Our love for animals, especially dogs, has got us to the point where we create gruesome and disturbing living conditions for them just for the cost of getting what we want. But is all dog breeding bad? Is dog breeding ever okay to do?
As veterinarians and pet parents, we are tasked with keeping our furry family members happy and healthy for as long as possible. But dogs have a shorter lifespan than people, and no matter how well we care for them, eventually, we will have to deal with end-of-life decisions, whether it is due to old age or illness. In the veterinary community, we have the option to help our patients leave this world with dignity and without suffering. So, is it humane to put down a dog?
