Euthanasia with inhalants


  • Chloroform, ether, halothane and methoxyflurane. They are useful in the euthanasia of young animals like pup and kittens when venipuncture is difficult.
  • Carbonmonoxide: Carbonmonixide 6% is effectively used to euthanize small animals like dogs and cats.
  • Carondioxide: used to euthanize small laboratory animals such as mice, rat, rabbit and poultry birds. A combination of CO2 (40%) and CO (3%) can also be used for euthanasia.
