Conclusion of putting down a large dog
I said I would post the outcome of a previous thread. The 150 lb dog that had become vicious was put to sleep Friday peacefully in the dog's own yard by a very sympathetic lady vet. The dog's owner, our friend, gave him seven tranquilizers in some hamburger. The vet's assistant said one or two was normal and all seven might even finish the job. An hour later the dog was still alert and active. The owner gave him four more of a different type and the dog finally calmed down and laid down so that the owner could comfort him while the vet approached and gave him the first of two shots. The first was a sedative which put the dog completely out. We are all sad but it was something that had to be done. Thanks again to all the comments and suggestions from the previous posting.
