My parents have two dogs, both are quite old and ill. Chances are high that sooner or later the decision to put one of them to sleep has to be made.
We want to make it as easy as possible for the other dog, so that it understands what we are doing. However we worry that the dog will develop a fear towards the vet - or worse, us - if we let him join the procedure.
While we could drive to the vets clinic, the vet already has agreed to come to our home if necessary. While we prefer the later, we still don't know at which point we should let the other dog join (after or during the euthanasia).
How can we make this procedure as easy as possible?
