30604Re: [CatVet] Sedative 10 second before Euthanizing?
- Aug 14, 2013(I sent this a while back - sorry for the delay in approving
my own message!)
This happened at a 24 hour clinic also.
I thought it was the vet being a bit more callous than she
needed to be - though I had to deal with the same vet a few
hours later and she seemed very competent and compassionate
at that time.
This was a fairly young vet. Given your question, I have to
wonder if the newer vets are being taught that you give a
sedative first - but they are not being told *why*, so it is
a "protocol" without an explanation.
Good question. If I do see the other vet again, I'll ask -
and explain that even if she doesn't see a need to wait, it
is not coming across well to the client.
