Euthanasia of pets: a week early is better than a day late

I was at an excellent veterinary congress at the weekend and one of the lectures that caught my eye was a thought-provoking and insightful talk by Shailen Jasani, a vet who specialises in emergency and critical care.

No doubt, as part of his job, Dr Jasani sees many cases where euthanasia is a necessary procedure. It was refreshing and inspiring to hear his take on the processes involved in making that challenging but necessary decision on euthanasia.

(As some of you may recognise, the dog in the photo is my own dog Spot, who had to be euthanased in his old age)
