Euthanasia Resources


Behavior Euthanasia Resources

I've seen dogs bred for generations and trained from birth to fight to the death, end up living in harmony with other dogs, cats, birds, and children. I've seen well-bred pets, properly reared and trained in loving homes, grow up to become incredibly dangerous. Behavior is just not as simple as " I'd all in how you raise them". Sometimes even though we do everything right, pets can still develop serious behavior problems.

Euthanasia is something that most pet owners are familiar with, but typically in association with physical concerns like extreme pain or untreatable disease. Behavior euthanasia (BE), on the other hand, is far more complicated. There are no blood tests, no Xrays, no diagnostics to definitively know how dangerous the situation is or the prognosis, and there is no cure. Behavioral euthanasia can be one of the most devastating and difficult decisions pet owner will ever have to face and you should never have to do it alone. Below are a few resources to help in this incredibly difficult time.

If you're considering this option for your own pet and need someone to talk to -  I offer Behavioral Euthanasia Counseling
