I don't believe in putting animals down when they are sick. I believe in making them comfortable and letting nature take it's course.
I've had to do it before with my sister's dogs that accidentally got into antifreeze.
I raise chickens and have had to do it a few times for chicks that weren't fully formed before they started hatching or didn't absorb the yolk sac and caught it on the eggshell. On rare occasions the chick just doesn't do well and I can't let it suffer. Comes with the territory in hatching chicks.
I don't think it's very smart to put this idea out there whether it exists or not. Better left unsaid IMO.
As in taking it out with a shotgun, no. A humane injection, yes. Although, in my state even if you know how to administer injections the DEA won't allow vets to give you the medication because people were using it to kill people. So you either have to call the mobile vet or take the animal in.
I'm not in favour of it.
