    I find cats are the purr fect pet…….LMAO RATF PML


    Also, although it does cost more, you can have the vet come to your home. Great if your pet gets very scared going to vets. Home environment and all that, I’d still advise a sedative though, just saying.


    still feel guilty having ours put down. vets advise as nothing to be done .cancer apparently. I stayed. for a while as she  went under.  vision still haunts me.



    Just noticed this.

    they seem to care more about animals than humans……

    Followed by-

    dog lovers tend to treat people like dogs

    It makes no sense does it, it is like a little kid trying to shock all the time and provoke a reaction, as the adult sigh in exapseration and pat it gently on the head, before they send it to bed with a glass of warm milk.

    never answer back and don’t have the freedom to think for them selves

    Obviously never owned a dog, or come into close contact with many dogs. Judging by what it types on here it hasn’t experienced very much at all fullstop, “in my opinion”.

    My husband took my dog to the vet for the last time.Looking back i wished i had asked the vet to come to my home.He was part of our familey,and we had some really happy times with him,and we all loved him to bits.

    All i can say is thanks to the vet and there actions,we had him longer than we would have.Our vet though handled evrything as it should have been handled.Before and after our dog died.Making it barebale for us to lose him.

    I feel really sory for old folk with pets. Pying for pets treatment can be so expencive.I know someone resentley who has two lovely dogs,there getting older and she cant afford the treatment they need for the illnesses that age brings.So very sad,she adores these dogs.So its basicley no money no treatment.

    I also went through this fairly recently and it was heartbreaking, but couldn’t have even thought of letting a beloved pet go through it alone. Sat with her before and after until I was certain she was gone (despite the vet telling me a couple of times!)

    We choose to have these pets and no matter how upsetting for us, why should they be alone at the end.

    Welling up even now thinking about it x

    And there were nights when I’d feel him
    Climb upon our bed
    And lie between us, And I’d pat his head.

    And there were nights when I’d feel this stare
    And I’d wake up and he’d be sitting there
    And I reach out my hand and stroke his hair.
    And sometimes I’d feel him sigh
    and I think I know the reason why.

    He would wake up at night
    And he would have this fear
    Of the dark, of life, of lots of things,
    And he’d be glad to have me near.

    And now he’s dead.

    And there are nights when I think I feel him
    Climb upon our bed and lie between us,
    And I pat his head.

    And there are nights when I think
    I feel that stare
    And I reach out my hand to stroke his hair,
    But he’s not there.

    Oh, how I wish that wasn’t so,
    I’ll always love a dog named Beau.

    I love this poiem by jimmy stewart,bless him he has put exactley in words how i felt about my dog.
