Long beach’s animal shelter task force wants to know what “treatable animal” means — 1 Comment

  1. The grammatical meaning of treatable simply means if they can be given treatment with medication or some kind of medical procedure, but in real life it means if medication has a reasonable chance of bringing about a cure. No doubt that can be abused by someone who just wants to be rid of the animal, but any veterinarian who goes along with that should be investigated. I remember when my white Turkish Van Suleiman had been ill for several weeks and no treatment helped. finally it was time to take him to the vet for a final appraisal. The vet who is a Professor of Veterinary Medicine said his organs were shutting down and soon he will go. It was decided to end his suffering there and then. Just before he got the lethal injection I spoke to him and he found enough strength to lift his head and call to me in his usual way. Then he was gone. I will never forget that moment.
