related to the cruelty not the post

had a employees at walmart tell my kids to stick popsicle sticks in their fishes mouths when they die so they could be fish sticks in the freezer.

Flushing a fish is not only the cruelest way to euthanize a fish- but it can also be harmful to the environment.........sometimes we have to make hard decisions for our pets......you have to look at quality of life and what is in the best interest of the animal- not us...its part of responsible pet ownership........sadly, sometimes we have to euthanize humanely so the animal does not suffer needlessly.....the faster the better for both you and the animal with proper disposal of the body-either in the trash, buried, burned, fed to another animal.
If you can't do it yourself (and not everyone can) it is important to find someone that can do it for you......doing what is easy for you may not be in the best interest for the animal and/or environment and that is selfish.........

Euthing a fish with clove oil I could handle. Having multiple pets throughout my life, I know now when it is in their best interest, when it is best to just euth instead of watching them suffer and hoping they'll get better. Clove oil is OK. But I'll let the clove oil work on its own.

The problem with clove oil is it is not always effective on its own. That's why it is suggested that you put vodka in after the fish has stopped moving to ensure it is gone. Either that or you have to put a LOT of clove oil in. I prefer to always use two methods just to ensure that the fish is actually gone and not just anesthetized.

To the OP, I would ask your friend to please give you the fish, and that you will take it home and put it in a fish tank of your own. Convince them by telling them that if they did that, then their other fish would have the whole aquarium to itself like they want. Maybe they will change their mind and decide to let you have the sick one, so you can treat it.

Best of luck, I'm sorry your friend is being so heartless.
good, ill infulnce or whatever its spelled her and then she may gimmie the fish! i feel evil but to save a life out of it isnt mean.
