    Why are Americlaps so obsessed with "putting animals down". If you were very old but not terminally ill or actually dying or anything would you still want to be put out of your misery like a damaged workhorse? You know, your blind dog probably still quite likes being alive and takes joy in moments with you. Just because its furs lost its lustre and its a victim of the passing of time doesn't mean you should just kill it.

      i guess it depends on the situation, if the dog is sick but still has a lot of energy it will suffer, but if the dog is old as shit and blind and can barely walk it probably won't have the energy to feel frustrated about it, it will just sleep 20 hours a day and be happy to be petted or eat food, some animals when they are too old just stop eating and die peacefully

            There is no reward for killing animals earlier for your emotional comfort.

            [...]
            [...]
            [...]
            This should be obvious, but animals are incapable of being angsty suicidal homosexuals because they have no concept of dignity and purpose. They do not beg for death because they are a little uncomfortable or because their arrangement is embarrassing. They will walk around on nubs of bone for a decade missing half their face and never once treat death as anything but their greatest fear.

            Euthanizing an animal because YOU wouldn't want to live like that is childish. Use your brain. Does the animal want to live like that? If it was that bad they would stop eating and drinking or crawl off a balcony. Some of you people are the type that would try and have a nice day if you lost a couple of limbs and lost access to all of your hobbies, your profession, and your independence. For some of you, financial disaster too late in life to become a competitive high earner and reliably recover is suicide worthy. You do not have the primal, animal desire to simply live. Your lives are abstracted works of intellect with purpose and reason. You have become immortal things, spirits, that discard their bodies when they are useless and live on as a memory. Animals are below this.

            A cheer to you.

      No one is killing you. You're the one who's probably advocating to remove that possibility from the people who might want that because of your own fear of death. And also coming up with schizo dystopian scenarios in your head.

      Honestly, I think it's some sort of subconscious psychological distinction. Some people are more afraid of death, while others are more afraid of suffering. Everyone is afraid of both of those things, but the strength of each of these fears determines whether one would advocate for euthanasia or not.

    I can't judge because I don't know how Doge's day to day is like. For me personally, I helped my girl in her final years. I kept her alive as long as I knew she kept wanting to go. But when she was done, the sign was very clear. She stopped eating, just closed her eyes, and waited. Sure, I could've probably kept her going, but I promised not to make her suffer because I was afraid.

    So maybe Doge is still living happily. At least one can only hope.

      If the prosthetic hurts they need a refit/redesign and possibly anesthetics, opioids, or nerve ablation. Not murder. Imagine killing a person because they’re uncomfortable with a stump leg. How about we kill miserable virgins too? RIP… you!

      Actually I'm going to elaborate on why something like this (Putting a prosthetic leg on a hooved animal) fricking sucks.
      Unlike carnivorans, ungulates can't live with only 3 legs. Dogs and cats can learn to balance and be happy with only 3 legs. Because of their weight, and just how they're built, heavy hooved animals (cows and horses) just can't do that. So, if a hooved animal has an injury to a leg or a foot that is so severe it won't heal in a decent enough time, the animal has to be put down.
      Why is this?
      Well, like I said, they cannot survive on three legs alone. This is because taking weight off one foot for a significant amount of time would make the animal shift all it's weight to it's other three feet. This will eventually cause severe, painful issues with the other three feet. And I do mean painful. Issues such as the hoof wall coming away from the lamina, which is painful enough, but will always result in near-constant infections. Basically, it can't happen.
      So, what's the solution? Amputation? But they can't put all their weight on their three feet, so, what do you do?
      Oh a prosthetic, of course!
      Except, no.
      The contact point of the prosthetic to the actual leg will eventually result in painful sores, causing the animal to shift their weight onto their three uninjured legs, eventually resulting in what i've already described.
      Furthermore, prosthetics don't allow the animal to actually live in herds. The other members of the herd will bully the disabled animal, and injure it further. This is just how they are. Any roughhousing can also break or frick up the prosthetic. So, they have to be separated. There is a reason why you never see herd animals with prosthetics interacting with herds of their own.
      This is abusive to herd animals. These animals need herds to be happy, again, it's just how they are. In some places of the world it is literally illegal to keep horses and cows completely on their own, that's how fricked up it is.

