In my completely unpopular opinion, the most disgusting and irresponsible feature of our Russian veterinarians and people in general is the principled condemnation of euthanasia .

Very comfortable, sitting warm and clean, with grub in an embrace, with the presence of any opportunity to earn money, to get medics. help and protection of life-health-civil rights - to sit with all this and express "your opinion", splashing saliva from indignation.

Imagine that you cannot find housing and work for yourself - in general, nothing, that you can be maimed, raped and killed - without consequences, that you will die for a week in dirt and pain with broken bones and pus in your mouth and intestines, in plain sight - and everyone will spit , you will also kick away with disgust ... That you, having escaped the success of infections, trauma, psychopaths-sadists and starvation, will many hours in terrible pain freeze to death naked in the winter on the street before you die ...

Weak? Take it and go out naked in a 20-degree frost outside for 2 minutes, hungry? And then imagine this hell for months, years, without any hope.

It is convenient to be kind, habitually turning away from this horror. Turning away and forgetting is not a sin. But to put to sleep, let the one who is doomed to this horror doomed to die without pain and in a dream is a sin, bad, it's such meanness and meanness, monstrous cruelty ... Really? !!!

At this point, my censorship comments ended.

PS Usually, all this disgusting cowardice and irresponsibility is justified by the magic phrase "give hope" or "what if he gets lucky." So the chance that you will be lucky is ONE against a million chances that you will not be lucky, that it will be so bad that none of the condemners will dream in a nightmare. And these chances are only increased by "marasmic" old women and "psychotic" animal rights activists, who, on average, have to feed 20 such poor people with their pensions / salaries. Because 10 thousand of these unfortunate ones, with all the desire, ONE animal rights activist / senile will not feed. Cool statistics, huh? Interestingly, all condemners at least once a year spend at least 100 rubles to feed those who are so sorry, eh? No, it's not interesting, you yourself have to pay loans, change iPhones ... It's interesting to condemn and talk about conscience.

Dedicated to all the good ones.

As a veterinarian, I will say that no, there is no remorse, even when the bill went now to the second or third hundred. Firstly, this is the deliverance of the animal from torment (which, unfortunately, is inaccessible to people in our country), and secondly, this is work, and it is done just like any other. Some of my colleagues sometimes asks him to do this now, but this is already nerves and sentiments, not conscience. And the most morally difficult thing in euthanasia is not euthanasia itself, but a psychologically literate conversation with the owner of the animal. The only time when there can be remorse is if someone once had to euthanize healthy animals at the insistence of the owner. But the vast majority of veterinarians refuse to euthanize healthy ones.

My sister is a veterinarian by first education. I practiced for four years, then I left this path, because it was difficult for her. Then I went to retrain. But it's worth noting that she worked with pets. She said that the most difficult thing is to work with the owners, who themselves harm their favorites. My great-grandfather was also a veterinarian, but first in the army, and then at the Institute of Agriculture. He said that during the war every horse was treated to the last, because they were sorely lacking. Somehow he even said that the soldier was worse than the cattle treated. At the institute, too, it was not necessary to lull to sleep.

Firstly, this is his job, the person knew what he was signing up for when he was studying to be a veterinarian.

Secondly, he does not put an animal to sleep just like that, he eases his suffering. If death is inevitable, why torture the poor animal?

And every person treats it differently, someone does not care what he did, while others will feel remorse and suffer. I think over time every veterinarian gets used to this, the more he puts the animal to sleep for his own good.

You could limit yourself to saying that this is part of the job - the same as an injection or cleaning your ears. But to make it clearer, I will try to write in detail.

I cannot vouch for everyone. Moreover, I know those who, with the slightest doubt of success, would rather kill than undertake to treat. But these are butchers (including in the literal sense: in industrial animal husbandry, in addition to humanism, economic expediency also plays an important role).

However, in pet medicine there is a general rule: every patient is necessary to heal "to the last": either a successful cure, or ... Euthanasia, according to this rule, is permissible as a means of getting rid of intolerable suffering. However, everyone evaluates them in their own way.

In any case, every practicing doctor has to deal with this. And you also have to learn to live with it. There was - and still is - the practice of "attachment from the tomb": some owners consider euthanasia as a way of abandoning a healthy animal krivolapchuk.ru Conscientious doctors keep the animal alive, but then new problems begin - it needs to be put somewhere. But there are times when you have to make a choice. The hardest thing happens with their own. But when, for example, a dog screams even under anesthesia, it is more merciful to help him leave, and not to prolong the torment.
