Vets that euthanize (South Thailand)

Recommended Posts

Do any TFV members know of a vet that euthanizes pets in Songkhla, Trang, NST or Krabi? Here in Phatthalung I can't find a vet that will put me cat out of his misery (chronic kidney disease). I have had to watch my other cats die a slow miserable death in the past few years and I would rather not see a cat suffer so much again. Thanks for any help you can give.

I know our local vet in Surat will, but she has certain criteria that have to be met before she will do it.. ie can't eat by itself, can't walk etc.. My dog faded out before I got back from work, otherwise I would have done it myself.

Metta Hospital in Surat-Thani euthanizes, and I know at least two other vets who will do it also. And according many Thai are considered as "bad" vets because this. same as Cornishcarlos, the cat must be really sick. 

 

Goodluck, these are hard times....

Which is why it's so necessary to find a good vet, early on.

 

Taking your pet to a cheap vet may be more cost effective - but it's unlikely they will understand how much you love your pet, and are prepared to pay anything for the best possible treatment when they have serious problems.

 

A friend pointed out that it was unfair to take pets to cheap vets for minor problems, and then expect another vet to euthanise when it was eventually necessary.

 

She was 100% right, and so I always take my dogs to an 'expensive' vet.  They know their history, and how much my dogs and I love each other.

 

Consequently, when the worst comes to the worst - they come to my house to euthanise 😭.

Thanks everyone for your help. I don't mind driving up to Surat when the time comes. Our vet is the best in town but she'll only give dying pets a sedative. 

 

We have a Metta Hospital in our town but the vets won't entertain the idea of putting a pet out of it's misery.

I can't understand why vets here won't put suffering, terminally ill animals down.

 

The vet will refuse on 'religious' grounds, then go eat fried chicken or BBQ pork.  They never seem to have this problem when its party time and they kill a pig.  What about them killing the fleas, ticks and worms on/in dogs and cats... that is killing living things!!!  

 

The Buddhist things is supposed to relieve suffering in the world... putting a suffering animal to sleep painlessly and quickly seems to fit this idea... dragging its life out as long as possible, causing in misery and suffering, and also the heartache of the pets owners seems to be INCREASING suffering in the world.
