Thank you for suggesting Dr. Chen. I asked my friend to call Dr. Chen and talk about the euthanasia issue but Dr. Chen couldn't agree right away with it. The veterinary doctors really want to be assured first that the pet is really suffering before taking such drastic action. Gal stopped eating and drinking water last week. She was not pooping/urinating and she lost a lot of weight. National vet chain didn't want to perform the euthanasia so I took her to another vet that deals with exotic animals, near the Taichung Science Museum and the Pajero Waffle and Coffee shop. The doctor examined Gal and agreed to perform the procedure because the rabbit's backbone was very palpable, and she was gasping for air through her mouth.

Yes. Doctor Chen told me she needed to review the case before agreeing, meaning she needed the medical file. But at the point the pets are not eating, usually Dr. Chen will suggest euthanasia herself. The not eating means quality of life is impaired, as the vet at the exotic place draw the line.

Doctor Chen has told me that if Toto cannot eat, it is better to send him on his journey without pain.

The other line is extreme pain. A you said, poor gal was gasping for air. That is a sign of extreme distress.

Sorry to hear about your loss.

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.

BTW I forgot to give the name of the veterinary clinic :

Darwin Animal Hospital
Boguan Rd X Jinxin Rd (close to El Pajero Waffles)
Tel: 04-23262759

The clinic is specialized in other kinds of animals (rabbits, turtles, snakes, birds, etc) and also dogs/cats.
