tdot2003 started following Feeling Guilt After Not Being in the Room during Euthanasia
tdot2003 posted a topic in Loss of a PetMy baby had bladder cancer and there was no way to save him. He was getting sicker and I didn't want to see him suffer. I had him for 12 years and it was so hard to make the decision to put him to sleep but it was an even harder decision to choose to not be there during his final moments. Although he was with his favorite caretakers, who have been with him since he was a puppy, I still feel guilty not being there. How can I deal with this? Any advice will help.
