offered payment plans in the past (again we are long time client and have a good relationship , eould be different if we weren't). It's not advertised but our local shelter and low cost spay/neuter clinic will do owner requested euthanasias at very low cost for people with ill dogs unable to afford euth through their regular vet. Def worth a phone call.

I would take her to the shelter in your area and ask them for help.

Unfortunately, the shelters in my area won't allow the owner to be with the dog when they perform the euthanasia, but my local shelter has a non-profit shelter "intervention" group that will help owners take their dogs to low-cost vets for a humane euthanasia. Pettyd, can you call your local shelter and ask them for advice and help?

If the dog is suffering I would say my good by's and let her go. Better to know that she is not suffering any more. Kidney failure is very painful.

Dawnben,

Alas, I think you're right. Very sad.

Its difficult to imagine a Vet that would allow an animal to suffer, when there is no hope for recovery. The Vets I know of, in this area, will euthanize compassionately and work out the finances after. As already said the cost to euthanize isn't usually that much, and when we had to euthanize a cat, years ago, I didn't see an invoice for six months. Have you actually checked with your Vet, for costs etc?