        Most people keep lone horses without issue. Herd animals are smart enough to have another species in their little herd. Stop appealing to nature. It’s a fallacy specifically for this reason - there is no logical difference between that BS and saying deer need to be eaten by wolves to be fulfilled just because thats how it is in the wild.

        just take care of the amputation like you would for a human instead of slapping a peg leg on and walking away. Properly fit and designed prosthetics on properly treated limbs can support a whole horse or cow without pain.

        You’re not arguing in favor of murder. You’re arguing against half assed medical care.

            Both of those things are true. You dont need two horses. A horse can bond with any animal including a human. And prosthetics can be quite good if you actually do them right.

              You do need two horses. Or at least two equines, a donkey will do fine, but a horse wont be happy if it's only herdmates are goats or cows, and anyone who says otherwise better not own a horse that they're abusing because they're too poor or too lazy to own more than one.

      Killing a human is non-compareble to killing a dog. It is not worth considering in an argument regarding animal euthanasia as that is a completely different agrument to have regarding the worth of human life vs an animal's. It is why no anon here once argued euthanasia pluralisticly or on the basis of informed consent which libertarians champion all the time as a fundamental truth to justify murdering the surplus populations that their policies create.

      If you want to go down that route you can make a vegan thread and we can all sperg there.

      This should be obvious, but animals are incapable of being angsty suicidal homosexuals because they have no concept of dignity and purpose. They do not beg for death because they are a little uncomfortable or because their arrangement is embarrassing. They will walk around on nubs of bone for a decade missing half their face and never once treat death as anything but their greatest fear.

      Euthanizing an animal because YOU wouldn't want to live like that is childish. Use your brain. Does the animal want to live like that? If it was that bad they would stop eating and drinking or crawl off a balcony. Some of you people are the type that would try and have a nice day if you lost a couple of limbs and lost access to all of your hobbies, your profession, and your independence. For some of you, financial disaster too late in life to become a competitive high earner and reliably recover is suicide worthy. You do not have the primal, animal desire to simply live. Your lives are abstracted works of intellect with purpose and reason. You have become immortal things, spirits, that discard their bodies when they are useless and live on as a memory. Animals are below this.

        Animals are capable of suicide. That's essentially what "death from loneliness" is, where they basically just stop eating and just let themselves die and be sick.

        But this doesn't mean that dogs /need/ to be euthanized. You can be old and sick but still enjoy life. I don't think we should decide what is best just from some internet pictures.

          yes, they do DUMBFRICK

          its disappointing that westoids are so soulless they consider animals machines until doctor SOIstein does a heckin MRI-erino to prove there's activity in the anterior homosexual gyrus indicating they're processing words as actual words when anyone who has interacted with a dog knows its self apparent that they are self aware animals that actually have thoughts, think about words, and know they exist

          its such basic shit that you can talk to rats and you homosexual soulless westoids refuse to belive what is in front of your eyes because then "the heckin ethical consistency implications" mean you're a bad person because your "morals" are all based on a pseudo-secular intelligence worship cult carefully constructed to mirror anti-animal semitic murder cults and depend on animals you are used to mistreating "not being like us at all"

          anthropomorphization is the correct conclusion 99% of the time because the majority of human behavior is shared with literally every other mammal and there is almost nothing actually setting you apart from them except being slightly more sophisticated in your use of language and memory. in most ways you are actually unusually dumb for a great ape.

            Have dogs not also evolved more muscles in the upper portion of their face so their "eyebrows" (though they lack actual like, eyebrows, more so the flesh that is in the place of eyebrows) in order to be more expressive?

        >never once treat death as anything but their greatest fear.
        Death isn't their greatest fear. It's getting wounded that they fear and try to avoid. The dog with half its face gone (riddled with infection also) and walking on bones is not just a little uncomfortable. It's living in agony. It keeps going only because it doesn't know to do anything else. It doesn't have the mental capacity to know it needs to walk into a hospital and ask for help. It doesn't have any capability to help itself. Humans with their higher intelligence and understanding can look at that dog and work out whether its life will be a miserable one that will never get better or if it can be helped and make the appropriate decision.

