The heartbreaking reality of losing a pet can sometimes be too difficult to bear.
It is a tragedy that leaves people devastated, so much so that sometimes they can not be there for their animals when they reach the end of their lives.
Earlier this year, a tweet from the American Jessi Dietrich touched on that moment and her comments struck a chord with thousands of people around the world.
"I asked my veterinarian what was the most difficult part of his job and he told me that when he has to sacrifice an animal, 90 percent of the owners do not want to be in the room when he injects them," he wrote.

This Twitter post that touched the shocking moment where humans fail their animals
"So the last moments of the animal are often frantically looking for their owners and that broke me."
In response, Hillcrest Veterinary Hospital – a clinic in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa – shared a similar message, urging owners to take care of their pets until the end.
The publication, written by a "broken-hearted veteran," asked those who took their animals to the vet for a "humane end without pain" so they would not leave their animals, although staying there can be devastating.

& # 39; I beg you NOT TO LEAVE THEM. Do not make them go from life to death in a room of strangers in a place they do not like. What people need to know that most of you do not know is that THEY SEEK YOU WHEN YOU LEAVE THEM BACK! The publication was read
"They search in each face of the beloved person.
& # 39; Do not understand why you left them when they are sick, scared, old or dying of cancer and need your comfort.
"Do not be a coward because you think it's too hard for you."
The timing is one that can be profoundly difficult, according to Melbourne veterinarian Lauren Bugeja, who euthanized older pets in their homes.
But she told Mamamia, the animals are relaxed and there are times when an owner is too upset to be in the same room and they will have to leave.
She said she has never had pet concerns in her final moments because she spends time talking and consoling them with her nurse.

"If a pet is left alone in an unfamiliar environment, such as a veterinary clinic or consultation room, then it is more likely that he is worried because he does not know where he is.
"For this reason, I would recommend that you stay in the room with your pet if you decide to do it in a clinic."
Dr. Bugeja said that the way a person faces such a devastating event depends on the person and that he would never pressure anyone to stay if that meant damaging his emotional well-being.
