The second euthanized dog has come back to life. This story, as stated by a Pet Owner to me in an email is a tragic failure on so many levels.
A cage full of puppies were left outside the Sulphur Animal Shelter last week; they were all euthanized (killed) without apparent efforts to find homes. Their bodies were “sent to a dumpster for disposal“. The next morning, Animal Control Officer Scott Prall found one puppy very much alive – in the dumpster.
Yes… a tragic failure on so many levels. Litter mates of this beautiful young pup were killed. This lucky fellow will find a home but I can’t help but consider the lives of his litter mates. What a horrible crime it was to kill them. And then there is the looming question of how this little puppy could have come back to life after receiving the euthanizing drug; the second dog that has come back to life in just a few months (that we know of).
Back in 2000, the FDA tested dog foods for pentobarbital, the drug used to euthanize animals. They found levels of the drug in many dog foods purchased right off store shelves. In their own words, the FDA initiated this test because of complaints from Veterinarians that the drug was losing its effectiveness. So ten plus years later, dogs are still consuming foods that contain pentobarbital and the drug seems to be loosing its effectiveness even further. Another tragic failure.
