I had to put down my pomeranian because she started bleeding out of nowhere and when we took her to the vet, they said she was just dying slowly and there wasn't anything they could do. I think it was something with her kidneys, but that was a while back and I can't remember. My doberman got cancer, and she ended up dying during one of her surgeries. I had a white scorpion, but he got old and died. My fish were eaten by this huge snail that we had. My tree frogs died of old age. My turtles died of age, too. I had an alligator but she got way too big to keep around so we gave her back to the store we bought her from. My cat got hit by a car. We had a bird but we only kept it until its wing was healed enough to fly again. I've had a lot of pets since I was young cx

The only pet I've had die (besides fish) was my budgie in sixth grade. He just died randomly one day.

My dog is going to be eight years old soon, so she's getting up there. I know I'll have to say good-bye some day. I hate that dog's and cat's lives are so relatively short compared to human's, but I guess that just means we have to cherish our pets as much as we can while they're alive :(

My pets never died, they're just gone to the special farm far away, just like grandpa.

I've never actually experienced the death of a pet that I can remember. Our Cocker Spaniel was put down when I was 3ish, and I really don't remember anything from back then except when we brought home our Miniature Pinscher.

The Min Pin got a spinal fever which fried the poor thing's brain (she'd do laps around the house, eat her own poop, never responded to her name, and never sucked on the blanket that she always did), but we didn't put her down. She got out twice, but the second time was a low-speed chase. We had cars on the bike trail she was running down going 40mph, but when we were out on foot we couldn't get her.

but is so awsome to make rhymes :'3


in a time not to long
there was a deviant called daria
which her mind was so strong
that nothing could go wrong
her hands could do magic
magic never before made
she could turn something tragic
into a beautiful painting handmade

We had to put our dog down. He had diabetes and they couldn't find the right medication for him and he didn't get any better by time. I think he was around 9 years old by that time.

The absolute first name they gave him was Von Chirpy Lion Heart at the kennel.
The name my cousin who owned him first named him Pepi. I still giggle at the first name. Big name for a small dog XD

Typically, it's not because they're "old", it's because they are suffering from arthritis, blindness, no bladder control, etc, and the owner cannot afford to take care of that, and would rather have the animal put down, than put into a shelter where, even a normal animal has a small chance of being adopted, an old one, even worse of a chance.

You are suggesting that I do not have the best interests of a dog that I grew up with and alongside for thirteen years at heart?

Do not presume that putting down a pet that is an integral part of the family is ever a decision made lightly.

My mom had our dogs put down, one of which was violent towards everyone, the other of which didn't like small children. Why the second couldn't be given away, IDFK.
But, you do have to think about the people who euthanize animals who are suffering, such as my cat who had diabetes, no one would of adopted him, and we couldn't afford the insulin he really needed to get better, and he was only getting worse and worse with every single day, he had neropathy REALLY badly in his back legs, he'd fall over, couldn't get upstairs without a huge struggle, and even fell out of the litter box getting out several times, I'd checked with our vet, and there was no guarantee he would EVER recover from the neropathy, even if the diabetes went into remission, and he couldn't even hold his bladder anymore.

Typically, old people have insurance which can take care of them. Pets unfortunately, don't get that in most cases. But even some old people, they'd rather be dead themselves than keep putting up with all the crap that comes with old age. Unfortunately, our animals can't tell us if that is what they'd prefer, so we have to decide for ourselves.

I had to euthanize my cat, but he was only four.

During a lung/pleural tap, the veterinarian punctured his lungs and so they had to put him to sleep. What was a normal routine check-up became his death day. I will never forgive them for that and I no longer trust veterinarians.

You wouldn't believe how common shit like that is. :stare: I heard of one cat who the vet didn't take the water bowl out of the cage, while the cat was on sedatives, and it drowned.

People should euthanize themselves when they get old so they see what their pets go through.

I have actually never had to put down any of my pets. My cat that I got when I was three is still alive, she's 17ish now, but she lives with my elderly grandmother and the whole family is currently operating under the assumption that as soon as one dies the other will to given their ages and how close they've gotten. I had one cat that ran away. One dog that died a couple weeks after we got it. All other pets, aside from fish, are still living.
