How will you handle euthanasia?

Answer examples and advice for how to answer this interview question for a Veterinary Technician interview

Advice
Do you remember when your dog Skippy was taken to the vet as a child and he never came home? How devastating to lose a pet. They become a furry family member on four legs. Your ability to relate and show compassion to pets and customers will help you throughout these situations. Putting an animal to sleep is sometimes the most compassionate choice when they are suffering. Consider responding in this way:

"When I am forced with no better decision but to euthanize a beloved pet, I take time to talk with the owner and explain the situation. I give them choices and time to think it over. I am sensitive to the customer and the animal's needs and I try very hard to not get emotional."
