What Happens When Animals are put to Sleep?

In the United States, vets use several common euthanasia to put down animals. The primary ingredient is phenobarbital, this ingredient is fatal in high doses. The effect of the euthanasia is injected into a vein that helps the animal die rapidly and with no pain involved. When the brain shuts down, you know he or she is dead. There might be some residual muscle tone and activity that has it where the animal will kick and thrash, urination, defecation or even a ‘’last gasp’’ breath. A veterinarian at the pound or shelter will carefully listen to the animal’s heart to make sure the animal is dead.

What Does It Mean To Have A Animal Put Down

The veterinarian put’s the animal to sleep with euthanasia, or humanely killing the animal that has been there too long. A veterinarian is the one who puts the animals to sleep for medical reasons such as terminally ill, uncontrollable pain, or loss of quality of life. Some people don't want the animals that are put down. Having an animal put down means to humanly put them to sleep by euthanize them, when they get to the point where their life is a quality of 0 or at least near it. This is called an act of loving mercy in a case of pets. Euthanize is another word for ''put to sleep.''

How Many Animals Are Euthanized Every Year

At least 3.5 million animals have been euthanized in the U.S.A (the United States of America) in 2008. Guess how many were euthanized last year, 2,454-3,369 animals in 2014 in Virginia, a state in our country. The more animals that are euthanized the more animals don’t have a long life and these animals need to have a life like ours a full happy life. About 2,700 animals are being put down so we need to go help these old or even young sad animals. All animals should always be happy like how we are when we get to meet a new friend.
