    • Putting a pet down should only be for extreme circumstances, such as when an especially painful death is inevitable. But absent that is always pays to help them get through sickness

    • I rescue dogs for real and nurse them back to health and more people need to realize that often the vets recommend putting them down because it's easy but if they are not in pain then usually it just takes some hard work commitment and time and you can nurse alot of them back into a happy lifestyle

    • This is wonderful because the family had the time and motivation to make it through it. What you didn’t see is them getting up every night sometimes twice to take it to the bathroom or cleaning up after it had an accident because it couldn’t stand in time. People demonize putting a pet down at times
