probably not at that age, but when dd's kitten had to be put down due to a serious illness, she was there.  She was 14 though.  It may be too much for them to handle since they are so little.

that is what I was thinking, my older one knows about pets being put to sleep but not the 4 y/o

Definitely not the 4 year old.     In general I'd say no but it's not cut and dried.    I think it's something that only the parent can judge based on the kids,   circumstances.
