      Keeping a terminally ill dog or any other animal suffering terrible pain, alive indefinitely, is not showing kindness, rather prolonging the suffering of the poor creature. To help cut short the sufferings, one can resort to euthanizing. Euthanizing your pet can be a difficult decision to make. However, during extreme circumstances, one has to take this drastic measure. There are numerous ways to euthanize your dog at home. However, euthanizing is considered illegal in some states and prior permission must be sought beforehand.

      If the dog is very large as well as ill, and difficult to carry to the veterinary clinic, euthanizing at home is a good option. Your home can provide the various creature comforts to your dog before your pet passes away. It provides other pets in your home to come to term with the death of your dog and bring in better acceptance of the truth. Some ways include using carbon dioxide gas chambers, overdose of sleeping pills or shooting in the head. But think over these ideas deeply before going for any of them. Euthanizing your dog at home might not work out always. It can turn out to be messy and your dog can experience more pain instead of being relieved.

Consult your veterinarian before taking any step, for it is rather painful to see a dog going through the process of euthanasia.
