Euthanasia is the act of allowing an animal to die by withholding medical treatment, or humanly and painlessly putting the animal to death using an inhaled or intravenous anesthetic drug.

Euthanasia is typically performed when a health condition is incurable and painful, though of course it is also commonly performed on pets that have been abandoned and cannot be rehomed.