        >Use your brain.
        I am. Nothing would want to live in extreme pain for every moment of their lives with no chance of things ever getting better. That's common sense. It's kinder to put an animal to sleep if its quality of life is terrible with no hope of it improving.

          Animals cannot comprehend death — granted, humans can't comprehend it either ("What happens when we die?") but animals don't fear death because they don't understand that they themselves will die. They don't understand that even when mortally wounded they will die. They only understand an impulse of fear of great suffering that comes from pain. Their will to live comes from the fear of pain and nothing more. They can be in such agonizing torturous pain and yet refuse to die because they are afraid that there is a pain yet greater than that.

          Animals understand that things "die", they see and deal with death quite often, but they don't have the same fear we do. Their biology commands them to fear death, but their biology does not inform them of what the experience of dying is like, so animals can only assume that it is an existence of eternal pain where nobody will ever see or hear you again. Why assume that the pain stops when you die? If the failure state is just "I stop moving and sleep forever" then why would any animal fear that? Animals like sleeping and assume they'll just wake up.

          >Euthanizing an animal because YOU wouldn't want to live like that is childish. Use your brain. Does the animal want to live like that? If it was that bad they would stop eating and drinking or crawl off a balcony.
          You don't have to anthropomorphise animals to opt for euthanasia. I don't care if an animal is incapable of cognitively processing abstract concepts such as suicide and them not acting on it. What I care about is if an animal is incapable of supporting basically bodily functions. If either apply I am putting it down. Why?

          Because you would be at that point directly intervening in prolonging their lifespan, which as a result means you are applying your own ethics to decide that you want to keep animal alive when it would instead naturally die.

          People who euthanise an animal that would die without human intervention are not the one to own up for ethics, its people like you who cannot bear to face their own emotions of letting a pet die. You are the one placing your own emotions over animal. Not the other way round.

          >I THINK IT HURT SO I KILL
          The animal DOES NOT WANT TO DIE.

          Yes, most animals can comprehend death.

          I dont care about your half assed theory i care that animals do not seek death, end their own lives, or welcome comprehensible execution methods under these circumstances. You hardly know how their subjective experience of pain is really like and how well they adapt to it or how much it affects them. If they are not killing themselves (they are capable when they rarely choose) let them live, because generally they want to live.

            And you have now just demonstrated to the class that your postion is emotionally founded. Animals don't have concepts of "wanting" like humans do, they have drives. To want something is an abstract human concept, but drives are instinctive and based on needs. A dog does not "want" to eat that chicken on your plate, it is driven by instinctive function to eat whenever it can because food is non-sustainable in the wild. It is part of the reason why dogs will kill themselves with bloat, it is a drive out of their control. Training a dog follows these principles by denying and allowing drives in return for demonstrated behavior.

            You are likely defending your position so passionately and emotionally because you are trying justify your own actions with your pets current or present, a relatives maybe. Unable to come to terms with the fact that due to you or their's selfishness it prolongued a life of extended pain for a dear pet to satisfy a fear of losing them. I have met people like you before and that is typically why they hold a position like that. I feel sorry for them because while I find their choice immature and reprehensible I understand how strong a bond they form with their pets. These animals cat or dog get them though the modernity and lows in life just as my own pets did. But there is a point where you need to let go anon.

                Maybe not but it is an undeniable fact that animals feel pain, and therefore fear pain. Animals don't have wants but they do have fears. An animal that you know is in pain is constantly afraid, stressed and, you know, in pain. Maybe it doesn't want to die but by that same logic it doesn't want to live either.
                You're that animals owner. It's your responsibility to take care of them. Anything that happens to them is entirely up to you. Keeping an animal in pain alive, for a prolonged period of time, when you know there's no chance of it getting better and it's only going to get worse, is selfish.
                Of course this isn't a black or white issue and of course it's on a case-by-case basis but come on. Have some common sense.

                Actually it would be unethical to kill them as well because you can not prove but must assume they can understand something as simple as dying. The whistler sled dogs sure did when they attacked the guy that tried to shoot them.

