Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Re: euthanasia

Our little Bubba was injected also in the heart-painful to even
think about, but he honestly didn't seem to be in discomfort. It
took about 5 minutes, but his last 5 minutes were of my husband and
myself kissing and stroking him and thanking him for bringing us so
much happiness. Choosing the time is difficult. He may have lived a
little longer, but the quality was not there. He endured
medications, changes in medications, but then it became apparent to
us that we were keeping him alive for selfish reasons. The time came
when I looked in his eyes and knew he wanted to rest.
