abortion

We have two dogs (Bella - Girl, Basse - Boy) Bella was pregnant a couple of weeks ago, until we found out that she had a bad knee and one of the four puppies would be dead when it was born which would also kill her. So we got an abort for her a couple of days ago, we also got her sterilised because of her knee which also is inheritable. Do you think it's immoral to give a dog an abort? have you been in the same situation? what would you do if you were in such a situation?

Since abortion in humans is different than abortion in animals, then you did the right thing....if it saves teh dogslife, then you had to do what you had to dol..

I am a lady and I know I wouldn't have have an abortion myself. I have two dogs and so I tend to do whatever is in their best interests. I ask my dog's vet her advice about what I should do some times. If your dog, Bella, had her puppies it would have killed her and one of her puppies. So therefore you did what you could to save your much loved Bella. It was wise of you at the same time as her abortion to get her sterilized. I would be very upset if I got a similar situation. I love my dog, Magic, so very much. I am not sure if I would be able to handle such an awfully difficult decision. Good luck with the health and happiness of Bella and Basse.

If you do it to save your dog then it is a right thing to do so. You can't let her has babies and let her die, right? I can't do that either. If she can't have a baby in the future, I still dont feel bad either cuz I can save someone life.

I too had a dog but never we got an opportunity to face that situation ,thank god. I think that what you have done is correct because you will have your dog with you only.

Ww also love our dog and we did our best to help them in times of needs. Like a person we ned ot help them because they are our best friends. Having an abortion for the dog is not immoral because they are not human. Abortion is mortal sin only in the law of God. In human law it will also violation if abortion is not implemented. Have peace in your mind it is fine and well to have your dog an abortion for you can save the life of your pet. Have a nice day friend!

Abortion is bad, that will always be implanted in our mind. But there are times that you have to do abortion because it is needed. The intention is not really to kill but to save other lives, that is an exemption.

No, not if it is going to save the dog's life. Abortion is different for cats and dogs than it is for humans.