                Instead you should give them pain killers and assume they’re like us - apparent suffering like loss of mobility doesnt actually cause them to suffer for more than a week or two and then they get used to it unless theyre worthless angsty midwits that would never breed unless forced.

              Your theory explains animal behavior less effectively than theorizing that they can desire things and act on the desire, and we cant ever actually know what perception of life or their own 'consciousness' animals have

              there is NO amount of outside-study of human biology or neurology that would ever give an understanding or real awareness of the qualitative reality of actually being a living, breathing human. There is no neuroscience, no chemistry, no nothing that can actually get us to an understanding of the experience of tasting a strawberry except actually just BEING a person, tasting a strawberry. Intimate knowledge of the mechanistics cant even approach the actual reality of experience-itself, and this extends to whatever reality is like for animals. We can take our best guesses, but we cannot and never will understand what it is to be a dog or perceive existence as a dog. We cannot access the qualia of dog life, and its in the qualia that life is actually happening.

          You are an absolute moron. Dogs and cats are perfectly capable of killing themselves if they feel, yes feel, like it. A dog will literally stop eating if it is depressed or in pain enough. Same with a cat (they will usually run away and hide in a corner and die). This is actually what happened to the last surviving rescue dog that participated in search and rescue during 9/11. He got so old that he just didn't want to do his favorite activity - eating (he was a golden retriever), even though he was otherwise fairly healthy considering his age (he could even walk on his own, could still see and smell, etc. So they euthanized him. THAT is when you euthanize a dog or cat. Not because YOU feel bad.

              So he got sick, because he's an old dog. Or got a tooth infection. Or something else that made him not want to eat. But to suggest he stopped eating because he just wanted to die? That's a pretty insane claim.

        I had two dogs, when one died the other one waited for around two weeks before realizing the other one would never come back. So layed down and refused to eat or drink anything for days until we had to take it to the vet. Vet told us the heart's animal was abnormally big and had to be euthanized.

        We euthanized our dog several days after he had stopped being able to walk, had trouble relieving himself and had little energy left. He was already old and keeping him alive would've just been prolonging his suffering.

                NTA but its often the opposite - in my experience most nihilists here have only experienced meme-tier suffering, like the absolute 'suffering' of being a NEET or whatever, theyre pschologically crippled (not necessarily their fault)

                Meanwhile many people who have gone through suffering like war, homelessness, family death, etc...are not at all nihilistic. of course theres many exceptions too, but I find it kind of insufferable whenever a nihilist assumes they must have just suffered more than anyone else to have their position, or that any true suffering would result in nihilism. It just isnt true at all

                Death is worse than physical pain by a magnitude of infinity. Nobody should be in any hurry to die, except politicians.

                The real ethical dilemma is whether to devote copious time and energy to a blatantly hopeless individual, or devote it to younger animals that suffer instead. That's something that can only be answered on an individual basis.

                I never really saw it that way. I understand the basis behind this line of thinking, but I almost never felt this way. To me, it makes perfect sense why someone would die to avoid suffering.

              The problem is that the end of a remaining amputated limb does not have the proper tissue to bear weight the way the natural limb does. You can listen to human amputees talking about getting their prosthetic legs, they will talk about the adjustments and the pain involved in getting the limb to tolerate the pressure inside the prosthetic. Even after an amputee has gone through several re-fittings and gotten used to it they will still have days where it’s painful and they need to leave the prosthetic off and use crutches, a wheelchair, or just rest for a day or two.

              Horses are roughly 5 times the weight of a human. That is A LOT of pressure on tissue not meant to be a weight bearing surface.
              Horses cannot stay off their feet for prolonged periods of time. A veterinarian will tell you that if a horse remains lying down for 8 hours for any reason they are at risk for damage to their internal organs, at 24 hours they have a very slim chance of surviving. Horses cannot use crutches or a wheelchair if their prosthetic becomes sore or painful. A horse also cannot tell you where it hurts so you can adjust the padding accordingly.

              When a horse injures a leg to the point that it cannot bear any weight, the stress put on the opposite leg creates the risk that the good leg will develop what is known as “Founder”. Founder is (put simply) when the bone inside the hoof separates from the outer hoof. Founder on its own can cause a horse to have to be euthanized.

              Please go ahead, refute.

