My pet rat has a mamarry tumor right under her chin. We've had it removed twice, at $300 each time, and were told that it would continue to come back over and over. We decided to just keep her as long as she was happy, eating, and not in pain. Well it's the size of a golf ball now and while she is still happy and eating, it's getting harder and harder for her to walk around.
If need be, we'll find the money to have her put down at a vet's office. But we are really struggling right now. Is there a humane and safe way to put her down at home? I feel like a monster even asking this.

I heard the most humane way to euthanize any small pet is to put it in a paper bag and put it in the freezer. They supposedly get sleepy and freeze in their sleep. Don't know, it's just what I've heard.
