Vets here, that quote the nonsense that they can't put a very sick animal out of its misery are pathetic hypocrites, who don't deserve the right to practice animal medicine.  Just religious mumbo jumbo stopping them doing a job that they should be doing, indeed, have a duty to do.  

It is not all vets. We had a similar situation to the OP and because of the age the vet wanted to put the dog to sleep but my sister in law insisted he remove the tumor, about the size of a grapefruit sticking out the side. The dog survived and had another good 6 months before the tumor returned, and one day never woke up.

If I remember right it was about 500 baht to have it put down and disposal, as opposed to around 4000 for the operation. I suspect many may blame the vet rather than want to pay.

Some vets will but lots of them will not.  You have to ask around.

Mike k,   I am not sure where you live  -   if in a larger city look around for a Vet who is willing to euthanize your dog.   If your dog is genuinely suffering this is the humane thing to do.

 

I bred and exhibited show dogs in Australia for many years,   and have sadly had to have this done a number of times over the years.    In fact just 2 or 3 weeks ago had to have my old 11 1/2 year old put to sleep.    It is very quick and the humane solution if your dog is suffering.

 

It is true that in general the Vets here are not keen on doing this   -   but some of the younger ones understand that at times this is sadly the best option.   Good luck.

Apparently it has to do with Buddhist beliefs, or so I am told. The idea is that the dog was a person in a previous life.

very useful link.  Thank you.  I already have the necessary equipment.  This has to be one of the best ways.  I had already decided to use this method for my next sick dog.  This article explain how to do it very well.  You just replace the dogs air with an inert gas.  Argon, also works.
