i was thinking today, i've heard many people say "as long as my baby isn't showing signs of pain ect ect i won't have him euthanized." but in some of those cases the animal is not having a very good quality of life and it's just selfish to not help them cross over. for animals in the wild if they show signs of injury or pain they usually become prey right? i've seen documentaries where lions have broken limbs and they stick it out hunting and barely limping to avoid the hunter becoming the hunted. now does anyone else think that our domesticated pets are the same way? i've seen so many injured sick animals being brought into the animal hospital with "loss of appetite" and then to find out they have real serious injuries and the owners were shocked and they all say the same thing "he never showed signs of pain."
