Dani McVety, DVM, co-founder of Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice, talks about the importance of creative euthanasia and how veterinarians don't always need to follow the rules.

She was taught in veterinary school to take the pet to be euthanized away from the owner to administer the euthanasia drug in a separate room. After being asked by a client if the pet could stay in their lap while the drug was administered, she decided to go against what she was taught and listen to the client. Getting creative with euthanasia can make clients happy and appreciative that you are listening to them and doing anything to help them.
