Pet owners are quick to include their pet as a loving member of the family. As with any member of a family, it is hard to say goodbye when their life is nearly over. The heartbreaking reality of losing a pet is too much to bear and it's why one vet is speaking out and pleading with pet owners to reconsider the selfish way in which they say goodbye. Jessi Dietrich recently tweeted this message, "asked my vet what the hardest part was about his job and he said when he has to put an animal down, 90% of owners don't actually want to be in the room when he injects them."  While it is an agonizing thought to make the decision to euthanize our pets to ease their pain and suffering, it usually involves our vet taking our beloved pet behind closed doors to administer the injection to end their life.  We simply can’t stand to see our pets die before our eyes.  But according to another "tired broken-hearted vet," the final moments of a pet's life is filled with fear and confusion as the family members they've spent most, if not all, of their live together are nowhere to be seen. "Do not make them transition from life to death in a room of strangers in a place they don't like. The thing people need to know that most of you don't is that THEY SEARCH FOR YOU WHEN YOU LEAVE THEM BEHIND!!!!!" The post read. Death is part of life and while each of us handles it differently, it is worth considering that for as much love and devotion our pets fill our lives with, it is only fair to be with them to comfort as they take the next step into another world.
