Some people euthanize their pets when they get too sick to survive, and/or when the people don't want to pay for medical care. Is it ever okay to kill your pets?

NO, PEOPLE SHOULD NOT KILL THEIR PETS, LET THE PROFESSIONALS DO IT, IT IS MORE HUMANE.

Okay, but the professionals are people too. Perhaps the question should be "Should people let professionals kill their pets?"

no way to killing pets, if they are in sickness they should not be killed as well, they have to be cured and be taken cared of.

I don't look at it as killing my pet it is ending ther suffering. I unfortunately have had to have our vet. euthanize 3 of our beloved pets, all were very old and had medical problems that couldn't be helped by any vet. We tried. This was very hard for me but seeing my pet suffer was worse. Maybe some people would like to help their pets but their money situation doesn't allow them to, this is a sad situation as well.

depends on how bad they are suffering
