    +On arriving at my appoitment with Dr. Poduska I was ushered into an examination room. Dr. Poduska entered the room shortly, helped me get Tipper on the scale and then on the examination table. He looked at her, felt her hip ant thigh and told me that she had l large mass in the hip area that was most assuredly malignant and terminal. I was not suprised by this diagnosis as I had suspected this to be more than artheritis on seeing her condition worsen in the last few days so dramatically. However, I felt that she still had a good enough quality of life and asked him to prescribe some medication to manage her pain. He refused saying that this kind of pain is difficult to effectively manage, and told me that I should do the right thing by her and have her euthanized. Through my tears at that point I conceded that he was probably right and I sighned the approriate papers giving my permission.What came next was pure horror! Ater giving my permission Dr. Poduska administerd a tranquilizer. A few minutes later she was sound asleep. After this he administered the leathal medication. A few moments after this she rose up from the table and made a noise that I have never heard a dog make, which was a ear shattering scream! She savagely slashed at an imaginary advesary. Since I had hold of her harness I was able to keep her on the table for what seemed like many seconds until she again slumped down unconscious. Her heart was still beating and she was still breathing. He then administered another dose-still breathing. He administered a third dose, which finally ended her suffering. I have witnessed a few euthanasia procedures in the past, and they have alway been a peaceful experience for the animnal. On checking with others their experiece was the same-peaceful. On checking with answer.veterinary.com I got the answer. The experience I had happens when the vet. doing the procedure fails to inject the leathal agent into the vein properly and instead into the body soft tissue. The leathal agent has as one of its components sodium hydroxide, a substance as caustic as acid which causes excruciating pain when administed in this way. This is why many vets. use a catheter-to prevent this from happening. He did not. Having a beloved pet euthanised is always a gut wrenching experience. I will be haunted by this the rest of my life! If you love your animals, stay away from this place!
