Do veterinarians have to put animals a sleep?
Veterinarians are not required to euthanize animals, but the vast majority will do so at some point. However, there is a wide range in the reasons why a veterinarian will euthanize an animal. There are some veterinarians that will only euthanize for medical reasons - incurable cancer, severe untreatable injury, fatal illness, etc. There are other veterinarians that will euthanize for non-medical reasons, such as inability of the owner to afford treatment. A few veterinarians will euthanize unwanted animals, such as older stray animals at shelters.

How many dogs are euthanize per year in the US?
There are no central agency gathering numbers from all the shelters in the US each year but itâ??s estimated that over 3 million pets are euthanize each year. This is down significantly from the 20 million that would be euthanize in the 1970s before the campaigns to get shelter pets adopted took root.
Asked in Domestic Dogs, Rabies
Is it right to euthanize a dog with rabies?
Unfortunately, yes. I know that it's wrong to euthanize animals but when they become a potential danger, you have to. I mean, if you didn't euthanize a dog with rabies, the chance of it biting you and doing serious harm to you would be 80%. Euthanasia is a gentle way of killing an animal. This is the only reason why it should be used. Otherwise, it's cruel. I hope this helps!
