Default morbid topic-humane euthanasia

For those of you that breed, every once in while, I am sure that offspring are not 100% healthy...legs don't develop properly, or animals get sick beyond help....etc...

How do you decide when it's time to "let them go" and how do you do so?

I don't have frogs yet but this does worry me.

thanks!

This article addresses these concerns reasonably well.

Caudata Culture Articles - Euthanasia

As a footnote, I personally do not at all advocate for home methods, and can only stress the importance of having a good reptile/amphibian veterinarian, and having a good relationship with them. I'm linking this article for its informative purposes only.

I can't answer for deciding when its time to go, but it sounds like putting Oragel on a Q-tip and putting it on the frog's back is a painless and humane method of Euthanasia. Here is another tread on the topic.

I hope this helps!

Thanks for the info..I hope I do not have to deal with this. Luckily, Iowa state vet hospital deals in reptiles so assuming they will also see amphibians as well. Only 30 mins away from me!

Pentobarb or euthasol given IP but I believe both are either controlled substances or prescription only.

Yes both are class 2 controlled. Not a prescription to be given to general public....unless you want DEA to come for a visit.
