OPP-Should She Help This Dying Dog?
A woman's husband's dog is dying. The husband is in denial over losing his best friend. The dog is suffering. Should the wife go against her husband's wishes and do what he can't.
Mike and Kate,
My husband's dog is on its deathbed and he does not want to take it to the vet to be put down. I can tell she has been miserable for weeks and does not have a good quality of life. I have offered to go with my husband to the vet or to put her down myself in a humane way but he has decided to let it go naturally. I feel bad for our dog and believe it is cruel to let it suffer this way. Should I assist in its death and stop her suffering or should I respect his wishes and wait it out? As a side note, I am a nurse and I know how to help the dog go quickly and painlessly without him knowing. Or should I take it to the vet without him knowing and have the dog put down to end it's suffering? I can't stand to see the dog suffer.