                Don't mind if I do. The initial argument is: should an animal life be allowed to continue despite sustaining life long debilitation due to one cause of another, such as age or injury. You argue that horses are one animal that if they sustained injury to their leg it is effectively a death sentence and rightfully so due to the sheer dependence a horse or any large size animal has upon their legs. You are arguing in this case the animal should be euthanized, as the alternative is a much worse state for the creature.

                Despite your points on the lack of effectiveness of prosthetics, I however believe that despite how bad modern prosthetics are having something there is better than nothing. I admit I am no expert on handling horses, but I believe that giving the horse the bare minimum with extra padding and pain killers is better than just putting the beast down. Yes, it won't be at tip top form, yeah it'd prefer its life before, but it has a better chance gaining back its life while it's alive with ever developing technologies than it is dead in the ground.

                Painkillers do nothing in the long term (since you want them to live long term) They are only a temporary solution that can also make things worse: increased tolerance = larger doses = addiction = overdose
                an animal also cannot tell you whether the painkillers are even working. Besides you completely disregarded the fact that padding won't help, humans with prosthetics regularly take them off even if they have the best kind of padding. You cannot do that with horses.

                Stop being moronic thinking painkillers are some kind of a panacea for terminally ill patients. Might as well cryo yourself right now if you think its better being alive than dying when no technology exists to help you

                >Damn jimmy that horse is neighing more than regular better give it the XL pills just so it can get some peace tonight
                So no way of the worse extremes. In this hypothetical scenario you give the horse a gradual decreasing regime of meds so it can live with a peg leg.
                Padding will help to a degree, I'm not pretending that I'm a medical expert but any physical support is better than just jamming a stick in there and renaming the poor thing lieutenant.

                Speaking of prosthetics, they have made more ground over the past 50 years for horses and it's not like it's going to stop anytime soon since people still love the big animal.

                The overall point is the animal can survive and live a life with even shitty prosthetics. Don't picture it like it has only its head remaining attached to life support, If it can do the bare minimum amount of exercise, it can live. The pain will eventually numb.

                They can survive a long life with a prosthetic and proper treatment. Good modern prosthetics take note of weight adjustment to prevent lameness, the main issue is that it's incredibly expensive and your horse can never be ridden again (which is great for the horse).
                If you can't deal with the expenses, don't buy a horse.

        I am against putting down pets unless it's the most extreme examples like your dog being hit by a car and practically living through having every bone in its body shattered. Shit like that is "put-down" worthy.

        I'll never get over how my teenage-hood dog was put down, cried about it for months and I'm still mad about it. Dog was 7 years old, still with loads of energy, physically healthy, very playful, one of the most energetic dogs at the dog park, etc.
        He punctured the roof of his mouth with a rib bone he was chewing and wouldn't stop bleeding. It was not like he was gushing lots of blood all at once but the next day he was still bleeding, just a steady flow of blood. We brought him to the vet and the vet didn't even look at him for more than 20 minutes before saying "Well there's not much we can do. We can stitch it up but that doesn't solve why he didn't stop bleeding" and went on about how it'd be expensive and talked my parents into putting him down, parents opted to put him down without even so much of a second thought and then played the whole "it was hard on us too, we're so sad :(" card. It's been 10 years and I still get furious thinking about it, he wasn't even showing signs of weakness and nobody except for me fricking wanted to keep him alive and see if there was a chance it would heal.

        If I can reasonably afford it or manage the care, and the dog seems still derive joy from existence or interacting with their family (and will eat), I think providing end-of-life care is the better thing to do. Pain meds + assistance till its just not feasible seems more respectful to me.

        westerners worship death as ending suffering, but not everybody thinks suffering is just bad, at least the japanese don't maxximize the pain and then eat the dog like the chinese probably would

        There's a manga by Jiro Taniguchi touching on this. It's sort of episodic but they also had a dog that could barely move was probaly in tons of pain as he got older. It's really weird reading from a western perspective.

          Japanese art illustrations always seem to be so nice when not following the anime trope slop. its a shame you don't see more of it exported out of Japan.

            Pretty much all of Jiro Taniguchi's stuff is great. I recommend looking it up.
