Title: Euthanasia: When Things Don't Go According to Plan

Description:

Intravenous access can be difficult in obese patients or those with peripheral edema and tips for IV access will be discussed (have you tried the dorsal pedal vein?). If IV access is not possible alternated routes for euthanasia (e.g., intrahepatic, intrarenal) are required and careful thought must be given to how these are explained to and performed in front of an owner. It is important to explain to owners what to expect during the procedure in lay terms, but equally important to be able to talk them through the less common things we may observe such as muscle activity, “seizure-like” activity, and when additional doses of euthanasia drugs are required. Phrases that can easily be recalled will be provided. Dealing with aggressive pets will also be discussed.
