I wanted to know if it is required to euthanize animals in vet school. I am getting different answers when searching this online. Also, I wanted to know if there has ever been a vet who doesn’t euthanize animals, even if they worked with another vet who would euthanize. Just questions, so please no arguments about how “humane euthanasia is”. Because if it was a fact that euthanasia is the “right” thing to do, than why can’t we do it on humans?
As a vet tech you most likely would never have to euthanize an animal (though you might have to be there to keep the animal calm, ect.) esp. if you explained that would wished not to do so, however as a vet I believe it is part of the job to be able to euthanize animals.
