  • Humane only does it on certain days of the month, which have passed. We have news staions doing a story on how a dog gets left to die if you have no money at the time, so we are getting something done. IDK whats wrong with him but he has been vomiting for 3 days and he has not eaten for 3 days or drank for 3 days and all he does is lay around. We already lost one dog last year because of this, and I dont want to lose another, especially since it belongs to my neices.

  • Most animal shelters will humanely euthanize your pet for free if you cannot afford to pay for it. If you can't afford to keep him alive it's probably the best option. Sorry, it's a really crappy situation. It's a hard choice to make.

  • Sounds like your dog has parvo!! It is highly contagious and almost always deadly. We had a dog with it her treatment was $2000 and they didn't even guarrantee she would make it. She did make it, but she almost didn't. If your dog has parvo you need to do something really fast, it travels through the air and other peoples animals could get it vaccinated or not.
