Ready to have your day ruined?
A South African veterinarian posted a heartbreaking message on social media about their experiences euthanizing pets. Many pet owners find the experience too difficult to be present for, so the pets are forced to spend their last moments frantically looking for their owner.
Excuse me, I need to lie down.
The comments have been equally heartbreaking.
“So glad you posted this. I’ve heard people say “it was too hard for me to stay.” REALLY ? Too “hard” for you?
“That time isn’t about YOU. It’s about THEIR last minutes on this earth.
“I dont care how much It hurts you. Do the right thing for THEM. All they gave you was unconditional love,” she added.
The vet’s emotional post was prompted by a tweet from pet owner Jessi Dietrich from Knoxville, Tennessee.
She said she asked her vet what the hardest part of his job was.
“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 so the animal's last moments are usually them frantically looking around for their owners &tbh that broke me,” Ms Dietrich wrote in a tweet.
Anyway, that’s a big pile of sad. Here is a video of some happy puppies.
